An exceptionally scenic 4WD road through Hidden Canyon crosses the Grand Wash Cliffs. Small canyon cliffs appear four miles in, then become higher and higher as the road winds downstream along the canyon floor, repeatedly crisscrossing the normally dry streambed. Juniper and pinyon pine on the Shivwits Plateau in the upper canyon give way to Joshua trees in the desert country below.
Important Note Regarding Registration to Participate in Field Trips
Due to limited group size and high demand, you must register to participate in field trips. Sign up begins one month prior to each trip at approximately 1:10 p.m. on each Friday at the conclusion of the Brown Bag lecture. Participants must provide their own vehicles and fuel. Many trips will require a high clearance vehicle and four-wheel drive capacity. Lunch is provided by DASIA for a cost of $10 per person.
This schedule is subject to change based on weather, road conditions and safety considerations. Please contact the Public Lands Information Center for any schedule or location changes.
