Welcome!

Outdoor adventures have been our passion since February 2003. Every local hike feels like a rich vacation somewhere far from home. Within minutes of leaving the valley we enter a very beautiful new landscape. During the fall season, our hikes center around the spectacular fall colors and help us transition into the winter hiking season.

As a result of this frequent mini rich vacation we find ourselves healthier, happier, and more productive. By attending often, you'll receive increased physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual and even financial health and wellness. At the end of the hike you'll feel more relaxed, less stressed, more motivated, satisfied, inspired and energized.

All trails are subject to change due to weather/road/trail conditions.

TIMELINE:

  • 8 AM - Start gathering, greet hikers, arrange carpools as needed, final instructions
  • 8:15 AM - Drive to the trailhead (15 - 30 minute drive time unless otherwise stated) 
  • 8:30 AM - Start hiking
  • 11 AM - Off the trail (some may enjoy a shorter or longer hike)

Those who are new to hiking are invited to join us for a very short hike lasting only 30 - 60 minutes.

This outing is part of a series of hikes offered weekly, year-round, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. Regardless of your hiking abilities, join us in our beautiful outdoor playground known as the Wasatch Mountains and beyond. We hike a new trail often and the caliber of people who attend makes every outing exciting. Each hike may vary in trails, canyons, and terrain, but they are all generally similar in nature.

In addition to local hikes, you are invited to join all of our adventure trips.
