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 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.
Driving a RZR in Arch Canyon will make you feel like a kid again. Our RZR 900s are four passenger dirt loving machines that will take you places you wouldn’t believe. Everyone who is 16 or older can have a chance to drive if they want or you can sit back a relax as you scan the cliff sides for remnants of ancient cliff dwellings. These are open-air machines and we run trips March through November. Hotel Rock is another great option for those wanting an adrenaline rush. After you have done these trails there are many other great trails in the region that we’d love to take you on, but might as well start with the best of them all.
Travel the San Juan River on a rented raft or kayak. Enjoy the river with a friend in a tandem inflatable kayak or canoe. Not interesting enough? Try paddleboarding for a bit more fun.
These are the perfect vehicles for exploring the backcountry roads of San Juan County.
Rentals include map of recommended trails and roads.
Must be 25 or older to rent.
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...
This trip is for those that want to see the amazing archaeology on the San Juan, but don’t have time for the full day trip. Everyone will paddle their own tandem inflatable kayaks down the San Juan stopping at the world class Butler Wash rock art panel and then down to Comb Ridge where we’ll roll up the kayaks and jump in our H1 Hummer.
UPPER CANYON 3-DAY
LOWER CANYON 4-DAY
FULL CANYON 7-DAY
FULL DAY RAFTING
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. San Juan Hill was the road built by pioneers in 1880 to get over the top of Comb Ridge. We’ll then venture further along the river to River House Ruin.
