Canyon Overlook Trail | 12 Utah Staycations

During our last visit to Zion, we used the FREE shuttle system so I didn't even know about the other side of Zion National Park. There is an awesome tunnel that is over a mile long that you can drive through. Right as you exit the tunnel, start searching for a parking spot. There is a small parking lot to the right, and parking along the road to the left. This overlook hike is basically a mini Angels Landing. It's a short hike, about 30 minutes, and the views are incredible. There are some steep cliffs so keep the littles
Things to do in Zion with Kids | 12 Utah Staycations harm Fri, 11/22/2019 - 13:26
Zion National Park has so many epic hikes. I mean, Angel's Landing, The Subway, The Narrows. The whole world knows about these hikes. While they are epic, they are too epic for some young kids, like mine. I've been to Zion National Park so many times I feel like I've hiked everything there is to hike with kids. This last visit to Zion National Park was a little tougher because SOOOO many of the kid-friendly trails were closed! Weeping Rock (closed indefinitely) & The Emerald Pool Trails were closed for maintenance. We made the best out of the situation and
Pine Creek Gorge Slot Canyon | 12 Utah Staycations harm Fri, 11/22/2019 - 12:21
If you find yourself at the Overlook Hike, then you are right where you need to be to find the Pine Creek trail. This trail is NOT clearly marked in any way. The trail head is located in the parking lot right as you exit the tunnel. There is a sign to follow the path under the road/bridge. You will be able to see somewhat of a trail. Follow that down into the slot canyon. Small children will need help down but I think they would have fun exploring the canyon. Once you are down, head to the right. The

Follow The Flag in North Ogden

* Edited Nov. 2020 Today we hiked the 5 miles to Cold Water Canyon to view the world's biggest American flag. This American flag was hung to honor the late Mayor of North Ogden, Major Brent Taylor, who died serving his country and to honor all those who have served/serving. If you are lucky, you might meet the guys behind Follow the Flag North Ogden. They were at the lookout and it was cool to hear the reason behind their cause. They hope the flag with Honor, Heal and inspire all. Veteran's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect

Art Nord Hiking Trail at Snowbasin Resort | Salt Project Hike Meet-Up

A few weeks ago we had a Hike Meet-Up with Tim from This is Ogden! We hiked the Art Nord Trail, a family-friendly hike just off of the old Snowbasin Road. Be sure to check out the trail maps and tips below. Thanks to all of you that came! We had quite a group. We had families, people who just happened to see our FB Hike Event and were visiting the state, people of all ages and skill levels. It was really fun to get together with a group that we might not have otherwise met. The Art Nord Trailhead

Hobb's Pond Hike in Layton

Hello NEW HIKE IN LAYTON! Best Part? It's right in our stomping grounds! Layton's new trail at Hobb's Pond is freaking amazing! It's about 2.4 miles and can be done in a loop. Half of it is a new dirt trail and the other half is the paved trail of Kays Creek. Stephanie and Locke were out exploring at Hobb's Pond on the Kays Creek Trail and happened upon this new trail! Naturally, they had to follow it. They could NOT believe it! The hike was SO awesome that they decided to do it again the next day with the

Car Graveyard Hike

One of our favorite hikes in the fall is the Car Graveyard Hike in Farmington. We go every fall because it's a little spooky with all the old crashed cars that have fallen off the canyon road above. Check out a video and more photos here. We have never been in the spring, so this year we went in April, as soon as the snow was melted. The gate was closed to the canyon road so we had to park at the bottom and walk a mile up to the trail head. When we got to the second river, the

Birdsong Trail

The other morning my friend asked if I wanted to hike/bike the Birdsong Trail in Ogden. I hadn't been on the trail for a number of years and was really thrown off when my friend said it's "mostly shaded." The Birdsong Trail I went on years ago didn't have much shade, so I was really curious. Little did I know there was another section right off Taylor street and it really was "mostly shaded!" It did start out in full sun for a hot minute at the top of the trailhead. Birdsong Trail is 1 mile one way. Birdsong is
