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.
