We love hiking! We hike often all throughout the year, and have found so many great trails! There is just something special about being together as a family exploring the outdoors, and then arriving at a beautiful destination. It is a wonderful adventure for our family.

Utah has so many hikes. Thousands of different trails. We share all of the hikes that we have hiked as family, and give all the details here that you’ll need as you head out on the trail. How long, how hard, fees required, and more.
