Summer Treks

Gulch expeditions are an opportunity to immerse you in the majestic land and cultural heritage of the American Southwest. At The Gulch, we take you on world-class backpacking and hiking excursions, but our expeditions are much more than that— we use our hands to explore Southwestern art, science, farming, and archaeology, and we take time to learn from the Native American traditions of the Navajo, Zuni, and Acoma people.
