Hiking
House on Fire Pick any canyon and just start walking. That's our motto for those who want to hike our back-country and have the opportunity of also finding historic rock art and structures from the bygone area of ancient Native Americans. Experts say that there were 150,000 to 200,000 people living within San Juan County just 800 years ago. Today there are just 14,000, so the remnants of this lost civilization are found literally everywhere.

When you add the significant scenic attractions and the diverse wildlife to your hiking experience, then you are bound to walk away from your hiking adventure quite convinced that Utah's Canyon Country is one of the most incredible hiking destinations in America.

Use this web-site and our maps to begin planning the areas where you would like to hike.
