Depart the NAVTEC Expeditions headquarters for a full day adventure to Chesler Park in the heart of the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. We travel in heavy duty yet comfortable 4X4 vehicles.

Conquering Elephant Hill in Canyonlands National Park

Scenic vistas and incredible views are enjoyed throughout the adventure. Our route takes us over famous Elephant Hill, renowned for its difficulty as one of the most challenging trails in Southeastern Utah. We'll see the Devil's Kitchen along the way and cruise down Devil's Lane before encountering SOB Hill, another challenge to our 4X4 vehicles and our skill.

Colorful inspiring rock formations, pinion, juniper and the fragrance of sage brush entice the senses. Numerous species of cacti, active bird populations, various lizards, Mule Deer and Big Horn Sheep are frequently observed. We'll see incredible rock art along the way, all under the vibrant, blue sky of the desert southwest. 

Joint Trail in the Needles district of Canyonds National Park

The incredible landforms of the Needles are beautiful beyond description and entirely unique in their grandeur. All who visit here are in awe. After a relaxing lunch we will hike the "Joint Trail" to the spacious pastures of Chesler Park, one of the most spectacular sights in Canyonlands. The "Joint Trail" provides a good walking surface, but does have a fairly steep uphill pitch to it. The trail is three miles long, round trip, and participants can expect a strenuous hike. We have limited hiking time and elderly hikers should be in good shape. The hike is optional and some prefer to relax at the vehicle while others hike. Either way you experience the spectacular beauty and remote silence of the Needles. Certainly, one of the premiere 4X4 tours in the country.
