52 Hikes in Utah

We had several people tell us about the 52 Hike Challenge. We’ve never counted our hikes before, but I don’t think we generally get to 52 in a year, especially since we don’t really hike in the winter. But we decided we were up for the challenge. We wanted to list the family friendly hikes that we found in Utah. We had to do a few hikes in winter in order to make it, but most hikes were done from March-November. Just click each link to see our full post about each hike.
