Utah River and Wilderness Expeditions since 1964... come Tag-A-Long with us!

San Rafael Swell Overnight Jeep & Hiking Tour 2 Day – (SR1)

Adventure Description

This is an expedition for the true pioneer. This little explored wilderness area is remote and is perfect for the person with a sense of adventure. Hiking through slot canyons, finding petroglyphs, and wilderness camping make this trip a great mini-expedition!

Adventure Level

Fitness Level: Excellent to above average. Summer heat can make it more challenging.


Day 1 – Lunch, Dinner

We will depart from the Tag-A-Long Expedition’s office in Moab and proceed west toward the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park. We will make a quick lunch to take with us, and then hike down 600’ to the canyon floor. Walking along the streambed we will see 3 ancient pictograph panels on our way to our final destination, “the Great Gallery”. This site is known as the best example of Barrier Canyon style rock art in the world and you will see why when you stand in the shadows of these life-size, haunting, images painted on the sandstone. We will then trek back out to our vehicle, and on to our first campsite.

Day 2 – Breakfast, Lunch

Today we take the opportunity to explore the area around us. We will see Swasey’s Cabin, the Fridge, Dutchman’s Arch, Lonesome Warrior and the Head of Sinbad Pictograph Panels, and, depending on road conditions, we may go to Eagle Arch. For the grand finale, we will head for Black Dragon Wash. Here we will see the famous Black Dragon Pictograph, before heading back to Moab. Return to Moab is approximately 5:30pm.
