What you'll do
The dream team all have one main thing in common, WE ARE FRIENDLY! Your guide will be waiting under the shade of a tree, relaxing before the walk begins. We are just as excited to hear about your vacation as we are to spend the afternoon or evening with you, showing you things ONLY THE LOCALS KNOW. We walk through a beautiful canyon that tops-out to a MIND BLOWING VIEW, and get a feel for what we call slick rock, exploring this absurd moon-like geology, watching for wildlife and cultural evidence. -We GREET YOU at the trailhead for a 15 minute relaxing hydration session PLUS + a quick intro to the area known as The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. -We provide you with ORGANIC TREATS and water to carry on our EXPLORATION. When everyone arrives, we move towards the canyons and begin to integrate the landscape around us. -As we walk through this labyrinthine land discovering who was here before us, your guide interprets the geology, flora, and fauna along the way. And says a bit about the history here. -After about an hour, we arrive at a stunning SURPRISE! The view. We spend time here at the top soaking up the REWARD and absolute MYSTERY of our surroundings. -Last, we skip down ENERGIZED and ready to brag about our experience, planning to RETURN next time for a 5 DAY wilderness trek offered by Grant’s company Escalante Canyon Outfitters.
Hello! :) We will take you to a killer view into what we think are the COOLEST geological sights EVER, because it opens our eyes to how AWESOME LIFE IS and the importance of keeping protected areas WHOLE! Our EXCITEMENT for this land is ELECTRIC! And that is how these DAY TRIPS started—looking out over a SWEEPING VISTA with friends, sharing our wonder as lightning and purple rain painted the distance. That MOMENT, we realized that more than a hike we could offer an UNFORGETTABLE VIEW visitors couldn’t find, and a day to CONNECT LIKE LOCALS. We all agreed, and a DREAM TEAM was born! This day trip is just a taste of the 5 day horse assisted multi day hiking trip offered by Escalante Canyon Outfitters www.ecopacktrips.com

Where you'll be

Now it’s home to several species of wildlife we listen and watch for.
