What majestic and beautiful canyons! It's early spring - we can only imagine how girgeous it will be when trees start to bloom.

Lots of hikes to do with the whole family. I carry my little guy and my husband carries our 3 year old. Each hike is beautiful! Our kids will be excited to hike again there soon.

Desperately wanted to see a moose in the wild - we did! Wonderful experience, easy to get to from SLC and many trails to hike.

Be careful though. Dogs are NOT aloud in this canyon, even if they are in your car. It is unlikely, but you could get a hefty fine for even bringing your furry friend on a car ride.

If you enjoy hiking, camping, spontaneous picnic lunches, skiing in the winter, or just being in the great out doors Big Cottonwood Canyon has it all. The road is paved and adequate with only one lane in each direction. It is medium steep with lots...More

Utah sometimes has snow up until June but this year who knows. I would check out Snowbird Resort’s weather before coming - they are the last resort to close down each year and if there is snow they will be open.
