Utah National Parks Road Trip A Guide to Utah’s Mighty 5


Having traveled extensively through Utah, I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favorite regions in the 50 United States.

A Utah National Parks road trip – one of the great American road trips, is the best way to explore its biggest attractions – Utah’s Mighty 5.

Zion National Park

Known for its tall dramatic canyons with steep walls, epic viewpoints overlooking the canyon, and some adventurous and unique hikes.

Bryce Canyon National Park

The unique geography of the amphitheater allows for several great viewpoints overlooking the hoodoos. There are also incredible hikes down in and among these otherworldly rock formations.

Capitol Reef National Park

A remote park section with incredible, freestanding, steep monolith rocks. The park is long and skinny – 60 miles long north-south, but only 6 miles across in some places.

Canyonlands National Park

Here, you can admire the massive mesas and dramatic views of canyons carved by the Colorado and Green Rivers.

Arches National Park

There are over 2,000 arches in the park. Visitors will see a fraction of these as they explore the incredible viewpoints and hiking trails in Arches.
