Hiking Guides

Wander through the wonders of Bryce Canyon Country when you hike through the many attractions and scenic vistas in the area. Whether you decide to walk a paved trail, hike a moderate incline, or go on a multi-day backpacking expedition, there is something for everyone.

Backpacking through the backcountry of the region is fun for adventure enthusiasts that want to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Bryce Canyon Country. Multiple outfitters are available to help guide you safely through the canyons and forests, as well as camp with the proper permits and more.

Slot Canyons provide multiple hiking opportunities that are fun for families, but they also offer the thrilling escapade of rappelling, canyoneering and scrambling through the narrow passages. Hiring a guide and outfitter fo this type of adventure is not only a great resource for safely traversing the canyon cliffs, but also the perfect way to journey into off-beat trails that visitors don’t normally get to see. If you’re new to slot canyon adventures, see our beginners guide.

Choose trips ranging from half a day to 3-5 days, you can explore hidden wonders, red-rock canyons of the Escalante River and Dixie National Forest.
