Moab Adventure Center in Utah recently added a new Moab canyoneering option that includes rappelling & adventure hiking in Bow and Arrow Canyon.

This five-hour adventure begins with a hike among sandstone fins up to Longbow Arch, followed by rappelling through slot canyons hidden by massive sandstone monoliths. The route descends farther and farther down into the canyons on each of four rappels. The first descent is a warm-up at 15 feet, followed by descents of 80 and 25 feet, concluding with an open drop of 50 feet.

Professional canyoneering guides provide detailed instruction through each section, offering insights into geology, plant life and natural history. No experience is required, just an appetite for adventure. These twice-daily immersions into prehistoric worlds continue through November.
