Arches & Canyonlands Hiking

Desert redrock and the Colorado River provide a uniquely dramatic setting allowing us an opportunity to step back in time to a land of sand stone wilderness. This trip is one of our most remote getaways. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

• The mighty Colorado River
• Canyonlands National Park
• Arches National Park
• Natural Bridges National Monument
• Native ruins, pictographs and petroglyphs

WHAT TOEXPECT:

Our first three nights we lodge at the glorious Sunflower Hill Inn in Moab, whose luxurious comforts have earned it the top rated hotel award in Moab for eight years running! Day one we explore both Canyonlands National Park as well as nearby Dead Horse Point State Park. We walk atop a gigantic mesa, surrounded by the immense sea of canyons, labyrinths and mazes that comprise Canyonlands National Park, a geologists’ paradise.

The next day we visit Arches National Park, often called the most beautiful place on earth. Trails weave through a wonderland of standing desert rocks with far-reaching vistas. We’ll also visit many famous arches, including Landscape Arch, the longest in the world.

Day three we transfer locations from Moab to Bluff, stopping along the way to enjoy a spectacular hike in canyons at Natural Bridges National Monument. The town of Bluff still has an original pioneer fort dating back to 1880 when the first settlers arrived. Our home here is the Desert Rose Inn with its massive timbers and western charm. Hikes nearby lead to remote pictographs,petroglyphs and ruins from the time of the Ancestral Puebloan Indians.

Our final day takes us back to Arches where we enjoy a short hike to the iconic Delicate Arch.  No visit to the area is complete without this visit.
