  • Entrance to Zion Narrows Protected

    The main entrance hikers use to get to the Zion Narrows Trail, one of the West’s most popular hiking routes, has been permanently protected from development into homes, Trust for Public Land announced today.

    Erik Weihenmayer, the famed blind adventurer, who led a hike of the Zion Narrows as part of the effort to save the trailhead, said, “The Narrows is easily one of the best, if not the best, hike I’ve ever been on. It is an amazingly unique and dramatic environment, changing with every turn and different with every season. At one point, thigh deep in cold rushing water, I reached my trekking poles out to each side and felt smooth overhanging canyon walls which went up 3,000 feet on each side and blocked out the sun. It was such a privilege to be part of this project to help more people get to experience it. Now that a blind guy has braved it, there are no excuses.”
