Great Channels Slot Canyon Day Hike and Yurt Camping

Great Channels Slot Canyon Day Hike and Yurt Camping
Friday-Snday, November 9-11, 2018
Marion, VA
2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
$80 members, $90 non-members
Level: 9, 7.0 miles

Escape for a long weekend in southwest Virginia where we will day hike a maze of slot canyons similar to what could be found in the southwestern United States! The sandstone formations in Great Channels Natural Area Preserve create a maze of trails and rocks and is one of Virginia's most geologically fascinating areas and a hidden-gem of a hike.

Our overnight lodging is in Yurts which are round dwellings on a wooden deck with sleeping arrangements for 4. Yurts bridge the gap between tent camping and staying in a cabin with no electricity. Outside is a fire ring, picnic table, water pump and nearby comfort station with hot showers.

Participants should be prepared for cold weather hiking and camping. Gear sharing, meal planning, carpooling and all other details will be worked out by email the week before the trip.

This trip is mid-day Friday to Sunday.

Registration Deadline: Wednesday, October 31, 2018 5:00 p.m.
