Travel With Care
Follow these adapted tips from the U.S. Forest Service to plan a fun and safe Utah outing:
Plan ahead. Review the websites and social media that offer information on local conditions. Visitors are also encouraged to reach out to local tourism contacts and land managers with any additional questions.
Respect the social distance of others. Everyone wants to safely enjoy public lands. Please make sure to stay at least six feet away from other visitors as recommend by the CDC. Wear face coverings in settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. To avoid crowding, select low-traffic locations and non-peak hours.
Stay home if you feel sick. Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit. Stay up-to-date on latest instruction from the Utah Coronavirus Task Force.
Support local. Find ways to support the local communities that surround these natural areas. Stock up with groceries locally, stop in an artisan shop or eat at a local restaurant.
- Travel responsibly and reduce impact. Familiarize yourself with the travel ethic we call Forever Mighty and learn how to do your part to protect and preserve.
