The US Department of Agriculture, which administers the US Forest Service, places restrictions on guided hiking within the National Forests. On Day 4 of this trip, we hike in Boynton Canyon where guided hiking is prohibited. Since your leaders will be unable to hike with you in this location, they will provide a pre-walk briefing, map and directions so you can explore the canyon on your own. Thank you for helping us cooperate with the USDA's regulations.
