Our guides will take you to a beautiful remote location at the top of the Asaph Wild plateau. This area consists of a number of large sandstone boulders that long ago split off from an adjacent cliff section. The hike to this natural area is 1.8 miles. We recommend hiking boots for the hike, and bringing a small personal backpack with extra water and snacks. We provide you with sandwiches, beverages, helmets, climbing shoes, harnesses, ropes, and all other necessary climbing gear for your trip. Rock climbing requires no previous experience which makes this a great trip for beginners.

The Asaph Wild Area has many rugged flat-topped mountains with steep downhill slopes, making it ideal landscape for mountain biking. Most of the trails are fairly remote so good navigation and riding skills are required if you are biking without a guide. Our guided trips are customized to fit the needs of most groups. The beginner ride is a mix of road & off-road biking. The intermediate ride is almost entirely off-road singletrack trails with numerous outstanding downhill screamers for thrill seekers!
