Show synopsis Utah is the favorite destination for hikers seeking smaller crowds and more natural attractions. Especially in the spring and fall, Utah's red rock deserts and the alpine splendor of the High Uintas mountains offer breathtaking scenery. With the comprehensive coverage readers have come to expect from Foghorn's Outdoors series, Utah Hiking is one of the most complete guides to hiking in Utah ever published. The book covers the complete range of destinations throughout the state, from trails near well-known Zion National Park to lesser visited Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service lands to popular state parks such as Wasatch Mountain, Palisade, Millsite, and Green River. It also includes trails in the proposed Red Rock Wilderness Area. Each trail is numbered for easy location on a detailed map of the area. Trail notes for each hike are supplemented with information on its length and duration, location of its trail head, directions to reach it, permits and regulations regarding its use, where to get maps, and who to contact for more information. With the same simple-to-use cross referencing and extensive indexing found in all Foghorn guides, Utah Hiking leads both beginning and experienced trekkers to the trails that match their hiking skills and fulfill their desire for natural recreation and solitude.
