Moab is the playground of the American West. Take a sunset hike to Utah’s iconic Delicate Arch and view the Milky Way after dark. Navigate the maze-like Fiery Furnace in the morning and later four-wheel drive on a hair-raising trail.

DAY 1: DEPART FROM SLC
We will depart from SLC together by 9am (or clients can meet us in Moab at noon). We will begin our adventures together with Utah’s most iconic symbol, Delicate Arch. We hike over sandstone while enjoying the unique red rock scenery of Utah. One of the fun aspects of this hike, is you don’t see the arch until the final moment. We traverse along a path marked by free standing cairns then approach the final rise, cresting over a massive sandstone bowl with Delicate Arch standing high above. If there is no cloud cover, we will stay until after sunset and enjoy the brilliant stars and moon far from any city lights.
DAY 2: ADVENTURER'S PLAYGROUND
Not only is Moab famous for its proximity to Arches, but the entire landscape here is an adventurer’s playground. Today you will see The Robbers Roost, an area full of surprises including Blue John Canyon. It is a great canyon to explore due to the high quality of the experience and its approach-ability. Blue John Canyon was made famous when in 2003 Aron Ralston, while on a solo descent, dislodged a boulder, pinning his arm to the canyon wall and leaving him trapped for five days before finally amputating his arm and making the now legendary escape. The several different forks of the canyon offer an array of options, all offering amazing scenery and challenges that are suitable for all levels of ability.
DAY 3: THE SLICK ROCK TRAIL
You can’t come to Moab and not do some off-roading. We will pick up our rental Jeeps or Razors and tackle the infamous Slick Rock Trail. Nothing can prepare you for the extreme inclines and declines we will traverse as we crawl along the 15 mile sandstone trail. After Slick Rock, we will then head out to the Rim trail and enjoy the views while driving along the rim of a deep canyon. Once we return the vehicles we will enjoy dinner and shopping in town.
DAY 4: SLOT CANYON
We will start the morning making our way back to the slickrock of Moab. We start hiking up a dry wash bed slowly gaining elevation as we make our way up to the canyon rim. As we traverse the slickrock we find out that this isn’t a dry wash bed after all. We will continue along the slickrock until we find the drop in point of the slot canyon. The canyon itself has 3-4 rappels and plenty of water to cool off in as the day heats up. We will make our way down the canyon and complete our last rappel with just a short walk to our transportation.
DAY 5: THE SLICK ROCK TRAIL
We will explore one of the most iconic areas of the park, the Devil’s Garden. Not many people venture into this section due to the unknown factor, however, we know the route. We will venture through this maze of canyons, unique formations, hidden grottos and arches. Afterward, we will head home to SLC. Those who would like, can stay behind and continue to explore this incredible area.
