Example text

Bryce Canyon has groomed cross-country ski trails, and wildlife viewing in Zion is exceptional. STAYING SAFE Every route in this book is safe in the sense that it is a designated public trail within a national park. Most of the hikes in this book are considered front-country trails as opposed to remote backcountry trails, and as such the trails are well maintained, regularly patrolled and hiked by park rangers, and heavily used by visitors who come to Utah’s national parks. Each year millions of people find fun, rewarding, healthy, and life-transforming experiences while hiking in national parks.

ROUTE As you depart the trailhead parking area on a wide, groomed path heading south, the first attraction is Wolfe Ranch, on your left. The weathered timbers of the old cabin are still sturdy and stand as a tribute to the tenacity and a reminder of the hardship of those who scratched out an existence in this harsh desert climate. Wolfe Ranch, settled in 1888 and abandoned in 1910, was the only homestead ever established in what is now Arches National Park. As you cross a sturdy metal bridge over Salt Wash, which at this point is a perennial alkaline trickle near the cabin, you’ll wonder how or why anyone would have chosen a life in this remote outpost.
