The Hayduke was the most intense experience of my life. If you have two months to spare and want to experience the Colorado Plateau in its proper glory, I don’t think there’s a better way to start. You’ll get to hike through Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, Zion, and countless amazing places in between. It won’t be easy — you will lose blood, you may have one or more nervous breakdowns — but it will be worth it.
If you’re a prospective Hayduker and words are worth more than pictures, I wrote a bunch of comments on my 2018 hike.
