Sand Bench Trail

0 comments
Der Sand Bench Trail liegt im unteren Teil des Zion Canyons im Zion National Park in Utah. Für den Nationalpark muss man Eintritt zahlen und vom Besucherzentrum dann mit einem Bus in das Tal hinein fahren. Man steigt dann an der Haltestelle "Court of the Patriarchs" aus und ist schon direkt am Beginn des Wanderwegs.
Dieser überquert den idyllischen Fluss und führt zunächst durch Wald aber dann eher zwischen Sträuchern hindurch in einer Schleife. Der Weg besteht überwiegend aus tieferem Sand, sodass man bei jedem Schritt etwas zurück rutscht. Das macht die Strecke deutlich anstrengender und zeitintensiver als man anhand Kilometer und Höhenprofil erwarten würde. Zudem ist man viel der Sonne ausgesetzt, wenngleich sich immer wieder schattige Plätze finden.

Die besondere Vegetation und der Blick auf die beeindruckenden umgebenden Bergmassive machen diese Runde zu einem besonderen Erlebnis und lassen sie nicht vergleichbar erscheinen zum Rest des Zion Canyons.

About the Calorie Calculator

Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.
