1/2 Day Easy Desert Hiking Trip – Fisher Towers

The Fisher Towers trail is casual as winds its way beneath the majestic rock and mud formations – a wonderful 1/2 Day Trip for anyone who can hike 4.5 miles on an easy trail.

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 not only the largest concentration of rock towers, but also one of the largest towers in the West – The Titan, looming 900ft above our hiking trail.

Gothic fluting and natural gargoyles adorn the summits of these extraordinary features. Prized by rock climbers (see Ancient Art Rock Tower Climbing), this trail is casual as it 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!

Our scheduled hiking trips are for very small groups (no larger than six), which is why they cost a bit more than outfits that group together as many as thirty people.  Our Private or Chartered Guide trips can accommodate larger groups, see below.

$72 / person for group of 6
$80 / person for group of 5
$84 / person for group of 4
$104 / person for group of 3
$156 / person for group of 2
$312 / person for group of 1

Private or Chartered Guide
$45 / person added to your cost ensures that no one else will join your party, providing your group with more time for discussion and one-on-one instruction from our professional guides who specialize in the safest climbing/canyoneering techniques as well as the local natural history, geology, flora, and fauna.

Group discount of 10% available for eight or more.

Cancellation Policy

Because a reservation guarantees space on a trip, we sometimes have to turn others away for those same dates. Thus, cancellations must be made at least two weeks prior to the trip dates in order to receive a full refund of the reservation deposit. Any cancellations made after the two-week cut off and up to 48 hours before the trip will forfeit the $20 per person deposit. To cover our costs, we must charge the full trip amount for any cancellations made less-than 48 hours before the trip.

We will refund your entire trip amount if we must make a cancellation due to adverse weather. Please be aware that weather cancellations are made only by our guides, based on how climbing and canyoneering conditions are affected.
