This is a beautiful canyon ride that crosses the East Fork Virgin River over a dozen times. Most of the trail is easy footing and hard pack except for a large sand wash that we will ride for about 1.5 miles before it turns into a slot canyon. You can ride in the slot canyon for .5 mile then turn around and go back. Bring yourself water, lunch and a hat.

Ride start time will be 10:00 am
