Change your environment. Change your life.
We have established over a dozen treks throughout southern Utah. One of the most popular is the ancient rock art legacy trek which begins at Delicate Arch. Two days of backpacking and one day to explore the often overlooked panel of Ute Style rock images is an exciting beginning. From there we trek to the Great Gallery in Canyonlands’ Horseshoe Canyon Unit, one of the most important rock art sites in the United States. Our trek continues into the Canyonlands’ Needles District to explore Newspaper Rock, another showcase of ancient rock art. After two days of exploring the “Needles” we then trek an hour north of Moab to Sego Canyon and explore hundreds of etched images over 1000 years old, remarkable for many reasons not the least of which is the ghostly, shamanic looking creatures throughout the canyon. This trek ends east of Cedar City in a narrow rock pass called Parowan Gap. The sheer walls contain chiseled images authored by ancient artists over 1000 years ago.
Yet another popular trek requiring great care and awareness to preserve its pristine canyons is the Escalante River Canyon, considered by many to be one of the world’s greatest wilderness treks. Our treks are approximately seven days in length depending on conditions. These slick rock canyons, which involve frequent rock climbing, stream fording and swimming, and exhausting detours around rock falls and log jams are not for the timid. But by all accounts the experience is worth the effort physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This trek is noted for assisting our clients in “finding out who they really are”.
It should be noted that Clarity programs subscribe to, and maximize efforts to comply with “no trace left behind” protocols. Our charter for integrating the wilderness as an agent of change is dedicated to the awareness, appreciation, and ultimate respect for our wilderness and wild lands.
