Ready for the most adrenaline-inducing, heart-hammering adventures Southern Utah has to offer? Whether you’re into bombing single track, charging Class V rapids, tackling hidden trails or jumping out of planes — we've got nine days of thrills for you to cross off your bucket list.
Bikers of both the mountain and road varieties will delight in this itinerary. On two wheels you can hit the ground literally rolling at 11,126 feet and drop for 33 miles tackling one of the most unforgettable mountain bike rides anywhere. You can cycle one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of pavement along famed Highway 12. Hit up the technical trails of the Magnificent 7, or the playful, imaginative trails of the Amasa Back. And there’s more where that came from.
With paddles you can dive right in for the best short white water trip in the West, dropping into Class III and IV rapids through Westwater Canyon of the Colorado. Or go for the big one at the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers where you’ll take a wild ride through Class IV-V rapids in the legendary Cataract Canyon.
On foot, you can plunge yourself (and a guide) deep into the Fiery Furnace at Arches, a labyrinth of twisting and turning canyons and gorges. Climb to the hidden Moon House ruins, tucked deep into cliff sides, or the cliff’s edge Navajo Knobs with its 360-degree vistas. Wander through the Fairyland Loop of hoodoos at Bryce Canyon or the maze of canyons at the Doll House in Canyonlands. Or even head underground to the spectacular 1.4-mile-long Bloomington Cave.
Still fired up? Take to the sky with a tandem jump from an airplane for the best views of Moab.
