Utah's excellent guides and outfitters can truly enhance your adventures. Guided hiking trips vary from half-day hiking clinics to multi-day backpacking expeditions. Specialty walking tours focus on ecology, history, geology, or archaeology. Many ranches statewide even provide the chance to do your wandering on horseback, for an hour, or a day, or several days. 

Utah has hundreds of miles of backcountry and trails. Some areas are accessible only to hardy backpackers, while others can be reached via off-highway vehicles or mountain bikes. Visitors should check with the administering agency about fire restrictions and other regulations, including off-highway vehicle restrictions, before heading into the backcountry.
