The Mighty 5®: Utah's National Parks

The top national parks in Utah – also known was “The Mighty 5®” – draw several million visitors from around the world each year to marvel at surreal scenery and unforgettable activities. A trip to The Mighty 5 means watching the sunrise over the towering depths of Canyonlands National Park, then watching the sunset through an impossibly delicate rock bow in Arches National Park. It means standing nose-to-nose with ancient petroglyphs in Capitol Reef National Park, then lying on your back as a beautiful meteor shower streaks across the Milky Way. It means gazing down at coral-hued rock hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, then gazing upward at the steep walls of slot canyon trails in Zion National Park. It means hiking, river rafting, biking, picnicking, walking, mule riding, exploring and stargazing. Explore different travel itineraries below and once you've visited all five of Utah’s top national parks, and immediately feel that almost irrepressible urge to return, be sure to join The Mighty 5® ambassador program.
