This adventure filled tour of Utah’s national and state parks will have you hiking and walking some of America’s most epic trails and natural landscapes, proving firsthand that actively exploring these parks (including Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce and Zion) is the best way to experience their natural beauty.

  • Goblin Valley State Park: Goblin Valley State Park is a state park of Utah, in the United States. The park features thousands of hoodoos, referred to locally as goblins, which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles, some as tall as several yards.

  • Capitol Reef National Park: Free hiking to include Sulphur Creek, Cohab Canyon, Hickman Bridge, Rim Overlook. Capitol Reef National Park is less visited than the other Utah parks, which makes it perfect for hiking the variety of trails, through canyons or up to overlooks. We are also back tomorrow morning so you can choose different trails each day. To finish your day you have the chance to enjoy a Rime Side dinner.

  • Bryce Canyon National Park: Pink, orange and rusty-red limestone spires, known as hoodoos,  rise up from the desert floor at Bryce Canyon, home to the largest collection of these spires in the world.

  • Kanab: Time to climb in the Coral Pink sand dunes, and to be a kid again. This is the place to take your boots off and just scramble around on the curiously colored sand.
