Then Colorado Wilderness Outfitters, LLC has what your soul desires, an unforgettable trip along the Continental Divide Trail in Southwest Colorado. This trip usually books a year in advance.

Utah Canyonlands Trail Ride, In 1993, in response to longtime friends and clients, Colorado Wilderness Outfitters, LLC began conducting rides in the canyon country of Southeast Utah. Not only is the scenery of this area quite spectacular, it was also home to the ancient Anasazi Indians who lived in the region over 1,000 years ago. They left behind a fascinating history told through the many ruins and petroglyphs that we are able to examine on these rides.

All of our summer horseback vacations and services are strictly first class, with professional guides, packers, deluxe camps, high quality meals, and personalized attention to every guest. We're able to customize our summer horseback vacations to fit your exact needs.

For guest interested in learning the art of horse packing techniques and skills, we offer a comprehensive and enjoyable experience in handling and packing horses and mules in the back country. For more information on our Summer Trips see our Itinerary & Prices Page.
