Moab Cowboy Offroad Adventures is adding a new tour to their collection of utility-terrain-vehicles (UTV) and jeep adventures. This spring, the company will begin taking clients to dark sky areas around Moab to view planets and constellations with a telescope.
Other trips offered by Moab Cowboy include the “Sunset Tour,” the company’s most sought-after adventure, said Beverlie French, co-owner of the business with her husband David French.
“We go out well before sunset to ‘Hell’s Revenge’ – a world-famous trail in Moab,” French said. “We watch the sunset over the Moab rim.”
Moabcowboy.com describes the terrain as “like a slow-moving roller coaster on twisting, turning trails that lead you over some of Moab’s toughest slickrock.” The tour includes views of the La Sal Mountains, the Colorado River, the Moab Faultline, Arches National Park, Sandflats Recreation Area, and the town of Moab. Morning tours are also available.
Each week clients come from all over the United States and world to experience the renowned trail, said French.
There’s also the “Half and Half 3-Hour Tour” that follows the “Hell’s Revenge” as well as the “Fins and Things Trail.” Guides lead the way as clients follow along in their own rented off-road side-by-side vehicle. Vehicles can accommodate up to four people.
Jeep rides – with guides doing the driving while teaching bits of Moab history along the way – are also available. Or, you can drive your own jeep and rent a guide to lead the way.
Depending on the time of year, reservations can be made up until 15 minutes before the tour – as long as there is availability. However, during the busy autumn and spring seasons, it is best to make your reservations early to ensure a spot.
Moab Cowboy Offroad Adventures is open year-round, with phone service available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The first tour of the day starts at 9 a.m., with the daily last tour returning by 9:30 p.m.
The Frenches grew up riding off-road vehicles. Originally from Kentucky, the couple would come to Moab on vacations to ride for weeks at a time, said French. They’ve been in business for 12 years.
French said she’s typically out on the trail seven days a week, 14 hours a day guiding clients.
“We put our heart and soul into what we do,” she said.
Moab Cowboy is also available to help host weddings, anniversaries, and even proposals!
