Advanced Cardio Hike: Weir(d) Eight

Hiking & Fitness
Join us for a strenuous, extremely challenging, fast-paced cardio hike in Weir Canyon that leads us on a figure eight-shaped route. Along the way we’ll be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Weir Canyon, Gypsum Canyon, Fremont Canyon, and Blind Canyon. Wildlife sightings are possible. This is an advanced 9.5 mile cardio hike, completed in less than 3.5 hours and includes 1800+ feet of elevation gain. This hike is for experienced, physically fit hikers who enjoy the challenge of multiple steep climbs and descents. There are no rest stops and the average 3.5 mile per hour fast-pace can be extremely difficult over steep terrain in the wilderness setting.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-5 activity on the land.

Please bring a minimum of 100 oz. water and trail snacks. Come prepared with a pack, sturdy closed-toe hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail for the extreme fast-paced hike in a wilderness area. Each participant must carry his or her own pack and water. Under-prepared participants may be denied access to this program.
