What we’re about

Explore Wild Utah brings people together who love the great outdoors.

We hike everywhere from cities to mountains to deserts; go hiking, biking, canyoneering, backpacking, and climbing all in celebration of nature.

While exploring Utah’s wildlands is thrilling and restorative, we care about the delicate environments and promote Leave-No-Trace principles and good trail etiquette.

To better protect ourselves from injuries and other life-threatening conditions, all members should take safety and preparedness seriously, carry the Ten Essentials, and be self reliant.

Check our calendar and join us on an upcoming adventure. We're eager to welcome new friends and hope to meet you in person soon. 

Your Organizer,

Christopher Hagedorn
