Overview

Hit the dusty trail on a 4x4 tour of Canyonlands National Park. Expert guides will take you to see the highlights of Utah’s Chesler Park such as Elephant Hill, Devil’s Lane, and Devil’s Kitchen. There’s also the option to take a 3-mile (4.8-km) hike on the spectacularly scenic Joint Trail. This full-day adventure is the perfect way to experience Utah’s backcountry away from the crowds.
  • Full-day tour to Chesler Park in Canyonlands National Park’s Needles District, from Moab
  • Access beautiful backcountry by 4WD with an experienced guide
  • Go off-road on some of the most challenging tracks in southeastern Utah
  • Learn from your guide about the geology, wildlife and history of Chesler Park
  • Take an optional hike on the Joint Trail that leads through a beautiful red rock landscape
  • Includes lunch, water, lemonade and transport by 4WD
This tour of Canyonlands National Park begins in the middle of Moab, where you’ll meet your guides and hop in the comfortable 4x4 off-road vehicle. The drive to the Chesler Park area is approximately two hours, as it’s located out in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.

The reward for the lengthy drive, however, is sweeping vistas of desert landscapes you’d expect to see in brochures, where multicolored rock formations emerge from the sun-scorched earth. You’ll explore the ancient rock formations and weave through the cactus, looking for wildlife like mule deer, lizards, or herds of bighorn sheep.

At Elephant Hill, watch as your guide skillfully maneuvers what's known as one of Utah’s most challenging 4x4 trails. You’ll pass Devil’s Kitchen and Devil’s Lane before emerging at SOB Hill.

Towards the middle of the day, you’ll enjoy a tasty, buffet-style lunch at a panoramic viewpoint, and then be given the option of hiking along the dusty Joint Trail. The 3-mile (4.8km) loop leads towards the Chesler Park meadows, which are often considered as one of the park’s most spectacularly scenic spots.

The trail itself weaves through towering boulders and an intriguing network of canyons, and even though the path is well groomed and the trail is well defined, it’s still a hike that’s sufficiently challenging for even the most experienced of hikers. If you’d prefer to skip the Joint Trail hike, you’re allowed more time to photograph the views surrounding your scenic lunch spot, before continuing on in the 4x4 vehicle to remote sections of the park.

At the end of the day, having scoured the furthest and most isolated corners of Canyonlands National Park, your guide drops you off in the middle of Moab from where the tour began.

This is not for the scardy cat. This is a true 4x4 experience. You will drive over boulders that you would think were impossible to get over in a motor vehicle. Our driver was very good. It was exciting, bumpy and very cool. the scenery was amazing. The driver had some quirky personality traits, but loves the land and is very skilled.

We had an amazing experience exploring the needles district with our guide, John. None of us had ever done any 4 4'ing before so really didn't know what to expect. After leaving the visitors center in the Needles district we drove to the end of the paved road. John provided knowledgeable information about everything on the way, from the geology, to the animals, to butch cassidy and the Sundance kid. At the end of the paved road we came to what I learned was Elephant Hill. I thought we were getting out to walk. Nope, John expertly guided the truck up the 40? degree incline over rocks and bolders. And so it went. He was very nonshelant about the drive, As he had done it so many times before. Later we stopped at a remote area for a nice lunch, followed by a hike though a trail that took us up through narrow rock canyons to a spot where we overlooked the whole district. John was a terrific host and we had a blast.

Loved the whole experience-super memorable. The full-day was a great option as we felt that a half day would not have been enough. Our guide was super capable and a great driver and guide. Amazing scenery, good mix of crazy off-roading, hiking, etc. we loved the hike through the needles area. Loved the whole adventure worth the money, and would highly recommend it.

Amazing! Our guide, John, of Navtec Adventures was very knowledgeable about the geology and was very capable at maneuvering the terrain. Elephant Hill was specifically challenging and he handled it with the ease of a professional.
