Grand Staircase-Escalante Hiking & Backpacking
The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is one of Utah's most amazing off-the-beaten-path destinations, and one - in our humble opinion - not to miss! One of the last areas in the lower 48 to be mapped, the Grand Staircase is a vast high desert landscape characterized by beautiful rock formations, slot canyons, spring-fed creeks, arches, waterfalls, Native American history, pioneer history, and more!
Our Grand Staircase-Escalante offerings include backpacking trips; basecamp tours that visit other parks like Zion and Bryce as well; and inn-based tours that also feature other parks along with the Grand Staircase. Our Best of Utah tours (inn-based and basecamp) combine the best of Utah - the popular and iconic parks, Zion and Bryce - with the seclusion and wild feel of the Grand Staircase.

"This far exceeded any expectations I had not only on this area but especially on the guides. Adam and Kelsi could not have been better. They were totally professional while at the same time showing a great sense of humor with our group. I was super impressed with the whole process and hope that I can go another Wildland adventures." - Fawn C.
"The whole experience was the perfect combination of professionalism, and providing a fun and exciting week of hiking, learning, and comaradery. You have a great group of men and women in your organization. Adam and Kelsey could have done nothing different or better to make my week more enjoyable. Much thanks to your whole crew!" - Terry C.
