Colorado Plateau - San Rafael Swell Rides


Colorado Plateau - San Rafael Swell Rides
Utah USA

The San Rafael Swell is 2,800 square miles of uninhabited wilderness--nearly two times the size of Rhode Island without a single human resident. The Swell is a gigantic bubble in the earth's crust which has eroded into a maze of deep, multi-hued canyons punctured by the mesas, buttes and pinnacles typical of the world famous canyon lands geography.

Riders will explore intricate trails established by native Americans, herdsmen and outlaws during the day, and then hear stories about these trailblazers while relaxing around the camp fire at night. Always a high point of the trips are views of mustangs or bighorn sheep which occur, with rare exception, daily.

From a deluxe basecamp riders will visit Red Canyon, The Penitentiary, The Chute, Muddy River Gorge, Chimney Canyon Gorge, Head of Sinbad, Courthouse Butte, Family Butte, Golden Gate, Twin Priests, Devil's Monument, Devil's Racetrack, Joe and his Dog, Sid's Mountain, Swasey Arch, Dutchman Arch, Saddle Horse Canyon, Cold Canyon, The Snake Dance pictographs, South Fork pictographs, The Blue Man pictographs and more.
