Sandstone Arch… And more exploring

November 28, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am UTC-8

Please note, our articles may contain referral or affiliate links.

We will meet at Red Rock Casino on the West side parking garage on the Third floor as usual. Is the garage close to the 215. We will carpool, only if you don’t mind riding with others. Feel free to drive yourself to the park but you are responsible for your own fees to the park. Most of us have the annual pass, so no need to pay entrance

Why so early? Because the park now requires for each of us to have a “Permit” to enter the park. Good thing is that the requirement is only applicable after 8:00 a.m., so that is why that we will go in before the require time. Just don’t forget to be there with the new time. You are all getting an extra hour to sleep in. So, please move your clocks an hour back, your cellular phones will automatically do it.

This will be a 20% exploratory scramble/hike. Good opportunity for new and old hikers… It will take about or less than 20 minutes to get to the Arch, then we will take some photos there for those who have never been there and start our exploration from the Arch. Up to the Arch is less than class 2 then it might become class 3 or more. Feel free to just hike to the Arch and then wait for us there or if more than 3 left behind, you may go back to your cars. But I will need for you to message me when you get home. I need to know you are safe. Know that I won’t left behind parents with their teen kids. Adults know how to take care of themselves but teen kids don’t. Those are the rules… Thanks

Sticky shoes are recommended but not necessary. Any hiking shoes or boots will do, but not tennis shoes or running shoes. The entrance to red rock canyon is now $15 but if you have the national pass is all cover. You may purchase your Annual Pass which covers all National parks, like red rock, lake mead, zion, bryce and more for only $80.
