Presented By: Red Pueblo Chapter-Old Spanish Trail Association

NATIONAL TRAILS SYSTEM ACT 50th Anniversary Event!

WHICH WAY DID HE GO? A Hike through the Paria Box

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018

Time: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Location: Meet at the GSENM Visitor Center, 745 East US. Hwy 89, Kanab. Carpool to the Trailhead.

Description: In December of 1829, Antonio Armijo of Santa Fe led a caravan of 100 mules laden with New Mexico goods to be traded for horses at the Spanish settlements in southern California. His party’s route through the formidable obstacle of the Cockscomb, between Page and Kanab, remains debatable. We will discuss the two feasible routes and hike one of them, The Box of the Paria River.

This 5-mile hike to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Trails Act is fairly easy and highly scenic but requires wading, so bring appropriate shoes and an extra pair, along with your hiking gear, lunch, hat, sunscreen and water.  Plan to be out 6-7 hours including travel time. The river can be muddy after recent rain and access by dirt road is weather-dependent.

Call the GSENM Kanab Visitor Center at 435-644-1300 to reserve your place. You must provide a phone number where you can be reached, so we can inform you of any change in plans. Limited to 12 people.
