4WD/Hiking Camp-out $650 Adult & $610 Youth
Canyonlands National Park is the jewel of the Desert Southwest, riddled with narrow canyons and surreal rock formations. For three days and two nights you will be immersed in the beautiful and remote Needles District. A place unlike any other on our planet.
We begin our journey with a trip to Beef Basin and Ruin Park, one of the largest collections of ruins you can see in Utah. The vegitation changes from dry Junipers and Sage to alpine Ponderosas as we follow Cottonwood Canyon to the back entrance of the Needles.
Guides air down the tires before we start one of the most difficult 4-wheel-drive trails in Southeasterm Utah. The right vehicle and our experience shine as we tackle the notorious Bobby's Hole and enter Canyonlands National Park.
Each evening brings us to a remote camp. Picturesque towers of red and white Cedar Mesa sandstone set the background as guides busy themselves cooking creative meals.
Hikers will want to do a number of essential hikes. Hikes are optional and trip itineraries are tailored to the expectations of each group.
You'll sleep under one of the darkest, star-filled skies visible anywhere in the U.S. (Mag 6.8) Bring your binoculars and enjoy some great star gazing. It's comforting to know that such places still exist.
We wake up to the sun lighting the tops of the Needles and another day of adventure. The Needles area is a backcountry of must see highlights including a hike to stately Chesler Park. This large flat meadow is surrounded on all sides by Needles. Getting to Chesler Park is filled with excitement as we follow a narrow ravine called the Joint Trail.
On our last day, we'll see the confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers plus many more excellent short hikes. Our route home takes us over SOB Hill down the Devils Lane and over Elephant Hill, a true test of our 4X4 rig and skill.
The incredible landforms of the Needles are beautiful beyond description and entirely unique in their grandeur.
