Grand Canyon

Stretching almost 280 miles in length, averaging a mile deep, and 10 miles wide, perhaps calling it the big ditch is a little understated. To truly experience the canyon, you need to descend one of its side canyons, or hike one of the many trails that descends below the rim.

North Wash

Canyoneering is king in North Wash, and likely the reason most visit. North Wash canyons tend to be short, narrow, and physical. This is the place to bring long sleeves and long pants. With easy access, next to the highway, this makes a good choice for groups.

Northern Nevada

Northern Nevada is the quintessential American West. Wild, open spaces that are sparsely populated with towns and ranches few and far between. This is the country where the cows, antelope, and deer far outnumber the human population.

Northern Utah

Northern Utah is the most populated area in Utah, though once you venture an hour or so away from the Wasatch Front, solitude can be found.

The Wasatch Front offers excellent hiking, climbing, mountain biking, and skiing all within a short drive of Utah's major population centers. There are many peaks to hike, climbs to climb, and routes to ski.

Zion & Southwest

Quite possibly the canyoneering capital in the US, Zion offers  canyoneering, climbing, and hiking among towering sandstone walls. The park itself is a destination, but within a short distance of the park are many additional wonders to be visited.
