Vehicle upgrades, driver experience, and skill is a large part of what is needed to enjoy the famed Moab trails. We reserve the right to refuse a guided tour in the event that we are not comfortable with the vehicle condition and driving skills being complimentary to the level of trail difficulty. As an example, Pritchett Canyon with a trail difficulty rating reaching level 9, is definately not for everyone. We hope everyone on tour has a fun, safe, and return visit to enjoy everything great about visiting Moab.

Please keep in mind that we are not affiliated with the Jeep© corporation nor the Badge of Honor© program in any way, form, or capacity. Though, we do have the Guide Permit from the apropriate federal agency that licenses us to provide tours on the trails associated with the above program.

*Elephant Hill is a Badge of Honor© trail in the Canyonlands National Park Maze District located southwest of Moab. This trail requires a day use permit that has restrictions and conditions. As one of the most technical four-wheel-drive roads in Utah, Elephant Hill presents drivers with steep grades, loose rock, stair-step drops, tight turns, and tricky backing. Once over the hill equally challenging roads lead to various features as well as BLM lands neighboring the park. Due to National Park concession permit limitations we do not offer guiding on this trail, but if you are interested check out this link: https://www.nps.gov/cany/planyourvisit/needlesroads.htm
