Utah visitors looking for Active & Adventure Travel are spoiled for choice
While many adventurers love to hike Utah, others have put their hearts on cycling. It’s hard to narrow down the state’s best bike trails, but top picks often include a 55-mile stretch of Utah’s famous “All-American Road, Scenic Byway 12” from Escalante to Boulder, the Ogden River Parkway, and roads through it Wasatch Mountains and, in southern Utah, the 70-kilometer Veyo Loop past Snow Canyon. For mountain bikers, it’s hard to hit Moab’s epic trails, from Slickrock to Porcupine Rim to Amasa Back.
Utah’s rafting scene is also very popular. Whitewater professionals prefer the Westwater and Cataract Gorges (Class IV-V) on the Colorado River, the Gates of Lodore and Desolation Canyon (Class III-IV) on the Green River on the Upper and Lower Sections (Class III) of the San Juan River. For beginners, there are shallow stretches of water on these rivers through otherworldly canyons such as Labyrinth Canyon in Canyonlands National Park.
For climbers, few destinations enjoy more than Utah, with world-class climbs across the state. Moab, Ogden, Logan, Salt Lake City, and St. George are known to rock climbers, and the greatest attraction of all, Zion National Park, is legendary.
With summer approaching, winter is always around the corner and winter visitors to Utah are spoiled for choice: skiing and snowboarding galore, as well as snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
Active and adventurous customers will find every sport and activity they have ever wanted in Utah – and undoubtedly some surprises too.
