In the process, the larger, more erosion-resistant layer on top now provides some protection to the softer layer on which it rests, thereby lengthening its precarious life. While the centerpiece of this hike is Balanced Rock, don’t let the views of the La Sal Mountains in the southeast go unnoticed. The La Sals are Utah’s second-highest range, with its highest peak, Mount Peale, rising to 12,726 feet above sea level. The range’s name, meaning “salt,” was given by Spanish explorers, who may have doubted the existence of snowcapped desert peaks so far south.

But where are the guaranteed wow-producing hiking trails? Right here, in Utah’s five national parks. Within these pages you’ll find trail descriptions and precise directions for dozens of the best day hikes in what I think is the most beautiful, fascinating, and diverse topography in the world—Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Parks. This book’s title, 50 Best Short Hikes: Utah’s National Parks, has two operative words in the title: best and short. What you’re about to uncover represents the very best of the thousands of miles of hiking trails within Utah’s national parks.

You can’t outrun or swim in a flash flood. Avoid narrow canyons in rainstorms, and seek high ground. You can take a mobile phone with you, but on most of these hikes you will not have cell service. Thus, as with all hiking, it’s wise to let someone know where you are headed and when you expect to return. Hikers on the more remote trails described in this book might want to bring along a flashlight (if there’s any chance of being caught on the trail after dark); a map; a GPS unit, for fun as well as navigation; a whistle (for signaling); and a first-aid kit.
