There are thousands of miles of offroading opportunities in Bears Ears National Monument and surrounding areas. We’ve just listed a few of our favorites. Arch Canyon is arguably one of the best 4x4 trails in all of Utah with the scenic red rock cliffs, flowing stream and ancestral cliff dwellings throughout. If you’re an looking for something more extreme than Hotel Rock climbs steep sandstone ledges up along the rim of Arch Canyon with beautiful overlooks and ends at a 1000 year old cliff dwelling that is believed to have once been home to hunters as they searched the top of the mesa for Elk and Deer. For those with limited time a half day trip will introduce you to the area hitting some of the iconic spots such as Cave Tower ruins and Arch Canyon Overlook. If there is a specific ruin or site you are interested in seeing, but is not listed on our website give us a call to set up a custom trip. These trips run year round and are a great option any time of the year.

The San Juan's upper canyon is an outdoor museum of archaeology, geology and natural history. Ruins and petroglyph panels abound while the textbook geology provides for fascinating learning and stunning red rock scenery. Three days exploring the upper canyon affords time to explore these wonders...
Float through the deep "Goosenecks" section of the San Juan's Lower Canyon. Rim out on the Honaker Trail. Explore the side canyons of Slickhorn, Grand Gulch and others. Water-sculpted side canyons with pools, falls and hanging gardens. 58 miles of solitude and canyon splendor.
This is the classic adventure where you'll see more of what the San Juan has to offer. The longer the trip, the better. Highly recommended if you want the total experience. The seven-day trip is our most popular.
This is, hands down, the best one-day river trip available in the West. In the morning we make two stops to learn about the Butler Wash petroglyph panel and River House cliff dwelling. We'll enjoy a fresh gourmet lunch under the cottonwoods before entering a limestone chasm for the afternoon...
A calm and peaceful 7 mile float on the San Juan river right here in Bluff. Choose an inflatable kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Paddle boats or rafts are available for large groups. This is a family favorite for splashing and swimming or can be a peaceful float. There are no rapids in this section of the river. This is a great way to cool off and swim after a morning hike or our half day canyoneering trip.
UPPER CANYON 3-DAY
LOWER CANYON 4-DAY

Ride in our H1 Hummer through Comb Ridge and down a rough washed out streambed along the historic Hole in the Rock Trail to San Juan Hill and River House ruin.
