We offer 4, 5 and 6 day horse-supplied walking trips in the new Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Our guided hiking tours into the Escalante Canyons of southern Utah, a walking trip supplied by horse, are an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and solitude of these unique red rock canyons unburdened by a heavy pack. Our adventures are a careful blend of recreation, education and discovery. We are outfitters, committed to guiding in the traditional sense. Our goal is to exceed your expectations of service while walking softly on this land.

“...the great plateau and its canyon wilderness is a treasure best enjoyed through the body and spirit...as a place for all who wish to rediscover the nearly lost pleasures of adventure.” Ed Abbey, The Journey Home.

 1  Judy Hudson Hiking with Escalante Canyon Outfitters 2008-08-07
I loved every aspect of the trip. I was astonished by the nature. Grant& Doug were brilliant guides. They were terrific company. Knowledgeable about ... view more geology, history and knew the area inch by inch. I can’t imagine anyone better. Plus they enabled me to climb places I never could have imagined climbing. It was a privilege to go on a trip that was so wonderful. One rarely encounters excellence like that.

 2  Ian McDonald Exceeding Expectations 2008-08-07
"The trip was more beautiful, fascinating, and strenuous than I could ever have imagined and I came out feeling completely revived and refreshed by the ... view more experience. It is wonderful to go to a place so isolated from the normal cares and pressures of the world and to be able to explore the beauties of the canyons with such an experienced and professional company and with such enjoyable traveling companions."
