The best people to immerse you in a destination are the ones who live there, which is why we feature local Adventure Guides on our trips. Here are a few that you might meet on this adventure.

Levi W.

Levi W.

Levi grew up in rural Kansas. From flowing fields of wheat to the flowing rivers of the Southwest, Levi has always had a passion for the natural world. He’s been guiding since 2016, running rivers in Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Mexico, and hiking adventures in Texas and Utah. He enjoys opening the door to new experiences for guests.

Fred A.

Fred A.

Fred enjoyed his first backpacking trip in college, walking 20+ miles in inappropriate footwear and spending a few cold nights in front of the fire without a sleeping bag. He caught the travel bug from there and was soon plotting and executing adventures in California's endless wild places. In addition to being an adventure guide, Fred is also an EMT with a certification in wilderness medicine. He's hiked and climbed thousands of miles around the Sierra including a solo 200+ mile hike of the Sierra High Route. Join Fred on MT Sobek's hiking adventures in California.

Abigail is a native of upstate New York, nestled at the foothills of the Adirondacks. Since her early days, she and her family have immersed themselves in the wonders of the Adirondacks, embarking on hiking, biking, skiing, and boating adventures. In recent years, her pursuits have shifted, balancing her time between guiding rafting trips through the Hudson River gorge in the summers, and rock climbing in the renowned Gunks during the school year. She has a degree in outdoor education and is currently pursuing her interest in art at SUNY New Paltz. Her heart craves adventure and the outdoors, and she loves to share her passion with others.

FAQs


How should I train for my Southwest trip?

The best training is hiking. Work up to hiking similar distances with your daypack loaded with the same weight you will be carrying on your day hikes.

What kind of wildlife am I likely to see?

Wildlife commonly seen includes: Mule Deer, Utah Prairie Dogs, Chipmunks, Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels, Pronghorn (antelope), Gray Fox, Ravens, Steller's Jays, Clark's Nutcrackers, Red-tailed Hawks, Turkeys, and Mountain Short-horned Lizards. Black Bear, Elk, and Mountain Lions are rarely seen.

What do I need to take to hike the Narrows?

MTS provides trekking poles, a dry bag for valuables (carried by the guide), and garbage bags for wet shoes/clothing. After the guides teach techniques and safety, we work as a team to navigate up the canyon, with the goal of reaching Orderville Canyon (a tributary). The hiking is about 65+% on land and 40-% in water. The first mile is 100% dry, though there is one long wading section immediately following the first mile. Guests should bring old tennis shoes or sturdy walking sandals like Chacos or Teva. Sneakers you can get wet often work best, those wearing sandals should wear socks under them to prevent rub marks due to sand getting under the straps. Neoprene socks are a bonus, but not required. Guides will advise if a change of shorts will be a good idea based on current water levels and temperatures. If the water is very high or cold, we walk along the riverbank for 1-mile, enter the water (optional), and only go a short distance up canyon to Mystery Canyon side waterfall. We then add another hike to the day, such as Emerald Pools.

When is the best time to go on this trip?

The canyons of the Southwest are wonderful destinations from late April through mid-October.

When should I arrive for the trip?

Guests should arrive in Grand Junction, Colorado the day before the trip starts. We recommend staying at the Courtyard Marriott Grand Junction and LaQuinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Grand Junction for the pickup transfer that will happen on Day 1.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our private trip options for families and groups with younger guests.
Are there any group savings?
Yes, we offer two ways to enjoy group savings on many adventures in North America, including this one. Either bring a group of 10 and receive 10% off per person or opt for an eleventh person to go for free! Call our expert Trip Consultants on 800-974-0300 to discuss group savings options.
