Moab is the ultimate 4x4 destination and we’ll take you off the beaten path to discover the undiscovered. This tour follows remote routes through some of the most beautiful desert country in North America. You will climb mountain roads, descend into gorgeous red rock canyons and visit 900 year old Anasazi dwellings. It is a favorite family adventure offering something for everyone.
Starting in Moab the tour takes you through Lockhart Basin via Kane Creek road that is known to outdoor adventurers as a must see trip. Newspaper Rock awaits those who want to see authentic Native American rock carvings.
Montezuma Canyon is another less known deep canyon containing Anasazi Ruins, rock art and modern day cliff dwellings. We enjoy lunch on the trail again near Three Kivas and spend the afternoon in Hovenweep National Monument. The road is not as adventurous as prior day, but is equally beautiful and a photographers dream.
This trip offers adventurers the opportunity to travel down the river and experience hard to find and little known ruins that only boaters can get to or drive in the Jeep through famous and well known roads that your friends will all be envious of. These roads include Moki Dugway, Valley Of The Gods and Snowflat Road. Imagine the reality of eating lunch with your friends and family overlooking the vast Utah landscape at the top of the Muley Point looking down at the Goosenecks. The pictures taken here by professional photographers are famous.
