Full description
After being picked up from your hotel in Moab, start the tour with a short 4x4 ride through rocky terrain towards the off-the-beaten-track Dad Gum Canyon. After a safety briefing from your expert guide, get geared up and begin your canyoneering experience. Hike and rock rappel into pools of water in this little slot canyon. Prepare to get wet as you find several small waterfalls and crystal clear pools. At the end of the adventure, an unforgettable 200-foot guided rappel awaits you. Once you hike out of the last bit of the canyon, make your way back to Moab where you will be dropped off at your hotel.

This trip was awesome, eventhough we came at a time of the year (sep) where there was no water and the physical surruondings therefore wasen’t as expected. But our guide Mike was the reason that, the trip ended up being all we could have hoped for! The hiking and repelling was awesome and Mike was very patient and made us feel completely safe. Thank you for a great day and experiance!
