With the growing popularity of this area, many of the hiking trails have become as busy as city streets. We celebrate the worlds’ appreciation of this place, but that’s really no way to experience the soul stirring power of a vast landscape.That’s why our hiking trips are for very small groups (no larger than six), and why they cost a bit more than outfits that group together as many as thirty people. Our knowledgeable guides can take you places large groups don’t fit, and also regale you with stories of the cultural and natural histories, geology, flora, and fauna. They carry with them educational materials such as artifacts and fossils, charts and books that will enrich your own knowledge and experience.
Arches National Park’s Must-do Hike
This baffling place is one of the most unique and amazing places in this desert or anywhere else on planet Earth! Ribs, arches, fins, and spires abound in the canyons of this quiet sea of red-and-yellow banded rock. Suitable for exploration year-round, our route snakes up, over and through the confusing slot canyons and subway-like passageways. The many natural wonders often encourage discussions about the flora, wildlife, and geology of this amazing and fascinating place. Stunning!
*Though this trail is only two-miles long, the hiking is not straightforward. You will be “scrambling” and “stemming” in some sections, a much slower mode of travel than just walking. Plus, the many opportunities to explore add time to this trip.
The majestic rock and mud formations of this bizarre area feature some of the tallest free-standing rocks in the U.S. With more than a dozen large spires, the Fishers have the reputation of not only the largest concentration of rock towers, but also boasts The Titan, one of the largest towers in the West, looming 900′ above our hiking trail. Gothic fluting and weird gargoyles adorn the summits of these extraordinary features. Prized by rock climbers (see Ancient Art Tower) this trail is casual as winds its way beneath these rock beasts. Steady elevation gain promises a magnificent view point of the entire Fisher Valley, the Colorado River and the Fisher Towers. Afternoon sunsets here are ethereal!
