The Explorer - (4 Hour)

Hike Description

Who does not want to enjoy a half day hiking with a handsome llama companion in some of Utah’s most beautiful landscapes? If you are looking for something off the beaten path that you will never forget then this half day hiking tour is for you. We can go at any pace to match your desired outcome for this hike. If you are looking to challenge yourself we have routes that offer more difficult terrain. This is a great hike to see some high plain flowers and plants. Spring and summer is beautiful with the desert wild flower blossom and small critters hopping around the valley.

This area boasts an incredible diverse landscape with broad, sweeping vistas, layer upon layer of various rock formations and cliffs, limitless sky, dried up river beds and more. The scenery is just spectacular!

Your guide can give you a one-on-one landscape interpretation of the unique geology, flora, fauna, and archeological in the area, as well as, answer any questions about your llama companion. Our llamas can carry your day hiking gear, water, food and more.


We may see one or two other people off in the distance. Chances are we will not see a single other person on this trip. Due to our exclusive access few people get to see this portion of the Western Water Pocket Fold.
