We have not yet traveled to Utah, and when we do, I wanted to have access to this list of kid-friendly hiking trails in each of five national parks there: Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Arches National Park. I’m not much of an adventure traveler so when I find lists like this, I just have to share them with you! As you can see, she’s very selective about her inclusions:
I use two criteria for determining whether a hike is family-friendly. First, the hike must be easy enough for a preschooler to walk on his own. My five-year-old has walked nearly all of these trails in the past two years. Second, the hike must be worthwhile for everyone in the family. If I’m going to spend the time and money to travel to a national park, I want to see what makes it special.
Knowing that her criteria fits my own, I just may have to change my tune and give hiking a try… provided I stick to this list! If you are planning a visit to any of the national parks in Utah, I highly recommend checking out Allison’s list of trails, and gorgeous photos before you go!
