Thanksgiving Hiking

in Utah

Utah is home to some of the most beautiful and unique terrain best explored on foot.  We will have a rental house as our base to explore carved landscapes, rock art, arches and spectacular overlooks in nearby parks like: Capitol Reef, Arches & Canyonlands National Parks; Dead Horse & Goblin Valley State Parks.  We will have daily hikes for every skill level, and a full-moon hike on Thanksgiving!

Mark your calendar for our pre-trip planning meeting on October 7th to discuss what to bring, park & trail information, what to expect, etc. We will discuss car rental/carpooling from either Salt Lake City or Grand Junction, shared food/meals, including Thanksgiving dinner, kitchen duties, & sleeping arrangements.



Transportation will need to be agreed upon by those flying into Salt Lake City or Grand Junction, and carpooling in a rental car. Teresa and Michelle are driving there so only one additional, high clearance car is required.  Fly in around noon, fly out around 2pm - we need time to tidy the rental house and drive to the airport!  Please make plans to attend the pre-trip meeting to determine arrangements.


We will have a full kitchen!  Everyone will pitch in with meal preparation, cleaning and kitchen duties.  Please let an event leader about any dietary restrictions.


What to Bring

You will need to bring hiking gear, including a day pack, trekking poles (if desired), hiking shoes, hydration system and clothing. Pack and dress in layers – highs will be in the ‘50-60s, and lows in the ’20-30s. Personal toiletries, any comfort items you desire, and consider ear plugs since we’ll be sharing rooms!


Estimated cost per person:

·        $100-150 groceries

·        $100-150 rental car & fuel

·        $200 home rental

·        Airfare (TBD)

Price includes: 7 nights/8 days (Sun-Sun), home meals/snacks, shared transportation to/from airport & parks, & daily planned activities. Sundays will be scenic travel days!
