Full description
Begin your journey with a pickup in downtown Moab, which will take you to the remote areas of the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. Before entering the park, take your first stop at Newspaper Rock, one of the largest petroglyph panels in the area, then head down the road and get ready to start your 4x4 experience.   Traverse the technical 4x4 trails and conquer challenging obstacles such as Elephant Hill, SOB Hill, and The Squeeze as you make your way into the Devils Kitchen, all the while taking in the incredible and unique vistas and rock formations of the Needles.   After stopping for a picnic lunch, make your way over to the head of the Joint Trail where you'll spend the afternoon enjoying the moderately strenuous 3-mile hike that meanders through iconic slot canyons and into the heart of Chesler Park. After completing the hike, settle back into your rugged yet comfortable vehicle and enjoy the ride back to Moab.

Absolutely awesome and unforgettable experience that most might not be able to do on their own in order to see so much. We were in great hands with Charlotte and Buzz. Very knowledgeable of the area also. The hike was so worth it too. Would highly recommend and do another adventure with NAVTEC.
