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.

Catstair Canyon Car Stacks

We found a really unique hike just east of Kanab that is worth a try. The Catstair Canyon Car Stacks hike is just a mile roundtrip, but can be extended depending how far you choose to go in the canyon. The trail is interesting, and sometimes challenging. We enjoyed both the…


The Nautilus Hike | Kanab

Just outside of Kanab is a short hike to an interesting geological feature that has been dubbed "The Nautilus." A nautilus is a mollusk with a perfectly spiral shell, and this land feature was named after the sea creature. The hike ends at a white twisted rock formation that will hopefully…
