The native peoples that inhabited this land long before America was colonized recognized the power in Utah’s lands, as their ancestors do today. The Ancestral Puebloan Dwellings in Utah are among the oldest structures in America, and are surrounded by unmatched natural beauty. The 22 million acres of public lands, from the high alpine forests in Northern Utah to the red rock regions of Southern Utah have so much solace to offer, but it’s up to you to find it. Hike a trail that’s not on a top-ten list, camp at a site that doesn’t have a paved entrance, or rest atop a red rock perch that overlooks a network of canyons so large and deep they’re nearly impossible to comprehend.
Right now, it’s our shared responsibility to care for the small communities we visit. Recreate safely, follow all local health and safety guidelines and do what you can to support Utah’s communities.
