Utah has more parks than major cities. You can escape West Jordan, Salt Lake City, West Valley City, Provo and Saint George, and enjoy vast open blue skies and bright stars by wandering into some of the great nature offered by Utah. With so many beautiful parks to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one to explore. Here are three of the best parks within the gorgeous landscape of Utah:
Zion National Park
Zion National Park features massive, captivating cliffs, canyons, plants and wildlife. Utah’s first national park has so many things to do that you will need to plan your visit ahead of time. More than 100 miles of trails cover deep valleys, narrow river canyons and towering Navajo sandstone. Zion National Park is heaven to those interested in photography, rock climbing, hiking and camping. It won’t be easy, but hiking up to the summit of Angel’s Landing gives visitors a spectacular view straight through the center of Zion.
Great Salt Lake State Park
Utah is known for its beautiful landscapes and the Great Salt Lake. This famous lake is gets its name from being two to seven times saltier than the ocean. Take in the great views of the salt lake and millions of migratory birds by boat or at one of the many public view points. With Antelope Island and Black Rock nearby, the Great Salt Lake State Park has at least a day’s worth of absorbing nature and activities.
Natural Bridges National Monument
Another photography, hiking and exploration dream, National Bridges National Monument delivers a unique experience while traveling in Utah. Natural bridges differ from arches as they are sculpted by water, while arches are sculpted by wind and ice. This national monument features three huge bridges: Kachina, Owachomo and Sipapu. Sipapu is not only the largest of the three bridges, but it is also a Hopi Nation word that refers to the portal through which the first ever people came into the world. Winding trails lead you to all three bridges, giving you both daring and relaxing opportunities during your visit.
