Big Springs Hollow Hike

Alex is here to tell us about one of her favorite year round hikes with kids! Read on to see how she loves to hike during each season. Big Springs Hollow trail is a wonderful treasure that my good friend, Joey introduced me to a couple of years ago. It's a fantastic trail for little kids, even toddlers with a little hand holding, because there's no drop-off and the trail is mostly flat. While the whole trail is 4-5 miles, we typically hike to the meadow, which is a little over 1 mile. (See more below.) For the last few

The Little Gym | Orem

I don't know about you, but I find it so difficult getting my kids outside to burn off energy during the late Fall and Winter months! It's dark by 5pm! I mean, I could strap some flashlights to their heads and send them running off outside but that seems like a recipe for disaster! What's a mom to do with a house full of stir crazy kids?! Check out the classes at The Little Gym, that's what! I am so happy with the classes my kids are taking at the Little Gym in Orem, not only are they burning off

Fifth Water Hot Springs Hike

I've had this hike on my to-hike list for at least two years. Trying to find a time when my kids and I had pretty much all day to spend hiking and playing since Diamond Fork Canyon is about an hour away from where we live. Summer came and this year went and my boys started school. Then Utah started putting on quite a show with fall colors, so I took advantage of a Friday when my boys were off and we set out in the morning along with three other moms from our Hike it Baby family. The trailhead

Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan

This was our first visit to the Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan, and after going I think we're going to have to add it to our must do October activities! We went in the middle of the day on a Saturday and it wasn't overly busy that we were on top of people, but we did run in to some as we went through the maze. It was perfect for families, even little kids and strollers but I think it would be fun with a bunch of older kids or even for a date night (can I get a

Kuwahara Wholesale Pumpkin Patch

From the second we pulled up to Kuwahara pumpkin patch I could tell it was going to be a hit with my 3 year old, Liam. He was giddy the moment that he saw the blowup decorations outside each of the various pumpkin patches. This pumpkin patch offers lots for kiddos to love and many spots to snap some fun photos. First, we walked through the traditional, main pumpkin patch and checked out each of the covered, themed pumpkin patches. My kiddos loved the inflatable tunnel in the back of the Frankenstein’s Cemetery patch and I loved the hanging plants

Hee Haw Farms | Pumpkin Patch

Continuing our Pumpkin Patch round-up is Hee Haw Farms in Pleasant Grove! This 157-year old family run farm offers a genuine fall farm experience which is fun for the whole family! More than just a pumpkin patch, Hee Haw Farms has something for everyone! Corn box, bunny hutch, silo slide, corn cannons, corn maze, animal train plus hayrides and that is just a small list of all the fun activities. The farm also boosts lots of different varieties of animals, such as goats, cows, pigs, chickens, roosters, cats, bunnies and ponies! Many are located in the petting farm! You can

Pick your Own Apple Orchard in Pleasant Grove | Pleasant Grove Guernseys

Happy Fall! It's time to bust out the cozy sweaters, bake everything with cinnamon and start checking things off your fall bucket lists! One of the things that should be at the top of that list is, Apple Picking! As far as Fall family activities go, apple picking is my favorite! I have found to be a great resource when it comes to PYO (pick your own) farms throughout Utah. Fall is generally when the growing season is winding down so it's important to call the farms and see what is available for PYO. Knowing that apple picking was

Dripping Rock Trail

School may be in full swing and Pumpkin flavored everything has invaded our lives but it is still technically Summer! With temperatures in the high 80's it certainly still feels like summer! If you live in Utah Valley and are looking for a stress free way of cooling off after you pick the kids up from school, I'd recommend Dripping Rock Trail in Spanish Fork, Utah. Seriously one of my favorite spots in Utah Valley, so, you readers of The Salt Project are pretty special since i'm sharing all the details! Located in South East Spanish Fork just off of
