“Writing hiking books is a labor of love,” says Greg Witt, author of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City. But he notes that one the most enjoyable benefits of writing the book was the number of surprise wildlife encounters on the trail. “When you hit the trail early in the morning and hike during the week when fewer people are on the trail, you have a much greater chance of seeing an amazing variety of wildlife.”

As Greg was hiking trails in the Wasatch Mountains he saw deer and moose on a regular basis. “A 1400-pound moose can be threatening,” he said. “Coming around the corner and seeing a moose in the middle of the trail can be startling and may even be reason to turn around, unless the moose gets out of the way.”

He also saw mountain goats, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, bison, beaver, fox, porcupine and bison, in addition to a number of smaller critters. “Rattlesnakes frequently bask in the sun on mountain trails, and I’ve nearly stepped on a few of them.”

In addition to being a busy author, Greg Witt is also an adventure guide in the Alps and in Utah. He does over 40 media appearances and speaking engagements annually.

50 Best Short Hikes in Utah's National Parks, 2nd edition
Greg Witt


Utah’s five national parks—Arches, Bryce, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion—hold some of the most awe-inspiring geology on the planet. Each park offers visitors the dramatic scenery that invites exploration and discovery.

In 50 Best Short Hikes in Utah’s National Parks, veteran hiking guide Greg Witt shares the best routes in each park, hikes that are both “must see” and accessible. Park visitors who are short on time will find this book to be the ideal traveling companion, because it quickly helps readers identify the hikes and sights that will make the best use of their time and provide maximum enjoyment.

Each hike in the book includes distances, highlights, area maps, and easy-to-follow trailhead directions to make hike selection fast and efficient. Once on the trail, the detailed maps, route description, and interpretive details insure that hikers get the most out of their trip.

Even avid hikers and experienced desert explorers will find new insights and discoveries as Witt’s interesting and approachable style details the geologic forces that created this landscape. He brings to life the human history—prehistoric cliff-dwellers, native tribes, ranchers, farmers, loggers, miners, and outlaws—that adds to the color of the Colorado Plateau where these five parks are set.
