Looking for a quick go-to list when it comes to the top adventure destinations in Utah? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there too. We’ve compiled a list of the top five most popular summer adventures that Utah has to offer. Trust us, you don’t want to pass these ones up!

 

 

1. Hike to Angels Landing in Zion National Park   

The view from Angels Landing will take your breath away; if you didn't lose it on the way up the 440m climb from the floor of Zion Canyon. The strenuous hike is not for those afraid of heights. The final stretch is a narrow spine of rock lined with chains at hand level for hikers to hold while trying not to look down the nearly 30m drop on either side of their feet. The view, as you may guess, is worth the effort. Once on top, hikers quickly understand how Angels Landing earned its name.

 

 

 

2. Astronomy at Bryce Canyon National Park

How many stars can you see from your backyard? Maybe a hundred? The 'Dark' Rangers of Bryce Canyon are proud to report that on clear and moonless nights roughly 7,500 stars can be seen from Utah's highest elevation national park. The annual Bryce Canyon Astronomy festival is popular, drawing astronomy experts and galaxy geeks from across the globe.





 

3. Rafting Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park

When it comes to epic white-water adventures across the world, few compare with the daunting, but highly rated, Cataract Canyon stretch of the Colorado river. Outfitters and private groups typically take five days to float the 100 miles of river through Canyonlands and into Glen Canyon national recreation area. Whether it is high water – anything more than 30,000 cubic-feet per second – or late in the summer with low flows, rapids like Satan's Gut and Big Drops I, II and III pose a problem for the best captains. Camping along the river is part of the unique desert experience which also includes hiking to petroglyphs and dwellings created by the ancient peoples of the south-west.

 

 

4. Hiking the Narrows – Zions National Park

The Narrows in Zion National Park, is a section of canyon on the North Fork of the Virgin River. The Narrows is one of the most unusual hikes on the Colorado Plateau. Hiking is done largely in the river as, for a third of the route, the river runs canyon wall to canyon wall. The walls are vertical and sheer, and often red in color. Hiking the Narrows was rated # 5 in the National Geographic ranking of America's Best 100 Adventures.






5. Hell’s Revenge – Moab, Utah

Looking for some OHV and off-roading fun? You can’t beat Hell’s Revenge in Moab, Utah. And the name pretty much sums it all up. Yes, whatever you’re imagining is probably true. It's not a technically challenging trail if you take bypasses, but there are no bypasses around some areas that are truly terrifying. Dump Bump, Devil’s Driveway, Hell’s Gate, Black Hole and Tip-Over Challenge are just some of the terrifying and exhilarating obstacles that are part of this trail. Let’s just say this, expect to slide around a lot, expect to be scared and expect to have a whole lot of fun.





So there you have it! A quick overview of some of the best that Utah has to offer. So get out your calendar, wrangle up some friends, book a road trip or buy a plane ticket and plan a summer adventure in Utah. We promise, it’ll be a trip you never forget!
