Day 1

Depart Salt Lake City 2:00 PM…

We start this fantastic trip by picking up you and your fellow Adventurers in Salt Lake City.
We’ll prep you for your adventure and then enjoy a comfortable journey to our first national park…

Day 2

Gooseberry Mesa…

Wake to the beautiful, scenic red rock country of Southern Utah, get your fill of hearty breakfast and head out onto this exciting, scenic trail. Gooseberry Mesa is a great combination of slickrock, singletrack and panoramic views. You’ll test your skills, acquire some new ones, and capture photos of some of the best vistas in Utah. End the day with a relaxing cookout and a campfire under the stars! 12+ miles

Day 3

Thunder Mountain…

Perhaps the most picturesque singletrack in the country, Thunder Mountain is unforgettable! Located on a high plateau, this trail winds through red rock sandstone spires called hoodoos. After riding this magical trail, enjoy a relaxing soak in a natural hot spring at Mystic Hot Springs. After our soak and cookout, we’ll head to legendary Moab, Utah! 9+ miles

Day 4

Wake to a stunning sunrise view into Arches National Park

before taking off on one of Moab’s newer tails, Sovereign Singletrack. This trail has something for everyone, fast singletrack, technical sections, sand digs, steep drops, stiff climbs, and open slickrock. After the ride we’ll cool off in a campground pool or secret local swim hole before settling into our Moab base camp for the next few days! 14+ miles

Day 5

Free Day in Moab, Utah…

Raft the Colorado, mountain bike, horseback ride, rent a jeep, try your hand at canyoneering, or relax and shop in Moab for the day. ($20-$80). We’ll assist you in setting up your day’s adventure by recommending reliable companies. In the evening, we recommend taking a sunset tour into Moab’s beautiful outback on the unique UniMog. ($35)

Day 6

Moab’s Slickrock Trail…

The Greek Deities had Olympus, and the gods of mountain biking must surely dwell here. Twelve miles of uninterrupted sticky sandstone waves for your fat tires. This ride is hard & heavenly! Later, cool off in a pool, or wander into town for an ice cream or to sample some local brews!
12+ miles

Day 7

Moab’s Porcupine Rim…

Ride this local epic with dynamic views of the La Sal Mountains and Castle Rock. Locals think this is the best ride in town…we agree! Like a phenomenal roller coaster, this trail climbs 3 miles and summits at the canyon rim, then gives way to miles and miles of hair raising downhill!

Day 8

We’ll roll back into Salt Lake City by noon, and say our goodbyes.
