This day hike starts out with an early morning departure from your hotel of choice in Flagstaff, AZ. We will arrive with a variety of snacks, muffins, cinnamon rolls and drinks for our ride through the Navajo Reservation north to Antelope Canyon, one of the most famous Slot Canyons in the United States. You will have a short restroom break and also a shopping break at one of the oldest trading posts in the Southwest, the Cameron Trading Post. This is the most photographed slot canyon in the world!

From there you will continue north until we reach Antelope Canyon. Antelope Canyon is located on the Navajo Reservation where we will be accompanied by a Navajo Guide provided with entry. There are two Antelope Canyons; we prefer the Lower Antelope Canyon which is less crowded and we will get deeper and deeper in the Canyon as we descend the staircases. Here we will spend an hour within the slot canyon that is famous for its’ light beams and narrow walls. Here we will spend an hour within the slot canyon that is famous for its’ light beams and narrow walls. The hike within Antelope Canyon is less than a quarter-mile one way with no elevation gain or loss. The photos provided will explain what the canyon looks like, but it will not give you the true feel and beauty that is held within this canyon. After the hike in Antelope Canyon we will have a stop with a three-quarter mile hike one-way for a spectacular view of the Colorado River at Horseshoe Bend.
Following the hike back from Horseshoe Bend you will have a cold-cut lunch, fresh fruit and refreshing drinks. Next you will stop at some spectacular Dinosaur Tracks over 200 million years old within the Moenave Formation. From here you will also have another restroom break at the Cameron Trading Post. This will also give you another chance to buy the beautiful Navajo rug or that incredible horsehair pottery piece that you talked yourself out of on the way to Antelope Canyon.
Walkabout Adventures looks forward to providing you with this spectacular day trip giving you the chance to see the Southwest as the Locals do.
