Something profound and almost magical happens when you spend time in Utah's wild spaces. Forget about the commute, the deadlines, the hustle and bustle. This itinerary will take you to places rife with breathtaking views and a restorative silence in the open desert air.


Hike to Double O Arch

A beautiful and challenging hike winds across sand drifts then traverses sandstone fins before rewarding hikers with a intimate view of two stacked arches. Less visited than some of the park's most famous landmarks, Double O is nonetheless worth the effort.
Experience more of Arches.



Watch the Sunrise at Mesa Arch

Like a setting from a lavishly produced fantasy movie, the view of the sun cresting the horizon through the aperture makes an indelible image. Expect to enjoy the show with photographers from all over the world, all in a state of shared reverence.
Understand more about Canyonlands. 


Stargaze From Cathedral Valley

Follow a 60-mile scenic drive through this remote valley where the desert hillsides are painted a rainbow of colors. Watch the sun sink beneath the towering Temples of the Sun and Moon rock formations, then get ready to see the stars as you've never seen them before. Immerse yourself in Capitol Reef.



Stroll the Riggs Spring Loop Trail

Stay cool as you hike through forests of Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pines and Pinyon, with views up to the white and pink cliffs soaring above. This 9-mile backcountry loop is known for frequent wildlife sightings, so get your camera ready. Discover more of Bryce Canyon.


Explore Kolob Canyon

Accessed only from the less visited, secondary park entrance, the Kolob Canyon area boasts several hikes through narrow box canyons ribboned with clear creeks and festooned with hanging gardens. Whether you're looking for a half-day or a multiday hike, you're sure to find solitude and tranquility. Explore deeper into Zion Canyon.
