Itinerary for Canyonlands Lodge Ride - Colorado Plateau

Sample Itinerary- subject to changes
Time away from the lodge may vary day to day, but as a general rule, you should plan to depart by nine each morning and to return about six in the evening. The rides are leisurely and might be divided into two groups, one group going a longer distance and one a shorter distance. Daily travel time to or from our trailhead averages about twenty minutes.

Day 1
Arrive scenic Torrey, Utah and check into your assigned lodge. Participants on lodge rides will meet with your trip leader and interpretative specialist for orientation and to outline details, destinations, and scheduling particulars at 7:00pm at your assigned lodge.

Day 2
Your guides will meet you after breakfast at your inn and then you'll depart for a short vehicle ride to the trailhead meeting the remainder of the crew and your horse. After becoming familiar with your mount, you'll hit the Sand Creek Trail for The Mummy Cliffs and Fremont River Overlook, Hell's Hole and Paradise Overlook or you'll ride along Pleasant Creek as you pass through the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park.

From your Torrey inn, you'll visit Sulfur Creek Gorge and The Goosenecks; or you'll ride the Keller Trail to Capitol Reef Overlook on Chokecherry Point and The Terrace.

Day 4
Today your accommodations will shift from the Torrey area to Boulder, Utah. For those guests traveling by automobile, you'll transfer car and luggage to trails end then go in the van to today's trailhead and ride The Slickrock Trail or you'll ride The Great Western Trail to The Terrace and Meek's Lake. Follow our vehicles to your new accommodations with plenty of time to unpack, relax and enjoy a distinctive dining experience with your guide before bedding down.

Day 6
You'll depart for a final day of riding joining your mount in Indian Gulch, then journey to The Lamp Stand, Lamanite Natural Bridge and Egg Canyon or venture to Edmund's Hole, Steep Creek Lakes and Deer Creek. On this final evening, you’ll enjoy a group dinner before your final night's stay.
