Hiking
Hiking in canyons, even short hikes, requires advance planning. Many hikes involve walking in water. Rivers and washes are subject to flash flooding. Know the weather and flash flood potential forecasts before starting your trip. The forecasts are posted daily in park visitor centers. Many canyons require ropes, hardware, and advanced technical skills for rappelling and ascending.
