Boulder Mail Trail — Trail Run
w/ Matt Graham
What to expect:
Bring your huaraches or running shoes and join Matt Graham on a guided fun run. This historic route — located just outside of Boulder, Utah — was once used to transport mail via Pack mule from the town of Escalante to Boulder, in South Central Utah – within Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
The historic cross-country route follows some of the most amazing slick rock pools and canyons in all of southern Utah. It is a 19-mile rugged route traveling up and down over sand and slick rock terrain. There is options for a mid day swim and lunch in one of the many pools or creeks with a short discussion on survival skills, then we will continue our run to the town of Escalante.
To be qualified for this run you must have run a marathon in under 4 Hours.
Price: $95 per person

Matt Graham has been teaching primitive-living skills for about 20 years. After moving to the Sierra mountain range at age 17, he began to climb, mountain run and learn Native American living skills from the Miwok, Paiute and others. At that time, Matt would take long runs into the backcountry with a few items tied around his waist, forage for food and build shelters. Afterwards, Matt moved to the Grand Canyon during a Walkabout, ran the Pacific Crest Trail through California, then peddled his bicycle to Utah. There he became immersed in the Hunter Gatherer lifestyle that people had once lived: connected with the earth & living with the land. After sharing his knowledge with a TV world, he is back in his home country of Utah offering hands on instruction with valuable skills that can deepen your connection to your roots and this planet.
