Utah is an outdoor playground for hikers and cyclists. With over 65% of the state dedicated to national parks and monuments, few North American destinations offer better access to stunning wilderness than Utah.

Utah is home to five of the wildest, rugged, most dramatic, and awe-inspiring national parks found anywhere in the USA; Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands. These parks are some of the most photographed and featured images of the American sandstone wilderness and home to exceptional hiking opportunities for hikers of all abilities.

While images of Utah’s glowing sandstone rocks at sunset abound don’t be fooled, the diversity of landscapes will surprise you. Bryce Canyon is an alpine forest where there are as many trees above its remarkable moonscape as there are red rocks, while Zion National Park is home to hanging gardens, tiny grottoes, and meadows of mesa-top wildflowers.

With so much natural beauty and public land it stands to reason that there’s no shortage of hiking trails, as this truly is the best way to soak in these ancient landscapes. Our team are also working on cycling experiences as well, so stay tuned for these exciting new travel ideas.
