Biking, Vernal, Utah, Recreation, Red Rock

Biking Near Vernal

Vernal's small town vibe is really a big playground for visiting nearby Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, the Uinta Mountains, and three state parks.

Vernal, Utah

Say "Vernal" to most Utahns and the word that most often comes to mind is "dinosaurs." Vernal is close to Dinosaur National Monument. Downtown Vernal offers the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum. Not into dinosaurs? No worries. Vernal is a gateway to Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. Stretching 90 miles, the reservoir is famous for water sports, trout fishing, and spectacular scenery. Boaters and water skiers shouldn't miss Steinaker and Red Fleet State Parks. You'll find plenty of territory to hike, bike, and raft all summer long. Winter offers miles of some of Utah's best snowmobile terrain. This area is also the southern and eastern gateway to the High Uintas Wilderness Area. Visit the official tourism office for Vernal and surrounding area www.visitdinosaurland.com

Family Fun Adventures
Become a Junior Scientist or a Peewee Paleo in the heart of Dinosaurland at the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum. Children ages eight to 12 can explore the museum, labeling bones and completing hands-on activities. Children ages seven and under can follow a scavenger hunt out into the garden, where 14 life-sized prehistoric models (including a T-Rex and a woolly mammoth) are displayed, (435) 789-3799, www.stateparks.utah.gov/parks/field-house.
