Saddle Heights

An intense initial climb of 600 ft. entails progressive hiking from gentle trails and canyon bottom terrain to scrambling through steep sandstone formations squeezing through cracks and chimneys. This route provides access to a wide ridge with an intricate maze of formations and wide ranging views. This mile long ridge eventually arrives at one of the most spectacular summits in the region. Red rock canyons drop off in every direction and are framed by the Pine Valley mountains and Zion National Park on the horizon. Descending down a long and exposed ridge requires minor agility; the return hike is through a water carved canyon of arches, alcoves and desert tanks and eventually attains a saddle and a welcome downhill ramp back to the start.
