Information for CANYONEERING, HIKING and EXPLORING the Colorado Plateau and beyond...

Road Trip Ryan is the source for canyoneering, slot canyon hiking and climbing information, as well as many other unique adventures. Route descriptions include detailed maps, GPS waypoints, and in some cases detailed photos to keep you on the right path. Information from diverse areas of Utah, such as Moab, Zion, Robbers Roost, and North Wash showcase some of the most amazing places not just in Utah, but in the world.

If you are new to outdoor road trips, start with the easier rated canyons, climbs, and hikes, then progress to the more difficult. Places described on this site are, by design, generally off the beaten path. Also, keep in mind weather in Utah is diverse. Summers can be scorching hot in the south, or flooding with monsoon rains, while winters can range from pleasant to down right cold. Choose adventures based on both ability and season.
