The Best Hikes In Utah For Kids


When you think of epic, bucket list hikes, ​something like Angel's Landing in Zion or Half Dome in Yosemite might come to mind. But these aren't exactly safe and kid-friendly. 

But there are plenty of hikes in Utah that aren't as dangerous or strenuous but still provide those epic views and bragging rights.

Whether it's hiking to waterfalls & wildflowers in northern Utah or slot canyons & arches in southern Utah, let us show you which kid-friendly hikes in Utah are worthy of adding to your bucket list!

Utah National Parks


Utah is perhaps best known worldwide for its national parks. Some states have none while we are lucky to have five just a short drive from home. Unfortunately with great popularity comes great expense - but it doesn't have to. We can show you the best places to stay and the best times to go to avoid the crowds and save money.

Zion, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Canyonlands are collectively known as The Mighty Five. Many people come to Utah and visit them all on a single trip. That's a great way to hit the highlights but we recommend hitting one or two at time to get the most out of them.

Marathons & Half-Marathons in Utah


If running a marathon or even a half-marathon is on your bucket list, then Utah is a great place to check that box. There are many incredibly scenic races with great support. From speedy downhill courses in the canyons or scenic red rocks races down south, you'll find something for you.
