No matter where you live in Utah, there’s a trail for you and your family to explore! Hiking is a great way to have fun, be active, and make some memories!
In order to have the best experience possible, you’ll want to do a couple of key things:
#1 Pack snacks – hiking makes you hungry! Try these homemade granola bars from Eat Well Utah.
#2 Bring plenty of water! Keeping yourself hydrated will give you the energy you need to finish your hike feeling strong.
#3 Wear good athletic shoes with a sturdy grip.
#4 Look for cool creatures – like this butterfly!
#5 Collect rocks – try to find one special rock each time you go on a hike. Keep your rock collection to remind you of all the fun memories you’ve had with your family.
#6 Take pictures! Share your hiking experiences with us by tagging #kidscreate in your posts.
