TRIP OVERVIEW

This is arguably the best 4-wheeling trail in the region. In lifted Jeeps we head out majestic Highway 95 through 200’ tall cuts in Comb Ridge.  The trail then cuts up Arch Canyon following a perennial stream.  As the road gets rougher the canyon walls climb on every side. The trail ends in a ponderosa grove where we have lunch. From here, an optional short hike takes us closer to massive arches. We then follow the same trail back, viewing Anasazi ruins and taking optional side hikes. This trip captures the flavor of Southern Utah’s “Outback.”

ITINERARY

Tour meets at the Four Corners Adventures shop in Blanding, Utah located at 245 E Center Street.  After a brief orientation and questions answered we’ll load you and your bags into our Jeeps and head west of Blanding on Highway 95.  15 minutes on Highway 95 and we drive the a 200’ gorge cut into Comb Ridge where the highway passes through.  Our first stop is an overlook of Comb Wash and Cedar Mesa.  Comb Ridge is a photographers dream.

 

After following Comb Wash we hit the best 4x4 trail in the region heading up Arch Canyon.  Arch Canyon was home to hundreds of Anasazi people that farmed and survived in this desert environment thanks to a perennial stream that still flows today.  A short hike will take you right into one of these dwellings for a close up glimpse into life over 1000 years ago.  The trail then continues deeper into the canyon crossing the stream and climbing rough rocky sections until we have reached the tall ponderosa trees at the end of the trail.

 

Here we will serve lunch at the base of Cathedral Arch surrounded by 600’ red rock cliffs.  A half-mile hike up the canyon will take us to Angel Arch for those that wish to hike.  Those not wanting to hike can sit in the shade of the Ponderosas and enjoy the serenity of the canyon.  We often have the canyon to ourselves.

 

After lunch and our hike we’ll load back in the Jeeps and return the way we came stopping at more ruin sites and overlooks as time allows.  We’ll return to our shop in Blanding at roughly 5 pm.  For those wishing for faster speeds and a chance to drive yourself check out our Arch Canyon RZR Tour.  The Jeep tour is ideal for families or photographers wishing to see Arch Canyon, but without getting dusty or helmet hair.  Jeeps also have heaters allowing us to run this tour year round!
