Full description
The rugged and spectacular landscape of Utah’s canyonlands is like no other place on earth. Access to some of the most stunning canyons is only possible by doing 2 of the area’s best rappels. This is a step up from a typical hike, yet is doable by almost anyone.

You’ll start out on a short hike across petrified sand dunes to reach the first of the 2 rappels. This 90-foot drop takes you into a water-carved sandstone chamber and the very heart of the Colorado plateau.

You’ll exit this amazing space through a small slot and then take a short walk to the next descent, which is a 120-foot free-hanging rappel. You’ll have an up-close look at the 243-foot long Morning Glory Arch, which is just a short distance away from the rappel station.

The activity ends with a downhill hike out to the Colorado River along a cool, spring fed stream. Your guide will tell you about the area’s wildlife, plants, geology, and local history.
