Colorado Plateau - Escalante Canyons Ride


Colorado Plateau - Escalante Canyons Ride
Utah USA

The Grand Staircase/Escalante Canyons National Monument is Utah's largest tract of unspoiled wilderness. Over the eons, the Escalante Canyons have been sculpted by wind and water into a maze of gigantic proportions. This is a landscape of slickrock punctured by deep, narrow canyons.

A landscape so rugged and remote that the tiny village of Boulder, Utah, which lies within its midst, could not be reached by automobile until 1938. The Escalante River was the last named and explored drainage in the continental United States.

When summer's heat in the slickrock country becomes oppressive, the lure of glacial lakes and lush meadows beckons both horse and rider. June through August’s rides explore the plateau tops and canyons where Capitol Reef National Park and Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument make their dramatic break towards the Colorado River.

A deluxe basecamp will serve as your home for daily forays deeper into the wilderness. Exploring a new trail each day, you may visit ancient petroglyphs, slot -canyons, rock arches, buttes and spires.

Experience Circle Cliffs, Indian Gulch, The Stairs, Lamanite Natural Bridge, The Lampstand, The Moodys, Deer Point Overlook, The Purple Hills, Silver Falls Canyon, Little Death Hollow, Wolverine Petrified Forest and more.
