MOAB UTAH   ::    ADVENTURE CAPITOL OF THE WEST

Moab Utah Hiking

Escalante_4292686961_lTag-A-Long and Adrift Adventures  have a handful of guided hiking tours that mimic a pilgrimage during which travelers come to know themselves through knowing a landscape. These hiking expeditions offer an opportunity to access places of solitude and serenity and allow time to study the wilderness in all its minutia.

Use time to watch the beetle crawl across the sand or to meditate with lizards. Use time to stop and feel your place in the universe, whether standing before a vast panorama of canyons, or listening to public lands topics and natural history, your heart will ache.

We keep in mind soaring temperatures of mid-summer and may modify walk lengths to suit the conditions.

Horseshoe Canyon -- Part of the Great Gallery

Canyonlands National Park Horseshoe Canyon Hiking 1 Day

Horseshoe Canyon is in the outlands, an annex of Canyonlands National Park. On this trip you are the adventurer, you are walking in the footsteps of the ancient ones. You will visit one of the world’s finest, undisturbed rock art panels left by ancient Native American cultures. You’ll visit the Great Gallery rock art panel, famous for its “Holy Ghost” image and ponder the mystery of their disappearance as your guide helps you unravel their story. The hiking in the canyons will leave you feeling strong and confident and maybe a little unwilling to return to civilization. While the hiking is appropriate for people in relatively good condition, there are no technical climbs or skills required.

Desolation Canyon Family Rafting

Green River Family Rafting Desolation Canyon 5 Day

The Green River lies in a wide river canyon. Its banks are lined with giant old cottonwood trees intermingled with juniper and pinion. The green of the trees stands in stark contrast to the rock cliffs, making this one of the most beautiful – and little appreciated – canyons in Utah. You’ll encounter rapids four of the five days – over 50 in all! This is more rapids than on any other Tag-A-Long rafting vacations! These are good natured rapids, easy to learn on and play in. The whitewater is rolling and playful in disposition yet give eager students the opportunity to learn to read and negotiate the river. You can choose your own vessel, too: inflatable kayak, family paddle raft, or the “mother” raft. Price includes sleeping bag, tent, and scenic flight to put in.
