Redrock Adventure Guides specializes in custom hikes, backpacking, canyoneering, photo tours, and base camps, in and around Capitol Reef National Park – at reasonable prices. Were happy to accommodate large groups and auto tours, but were mostly about small-group muscle-powered backcountry travel, and all about your experience, not our volume business plan. Our primary interest is leading guests into real wilderness. Not manicured front-country. Not crowded day hikes. Not standard trails where a thousand guidebooks have gone before.
Founded and run by long-time Backpacker Magazine Field Editor Steve Howe, we concentrate on off-the-beaten path excursions to Capitol Reefs secret gems, at all levels of challenge from relaxed to ambitious. During any outing we can provide informal clinics on local flora and fauna, history, archaeology, geology, navigation, rope work, and photography or videography. Enjoyment, instruction, and safety are our biggest priorities.
