Experience nature on four wheels at the San Juan ATV Safari

Join a three-day adventure that will leave you breathless as you travel by ATV from the top of the Blue Mountains in the center of Utah’s Canyon Country to the depths of the canyons. The San Juan ATV Safari event is from Wednesday, September 12 to Saturday, September 15 in Blanding, Utah.

This annual extravaganza gives riders the opportunity to pick from 18 trails, making each participant’s safari experience unique. Trails vary in mileage, difficulty and location. Each rider will choose three trails, one per day of the safari event.

All of the trails have exciting sights and different environments within the county that most don’t realize exist. From towering red rocks to alpine forests, and from creeks in the mountains to arches and canyons, riders won’t want to miss the fun no matter the age, experience level or trail-type.

Riding one trail each day of the event, groups of riders are led by three experienced, ATV guides who are familiar with the trails and sights, and most of whom are volunteers and long-time residents of San Juan County. Starting at 8 a.m., riders and their guides will start the excursion in Blanding and Monticello and return to the town at the end of the day. Trail rides last most of the day and riders should bring their own lunch and water.

On the last day of the event, September 15th, a closing banquet with entertainment will be held at the Utah State University (USU) campus in the Arts and Events building. Those interested in attending the banquet do not have to participate in the ATV rides to attend, but still need to register for the banquet online.

Pricing for the ATV Safari event is $125 per rider, $200 per couple (rider and passenger) and $300 per family or group of four. The safari event will accept registrations until all 350 spots are filled. Registration for the trails are also limited, so sign up soon to get the trail you want!
