Local Guides Create
a Richer Experience
Our guides live locally in Boulder, Utah and have guided and taught extensively from the adjacent desert canyons and sub-alpine mountains. We have a deep understanding and appreciation for this land, which allows us to create the perfect adventure for you. With over six decades of combined experience among our three guides, we have the “trail time” to know the moods, intricacies and challenges that this landscape presents.

A Winning Approach
We are excited about hiking in nature, exploring new areas and teaching traditional outdoor skills. Our business model is to be a small family owned nature education and guide service. As such, we focus on the quality of an experience rather than the quantity of people we guide. We are interested in providing high quality experiences that have the potential to be transformative for the people who choose to share time with us in nature.
Staying outdoors, staying small and keeping it simple;
it works for us and it works for you.
An Ounce of Prevention is
Worth a Pound of Cure!
This one simple phrase is the foundation of our operation. It is far easier to prevent an emergency than to clean up the devastation created by one. We apply this concept in the field and we also use this at home, especially in the days of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Come home to nature,
it welcomes you.”
Join us for an instructive exploration of the spectacular riparian canyon and desert slickrock environments of Escalante River canyon system within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the forest and mountain environments of Boulder Mountain within the Dixie National Forest, all of which surrounds the cozy little town of Boulder, Utah in South Central Utah.
