National Park to Visit in Utah
Best hiking trails in Utah
With some of the best national and state parks in the country, it is only natural that Utah also has some of the best hiking trails in the country. Here are some of our favorite hiking trails in the state.
Angels Landing Trail
Located in Zion National Park, Angels Landing Trail is surely one of the United State’s classic hikes. While the hike is under 5 miles long, it is not for the faint of heart. On your journey to Angels Landing, you will hike up steep switchbacks and up a narrow path with steep drops on either side. Be sure to use the chains for balance! Once you get to the top you will be rewarded with views of the valley unlike any that you have ever seen making this hike well worth it.
Delicate Arch Trail
Delicate Arch Trail is found in Arches National Park and is likely the most iconic hike in the park. This 3.2 mile trail will take you to see the famed Delicate Arch which you have probably seen in plenty of pictures, movies, and on the Utah license plate! There are over 2,000 other arches in Arches National Park, but Delicate Arch is the largest free-standing arch in the park, and you definitely do not want to miss it.
Navajo Loop and Queen’s Garden Trail
Heading over to Bryce Canyon National Park, the Navajo Loop and Queen’s Garden Trail is a must-see. Just under 3 miles long, this trail will take you to Sunset Point, then lead you down into the canyon below where you will wander through these incredible rock formations and tunnels. On the other side, you will have a steep ascent back to Sunrise Point, and from there, it’s a flat walk back to the starting point.
