San Rafael Swell, Utah
The only thing better than taking a hike is taking a first-timer along. This Utah slot canyon makes a sweet intro.
PROTECTING LAND for the next generation. That’s what we’ve been doing in America for 150 years. And the best part of being a good steward is passing the torch. It’s pure joy—for everyone—and it can happen anywhere. But the power seems amplified in Little Wild Horse Canyon, which took eons to burrow its way into Utah’s redrock, and where the timeless and the temporary live in harmony. Enjoy this canyon as an out-andback or loop hike encompassing nearby Bell Canyon, accessible from Little Wild Horse trailhead. Info blm.gov/visit/little-wildhorse-trailhead
