Has anyone ever hiked all the way from Tropic Utah to Lee's Ferry Arizona along the Paria River? I have considered doing it for many years. Its about 75 miles one way and the total elevation loss is only about 2000 feet. I figure a year with lots of snowpack in the mountains above the Paria would make a good springtime to do it. Or chance doing it during the late summer to Fall during the late rainy season of September?

I have only hiked the lower midsection between US89 to the Confluence with Buckskin Gulch. The lower area below that is some its best narrows and there seems to be some 1/4 wide areas below Tropic and above US89.
