35 Northern Utah Hikes So Easy You should Take Your Grandma
We've teamed up with Utah's Adventure Family to make one #UTAWESOME list!
*****When we originally wrote this post, we were thinking more of hikes your KIDS grandmas could do. We've updated the list to include notes "more difficult." Some of them are more difficult because they are pretty steep. But all of the hikes were done with young children either walking or riding on our backs. Everyone is at different levels of fitness, so please be sure to read each post to make sure it's for you and your family.
While this shows winter snowshoeing, I saw many people of all ages snowshoeing on this trail.
Most are gravel or dirt trails. We've pushed strollers through some of the paths too.
The switchbacks can be tough, but really it can be done under 30 minutes to get to the falls! We've hiked with kids 2-9 on this. Some walked, some were carried.
This hike is long and steep but we hiked the trail with two children on our backs.
This hike is steep. We didn't know about the service road, so we hiked extra. We've hiked this twice with kids ranging from 2-9 and adults from 20-50 yrs. To read about the hike and how to get to the service road read Utah's Adventure Family.

Steep, but paved the whole way. Be sure to click on the link for Brittney's experience with her young kids.
