The first 11 mikes or so are in sand. Got blisters because of that. So cover your shoes if you can. It was beautiful in October and enjoyed the fall colors.
Camped 2 nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Canyons. Variety of scenery and was continually amazed at the views throughout the hike. Had camp site #5 the second night and was blown away by the views! Sunrise and sunset were amazing! We only did 30 miles and ended the hike at the Lodge in Zion. Very enjoyable after not backpacking for 20 years and just getting back into it.

This run should be at the top of all ultra-runners to do list. You will not get bored on this route.
