Trip Overview

This trip will take you through a spectacular set of canyons. We will be in the beautiful desert sands hiking near the Escalante River between Chop Rock and Neon canyons. There will be some river crossings and we will visit some out of the way canyons such as Ringtail which is a slightly technical slot canyon. We will explore the narrows and side canyons of Chop Rock.
The trip includes 5 days of incredible hikes in the Egypt area of the Escalante/Grand Staircase out of Boulder, Utah. The guides will do all of the cooking and cleanup and taking care of the llamas. The llamas will carry all of the heavy equipment and the participants will carry a small day pack. All meals are covered from lunch day 1 through lunch day 5. Single tents are provided at no extra charge.

Activities / Difficulty

Hikes will be approximately 8 miles a day over a variety of terrains and elevations. Prerequisites for the trip are a good attitude, tolerance, and good physical conditioning! Participants must feel comfortable with water crossings.
