Utah is filled with slot canyons, desert terrain, forests, natural arches, high mountain lakes, sand dunes, red rock, paved overlooks, waterfalls, and mountain tops as high as 13,500 feet. There is something for explorers of all types and capabilities, from trail walks of varying lengths and difficulties, to multi-day backpacking experiences. Any destination you choose, any season, there will be striking landscapes and memories that will last a lifetime.
