Join Holiday for a premier, fully supported multi day mountain biking and stargazing excursion through the San Rafael Swell. This other wordly terrain may very well be Utah’s best kept secret. Sitting tall on the Colorado Plateau, this geologic upheaval swells up in central Utah and features stunning high desert terrain! Spanning over 2,000 square miles, the best way to explore the San Rafael Swell is by mountain bike! Pinnacles and buttes tower high above and slot canyons beckon you, or follow a double track trail and stumble upon wild horses or prong horn bounding through rolling hillside. All this public land is linked via dirt roads and trails – all accessible via mountain bike or a short hike off your bike!
The allure of a guided trip through the Swell is that it’s tailorable – with no preset campsites, the hiking and biking options each day are endless! Exert yourself with rolling mountain biking terrain one day, spend the next day hiking to a vista or nontechnical slot canyon. The options within the Swell are plentiful, and your guides will help you maximize your time – explore old mining camps, cowboy camps and homesteads or perhaps take a side hike to view some indigenous rock art from the folks who have frequented these lands for thousands of years. Let your guides know if you’re craving technical single track mountain biking or if you’re looking for a steady doubletrack climb. In the evenings, kick back at camp while your guides prepare you a feast to fawn over, and our resident star expert, Tom Beckett, ignites your sense of awe as you immerse yourself in world-class stargazing. In the San Rafael Swell you can do it all – hiking, mountain biking, and stargazing!
