About the location

Utah has something that everyone can enjoy. It has three and a half distinct geographic regions, five national parks, five national historic sites, forty-five state parks, twelve national monuments and many more interesting things to see everywhere you look. Even though Utah is landlocked it still has some of the most beautiful recreation areas around.

Guide Highlights

Learn about the best hikes in Utah from an experienced adventurer who has hiked all over the world from Africa to New Zealand.

I have shared my vast knowledge of the popular (and less traveled) hikes in Utah including which ones would be worth your time.

Discover scenic byways, see historical sites, conquer a mountain on a UTV, take a spin on a jet ski, and cool off at the beach.

There is something for everyone in Utah and I have curated lists of many of the best things to do during your trip.

Guide Summary

In this guide I will lay out the perfect round trip road-trip from Las Vegas to all five national parks in Utah, a short detour in Arizona, and other beautiful stops along the way (including a couple of beaches)! Three of my friends and I took this exact road-trip last July over the course of ten days and we didn't have time to take a day off because there was so much to do. The itinerary is laid out in a way that maximizes the time spent at each point of interest and minimizes the distance between each location.
