Great winter getaway
Feb 2020
Not sure if I want the secret to get out but this place is fantastic. Easy walk, ski, or snowmachine in to this great location in the Abajo mountains. The place is fully equipped, the water bottle holder in the loft sleeping area were a nice touch. We will be back!

Tiny Home in the Abajos
Jan 2020
I found the Blue Mountains Tiny Home hut trip experience to be a low key way to get my hut trip fix and sharing it with others. A fix without the logistic hassles of the 10th Mountain Division hut system, a short drive from our home at the south end of Moab, and easier access than the La Sal winter trailhead with its lower mileage but dicier roads and nearly as long drive.

Consider the Tiny Home option a good one if you make your way to the Moab area, and if you are a couple or two, and want an easily accessible hut trip that also offers some excellent winter delights.

Roam If You Want To.
Jan 2020
Surrounded by majestic Ponderosa Pine; sailing upon a one-track trail and the breeze whispers into ears a blessed silence. Welcome to mountain biking in the Abajo Mountains with Roam Industries. Opening its doors July 2018, owners Dustin and Natalie Randall, enjoy the great outdoors of San Juan County. They wanted to bring mountain biking, hiking and winter sports to visitors, and locals, of this vast area.

When it comes to mountain biking, Roam Industries became the organizers and hosts of the Abajo Enduro. A yearly mountain biking fest which has grown to a 2-day, 3-State event, and has sold out the past two years. What started out, as a handful of friends, to ride and have friendly competition, is now a full on event, maximum participation of 50 riders!

Mountain biking, as well as hiking and climbing, tours are offered during the spring to fall months. Tours are initially 1-3 days of exploring various sections of San Juan County. Climbing is mainly in the Indian Creek Valley, or what is now part of the Bears Ears National Monument.

Roam Industries offers the service of a mobile tiny home; sleeping 7 and room for supplies; it is camping with the comfort of home. Currently the tiny home is up at Buckboard National Forest Campground. Sports of shoe shoeing and cross country skiing are a major draw during the winter months. Natalie Randall helped develop the trails that extend from the Dalton Springs and Buckboard campgrounds. Through her grant writing, Monticello has been able to expand other trails as well for biking and walking. A hut system, throughout San Juan County, is now in the works.

Do not think cross country skiing is your sport of choice? Dustin Randall states, “It takes about one season to learn, and become proficient, on the skis. After that though, you will love it!”

Another benefit of visiting Roam Industries is their self-serve snack bar and relaxed seating section. Delicious scones of Lemon Rosemary, Pumpkin, Coconut, Ginger Apricot and more are the creations of home baker, Hannah Plemons. Crisp around the edges, tender and fluffy inside, the fruity to savory concoctions are pleasing to the taste buds. Along with coffees, teas, water, the scones are an indulgent start to the day’s event, or a relaxing finish. Hannah’s scones are available Monday and Wednesday at 1pm, and they are gone in the blink of an eye!

While Roam Industries did have some success with a connection with Airbnb, it is mainly word of mouth that sustains this business. Repeat customers and great reviews feed the trickle down effects to the City of Monticello. Hotels, restaurants, and shops benefit from the influx of visitors, their families that come along, and the friends that decide to have their own Roam adventures. What better way is there, for economic sustainability, and development, then to have local businesses holding hands, with each other, in camaraderie?

Current winter hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1pm-6pm. Once spring’s warm fingers begin to caress the land, more adventurous opportunities will become available. With the summer months, family reunions are always looking for activities; how about a group tour with Roam Industries?

Bike packing Bears Ears
Jul 2019 • Couples
Roam Industry helped make my husband’s summer cycling dream come true! We bike camped through the Blue Mountains, riding into Bears Ears. I was a little nervous since I’m not as experienced a cyclist as my husband, but Dustin and Natalie took us step by step through what to expect. They designed a custom trip, recommending key water sources and suggested campsites, and outfitted us with the sweetest rides, fully rigged with everything we needed, including ultra-light sleeping and cooking kits. The landscape was spectacular. Bike packing just might be the coolest way to see the remote beauty of San Juan County.

Breathtaking!
Jul 2016 • Family
The trip I booked with Roam was literally "breathtaking" in multiple ways. First the scenery is incredible, we were very remote and didn't see another person on our entire trip. Second, our guide Dustin, pushed us hard to get to our campsites each day. This was very "breathtaking" as we did a lot of vertical feet on our Bike Packing trip. but we wouldn't have it any other way.
Also, our group consisted of young men between 14-16 along with multiple adults. We used this as a high adventure camp for scouting. It was a great experience all around, and our boys still rank it as their favorite experience in boy scouts.

These guys rock! If you're looking for some southern utah adventures but don't wanna deal with the crowds in Moab, drive down to Monticello and let Dustin and Natalie either take you out or point you in the right direction.

Awesome!!!
Jan 2017 • Family
Roam Industry has taken our family on numerous trips. From cross country skiing, to biking and climbing they know the best places to play whatever your skill level. Each trip has been well organized, and Dustin and Natalie take the time to make sure you have what you need for an amazing trip. Our first trip was a small day trip biking and climbing with our 12 year old son last summer. We took their suggestion of back country skiing in the Abajos in January and loved it! If you're in the Moab/Monticello area it's worth taking a day or two to explore with Roam, they know the area inside and out.

Amazing Trip
Jul 2016 • Family
I have used Roam Industries several times to plan and guide my trips. They are thorough in their planning and very knowledgeable of the area and the proper gear needed for several different types of excursions. They've helped me on a variety of trips including climbing, biking, backpacking, bike packing, and skiing. I love to support local small businesses like these. They are down to earth and were flexible especially when I showed up with some ruckus teenagers that were ill-equipped for the trip. Dustin and Natalie are some of the coolest people you'll meet and I plan on going on more trips with them for sure. Highly recommended.
