Paul Bunyan’s Woodpile In Utah Is The Stuff Of Legends, And You Can Hike To It

The legend of Paul Bunyan has been circulating around North America since the 1800s. The story goes that he’s a huge lumberjack who stands at least eight feet tall, and is always accompanied by his faithful companion, Babe the Blue Ox. Paul and Babe are friendly, hard-working characters who were the heroes of turn-of-the-century loggers in the thick forests of the U.S. and Canada.

There are some unique rock formations here in Utah that call to mind Paul Bunyan, and you can take a short hike to see them (and get an amazing valley view at the same time!)

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
