We provide our guests with top of the line backpacking and hiking gear, which means you are camping - sleeping in tents and sleeping bags on the ground. Expect little to no amenities - having running water may be your only luxury. The Ritz we ain't, but the experience will have you trekking through some of the most beautiful places in the US with your guide. Oh - and our food is NOT what you would expect on a camping trip. We provide quality meals prepared by your experienced and certified guide in the middle of the wilderness - the best seat in the house! « less

Thank you Joe Keyser for a great trip to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite, Jim was very patient and encouraging. The meals he prepared were most appreciated.

We recently returned from a three-day/two-night guided backpack trip to Havasu Falls. It was me, my wife and our 14-year old son, and we all agree it was one of the best trips we have ever had. Just Roughin' It had everything extremely well prepared - we traveled from Ohio and did not have to bring anything of significance with... More

The trip was fantastic, of course the Canyon itself needs no accolads and pictures are useless. a trip of this magnitude and difficulty can only be accomplished with the help of a good support staff. Just Roughin it has that from the dirvers to the guide they are top notch. Pat and Tyler our two drivers were polite, funny and... More

Difficult to articulate what an amazing trip this was -- more than a trip, it was a life experience for almost six months including all the preparation, training, gear checks, packing, repacking, planning, worrying, and finally the trip itself. Our guide, Joseph Tumidalsky, literally MADE the trip. He timed our hikes perfectly to take advantage of the coolest part of... More

Just Roughin' It Company is fantastic and it always a pleasure to business with them. I have utilized their guide services four times now. My hikes included the following: South Kaibab/Bright Angel, Hermit Trail, New Hance/ Grandview and South Kaibab/Cremation Canyon/Bright Angel. I could manage a hike by myself, but enjoy not having to plan, pack, and get those permits... More

Amazing trip! We just returned from a 4 day, 33 mile backpacking trip arranged through Just Roughin It. Our guide Ken and JRI made the trip a memorable one! Ken was patient, motivating and took care of our every need. The hike down was tough but Ken motivated us through it. The side hikes to Ribbon Falls and Plateau Point... More

We just returned from an extraordinary trip to the Grand Canyon with Just Roughin' It. The route, the views, the arrangements, equipment, communication, etc were all perfect. This is a strenuous hike, so be prepared. Our guide, Jayci was wonderful in every way possible. Plus, he makes some great cowboy coffee (and that review comes from a Seattleite!) We will... More

We really had no expectations when we booked this trip. I had been trying to book a trip with Just Roughin' It for years and it finally happened. When Ken picked us up we were immediately at ease just by his very confident demeanor and smiling face. Our group was just fantastic. The trip was beautiful start to finish and... More
