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.

Kanab Dinosaur Tracks

There are some really nice dinosaur tracks just north of Kanab. A short, but steep hike is required to visit the Kanab Dinosaur Tracks, but they are worth it. We counted over a dozen tracks along the ridge, and most were easy to distinguish and fairly obvious. This hike only runs…
