St. George, UT5.0 (3 reviews)
- Remote Wilderness

- Amazing Highline Trail
- Stunningly Vivid Night Skies
- Pristine Lakes, Meadows & Forests
- Opportunities to See Wildlife
- Cooler Summer Temps
This Utah llama trek heads up into the mountains that tower above Capitol Reef National Park and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. An amazing summer alternative to the hotter, drier canyon country of the lower elevations, this trip is a fantastic mountain excursion into pine-forested peaks, trout lakes, meadows, wildflowers and wildlife. We follow old cattle trails into the mountains where we earn breathtaking views of the Henry Mountains, Capitol Reef and the Grand Staircase. We will set up camp not far from the shore of a pristine lake and spend 1 or 2 days exploring these remote and beautiful mountains. The highlight of the trip is a traverse of the “highline” section of the Boulder Rim, which takes us across basalt outcroppings for an unforgettable high country experience!
Please note that this trip takes place in Dixie National Forest outside the boundaries of Capitol Reef National Park. It provides amazing views down into Capitol Reef, but does not take place inside the national park.
