Summer is the perfect time to take the family up to the mountains and enjoy some time together in the great outdoors. Recently Wanderookie gave us 9 great ideas to cool off this summer and showed us some lakes, rivers, and splash pads. That’s one great thing about Utah. Not only do we have lakes and rivers, but we also have the beautiful mountains to escape into. And what’s more, there are even plenty of trails in the valley to use!
Here are some ideas of some great family-friendly hikes to explore:
1. Hike the G – Utah Valley
It’s steep but rewarding to get to the top.
2. Buffalo Peak: The Triple Threat Trail – Utah Valley
Enjoy a view of the lake, city, and mountain from this trail.
3. Ogden River Parkway – Ogden
This is a great trail to gauge a child’s interest and endurance in hikes.
Water, shade, logs, ladders, and slides … the kids will love it!
A short hike to unusual falls.
A shorter hike to a falls and a little area for the kids to wade in the water.
