Public lands and coronavirus

We’d like to encourage our members, supporters, and all public land lovers to stay safe and avoid non-essential travel at this time.

Many of the hikes and destinations featured on the Colorado Plateau Explorer are located in remote areas or near rural communities with limited healthcare resources. We hope you'll use the Colorado Plateau Explorer to plan your trip for the future. These magnificent lands will be here waiting for you then.
