SAND & SNOW
A favorite multiday trip - includes hiking, camping, and stand up paddling in spectacular sandstone of southern Utah.
About the Experience
This is a two to three day tour that gives you the opportunity for a full experience. Paddle your SUP around the small coves on a beginner friendly lake. Enjoy a healthy lunch while digging your bare toes into the coral colored sand.
Once you have thoroughly explored Sand Hollow, take a short, scenic drive to Snow Canyon.
Tucked quietly away in sandstone cliffs and giant black lava flows, the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve awaits. Originally established to protect the endangered desert tortoise and its habitat, the area offers fabulous hiking opportunities.
Scramble over fiery red sandstone and wind your way deep into the Hidden Pinyon trail. Sage and juniper scent the air, as you trek over ancient basalt flows. You might see coyotes, quail, roadrunners, or a canyon tree frog.
You will feel the magic when you camp where the Anasazi Indians inhabited the region from A.D. 200 to 1250, followed by Pauite Indians. Mormon pioneers later stumbled upon it while searching for lost cattle.
This is the most value-packed and scenic tour you could experience on a short getaway from Vegas.
