Upper Muley Twist Canyon Hiking Tour


Upper Muley Twist Canyon

The Upper Muley Twist Canyon cuts parallel along the spine of the Waterpocket Fold creating a canyon of endless colors. Navajo and Wingate sandstone layers are exposed by the tilted uplift and folding of the Earth’s crust and sculpted by millions of years of erosion. 

Highlights of the hike are the 100 mile-long monocline (longest in western hemisphere), narrow slot canyons, slickrock, large arches and amphitheaters from the top of the Waterpocket Fold.

A diverse hike that our professional guides can somewhat customize.  For those interested, we can take additional time in the narrow slot canyons as well as the high country hiking along the top of the monocline looking down.

$790 (1-2 people), $890 (3-4 people), $990 (5-6 people)
