GUIDED EXPEDITION TO NAMPAWEAP

Presented By: Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument

IMPORTANT NOTE: This event takes place in Arizona. 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Arizona Time is 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Utah Time!

Join rangers from the Parashant National Monument for a caravan to beautiful Nampaweap Canyon, south of the Mt. Trumbull Wilderness at 6,100 feet in elevation. Rangers will lead a short, 1.5 mile roundtrip hike to reveal hundreds of petroglyphs created by the Archaic, Ancestral Puebloan and Southern Paiute peoples. Our hike through this prehistoric travel corridor will make a number of stops to talk about 12,000 years of human history in the area, including medicinal and food plants, hunting, rock art and more!

Participants must provide their own transportation to and from the site. We recommended a high clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicle with two spare tires and a full tank of fuel. There are no comfort facilities or cell service on the Monument. Bring your lunch, snacks, sunscreen and extra water for this rare adventure!

Meet at the junction of Arizona Hwy 389 and County Road 109 (Toroweap Road) located approximately 5 miles east of Pipe Spring National Monument. Those wishing to carpool from Kanab should meet at 9:15 AM Utah Time at the Amazing Earthfest Information Table, Kane County Office of Tourism, 78 South 100 East in Kanab, and depart Kanab no later than 9:30 AM Utah Time.
