- Why Chose a hiking program to lose weight??
There are many reasons; but for starters: hiking is a great workout of natural interval training that not only burns fat, but helps you build muscle in every major muscle group. When combining our structured environment of diet and exercise with professional guides trained in CPR and First-Aid, your weight loss goals become much more attainable. We use the latest equipment available, and when you check-in we measure your body inches, weight, BMI, body fat %, muscle %, RMR (resting metabolic rate) and visceral fat. We measure it again at the end of your stay.
The best reason to come to Desert Cliffs Hiking Spa is because; you can go to a gym to work-out in just about any part of the world, but lose weight, or become more fit by enjoying ”Utah’s Dixie”. Mild winters make it ideal for hiking year-round. Hike in an environment that will push you beyond what you even thought was possible!

- Worried about the heat of the summer??
Discover Southern Utah’s BEST KEPT SECRET! We take our guests on beautiful hikes that the “others spas” never go. No need to worry – we are open year-round and yes it does get very hot in the St. George, Utah area during the summer months, but we take you on hikes early in the morning before it gets hot, and we take you to hiking trails in higher elevations where the temperature is much, much cooler. Many of the hikes that we go on in the summer are not even available for most of the year because of snow and closures. It does take a little longer to get there, but the hikes are well worth it!
