From Moab: Half-Day Canyoneering Adventure in Entrajo Canyon
- Hike through a beautiful, water-carved red rock slot canyon
- Enjoy a short 15-foot (4.6-meter) rappel and a longer 90-foot (27.4-meter) rappel
- Learn about the amazing geology and ecosystem of the Moab valley
- Discover various canyoneering techniques that even beginners can learn
- Delight in a private guided tour with just your group plus your experienced guide
After meeting your guide in Moab, head toward the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) loop hike in Entrajo Canyon. Start at the bottom and hike and climb up to the top of the canyon. At the summit, admire amazing views of the La Sal Mountains and the red rock canyon below.
From there, learn a number of canyoneering techniques that you'll use to make your way down through the canyon, always safely backed up on rappel. Then downclimb, rappel, shimmy, and chimney (back to one wall, feet to the other) through a gorgeous red rock canyon that has been carved by water over hundreds of thousands of years.
Most of the time, there are pools of water that you must walk, wade, and sometimes swim through, making this a very enjoyable outing in the heat of the summer. Finish the tour with a 90-foot (27.4-meter) rappel to exit the canyon before making your way back to Moab.
