Guided Hikes at Pipe Spring National Monument
Celebrating Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month

March is Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month! Pipe Spring National Monument shares in the state-wide celebration by offering two very special guided hikes highlighting local geology, archeology and history.

Mu'uputs Canyon, Paiute History & Life-Ways Guided Hike-

Saturday, March 11th from 1:00pm - 3:00pm (Arizona time)

Join a National Park Service Ranger on this moderate, two-mile round trip hike into scenic Mu'uputs Canyon on the Kaibab Indian Reservation.  Along the way, participants will learn about Paiute history, traditional life-ways, and native connections to the natural world.  The hike includes visiting two ancient petroglyph sites.

 

John Wesley Powell Survey Marker Hike -

Saturday, March 25th from 1:00pm - 4:00pm  (Arizona time)

This guided hike is a strenuous three-mile round trip hike to the top of the Vermillion Cliffs. Participants will climb with a National Park Service Ranger up to 800 feet above the monument to see one of the survey triangulation stations established by the John Wesley Powell Topographical Survey Crew in the early 1870s.

What to expect:

·         Both of these hikes take place in cooperation with the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians.

·         A tribal fee of $10 per person will be collected in addition to the regular monument entry fee.

·         Participants should dress warmly, carry snacks, water, sunscreen, and a jacket.

·         Reservations are strongly recommended, as space is limited for both of these hikes. Call 928-643-7105 for reservations and hike information.

Pipe Spring National Monument is open regularly from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily (Arizona time).  The Monument entrance fee is $7.00 per person (15 years old and younger are free).  Interagency Annual, Senior, and Access passes are accepted for entry at Pipe Spring National Monument.
