If you open a map of Utah, you'll want to get your feet on the ground! The large amount of public land in Utah holds tracts of spectacular, diverse, and remote wilderness. And where there are no roads, there are rivers, streams, canyons, mountain peaks, mesas, buttes, spires, arches and wilderness trails. Hiking Utah's extensive trail system and extraordinary backcountry is one of the simplest and most rewarding ways to explore the state. Our professional outfitters and guides can lead you to many spectacular trails, both on and off the map. You can choose any level of hiking you feel comfortable with, from introductory to advanced, and always with the scenery to take your breath away! For multi-day outings, you may want to choose a backpacking outfitters from the list. Many river and other adventure outfitters also sponsor hiking trips, so look around! Get ready to get out there!
