NEEDLES — The Needles Hiking Club, established in the 2017-18 school year, met every Tuesday to plan and discuss places to hike. Every month, the club members hiked a new trail in the Tri-state area. Some of the trails hiked by the 25 club members were Aspen Peak and Potato Patch, trails in the Hualapai Mountains; SARA Park in Lake Havasu; the Hole in the Mountain in Needles; Grapevine Canyon in Laughlin; and around Oatman.

The final hike was a trip to Zion Canyon and Bryce Canyon national parks. Fifteen students and six chaperones took a two-day trip which include hiking Navajo Loop and Queens Garden Trails in Bryce Canyon National Park, a tour of Southern Utah University and a hike up Angels Landing to Scouts Lookout in Zion National Park.

The students had a great time, and were so grateful for the opportunity to experience all the natural beauty and exercise these parks had to offer. The Needles Hiking Club will continue hiking next year and is open to any Needles High School student.
