Be transformed. 

Explore the Rocky Mountains at Sky Ranch Ute Trail this summer. Wilderness is a powerful tool for building community, developing character, and discovering inner resolve. Wilderness is also a place where walls are torn down, relationships are restored, and lives are changed. 

God calls us into the wilderness to transform us. 

Without the distractions of civilization, we find space to encounter Christ and see Him revealed in creation. Wilderness provides opportunities of physical challenge and stepping outside of our normal comfort zones.
