Advanced Cardio Hike: Weir Canyon

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. This is an advanced 9.5 mile cardio hike, completed in less than 3 hours and includes 1800 ft 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 4 miles per hour fast-pace can be extremely difficult over steep terrain in the wilderness setting.

Please bring a minimum of 100 oz. water and trail snacks.  Come prepared with a pack, sturdy closed-toed hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail for this 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.

Please note that you will be asked to adhere to the following protective measures during the activity in order to participate:

  • Each individual adult must bring with them a signed liability waiver. Minors may be added to the waiver of their respective parent or legal guardian. The form will not be available on site.

  • Be registered in advance, no walk-up registration is permitted.
