We took the evening tour through the slot canyons. It was very relaxing and beautiful. It's a good way to get away from the crowds and see some geographic features unique to the area. McClain uses a combination of horses and mules. The trip is a loop down through some canyons, leading to a stretch of slot canyons before climbing... More

My boyfriend and I took my mom on the half day slot canyon ride, and it was awesome! Personal ride away from the crowds on wonderful horses and mules. This was an extremely unique, special ride, and was my favorite horseback ride from our trip (we also did the half day rides in Bryce Canyon and at the North Rim).... More

We took the 1/2 day morning trip with McClain Mecham into the slots in Escalate/Grand Staircase. McClain is very personable, focused on his client's safety, comfort and enjoyment. He made it extremely easy and out us totally at ease. His animals (horses and mules) are extremely well trained and very responsive to greenhorns. McClain is very knowledgeable of the area,... More

My sister and I and our 2 teen-aged granddaughters had a wonderful time on a 3 hour ride with McLean Mecham in the slot canyons just outside of Cannonville. One girl was an experienced rider and it was the other's 1st time riding. It was a great experience for both. We followed a small creek that wound through several different... More

Taking a ride on a horse or a mule with McClain will be the highlight of your trip. McClain has a passion for the land and loves to share the beauty and the stories from this beautiful part of our country. He is confident and caring and guided us through the slot canyons which were so beautiful. We hope to... More

The mule ride with Hunter was one of the highlights of our trip! We rode on a pick up to Escalante corridor, got on to our mules and went riding for about 3 hours through slots and some amazing wilderness. Fabulous experience!

We (family of five) and our friends had a great time doing a half-day horseback ride to the Willis Creek slot canyon. Excellent guiding by Hunter, we always felt safe and in good hands. The ride was spectacular and a fantastic experience for all of us unexperienced riders.

We had planned for 2 days in Bryce, but found out 3/4 of a day was enough for us. We came across images of the local slot canyons, and had to see them. The chance to see them via an awesome and very personal (just our guide, my wife, myself, and 3 mules) tour was great!

Our family of four (kids 10 & 13) had a really good experience on our half-day ride with Mecham Outfitters. It was nice getting out of the park, away from the crowds and seeing different landscape as well. Plus, it was easy to get there. The slot canyons were beautiful! It was an authentic experience for sure. It was just... More
