Unique opportunity to learn about Cedar Mesa and Comb Ridge “Deep History”


Learn about the Cedar Mesa and Comb Ridge area and its fascinating history that spans thousands of years. Explore the natural beauty of the landscape and side canyons, and learn about geology, desert ecology, and more during two days and two nights of guided tours. Trip begins and ends in Bluff, Utah.

The trip is based at Recapture Lodge in Bluff, Utah, with two night’s stay. Begins with evening seminar, followed by two days of field outings, mostly by van, with stops for hikes (2-3 miles round trip).  Locations will include familiar and lesser known historical and archaeological sites in Butler and Comb Washes, Cedar Mesa side canyons, a spectacular drive along the Comb itself, and walking a portion of Posey’s Trail. In true CFI naturalist style, guides overview geography, observe plants, discuss native uses, and note anything else of interest!

Our trip group is kept small (minimum 4 and maximum 8 participants).

Trip fee includes two night’s lodging (double occupancy) and meals beginning with breakfast day 1  through lunch last day, plus permit fees and transportation. If you wish to reserve a single room, please do so in advance with a $60 single supplement. A part of your fee helps to underwrite our educational school programs.
