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

Best of Bears Ears and Beyond Discovery Tour

Bears Ears National Monument - Indian Creek Unit


Explore America’s first Native American National Monument on a five-day hiking discovery tour. The sacred landscapes of Bears Ears and surrounding Cedar Mesa plateau offer a glimpse into numerous prehistoric cultures through petroglyphs and pictographs, great houses, granaries, cliff dwellings, ceremonial sites and more. Learn about the historic efforts of local tribes to unite and seek federal protection for their ancestral homelands. Though the Bears Ears region has received immense national attention over the past few years, it has maintained its unique wilderness characteristics and continues to offer rare solitude and space for reflection.
