Hana is my favorite part of the island

When we go to Maui, Hana is my favorite place. I always wish we planned more time to spend there. I can't recommend it enough.

Hands down doll place

Go during sunrise, you won't regret it. One of the coolest things we saw on the whole island. Make sure you show up early cause it gets crowded and the sunrise is best about an hour before sunrise I thought.

Debated doing it glad we did

We really debated doing this because it was a long drive and you have to get up super early. I am so glad we did. It was one of the coolest things we saw on Maui. The sunrise is spectacular. I would recommend showing up at least an hour before sunrise. There are limited parking spots at the top and if you are late they shut it down and you will have to watch from lower lots. In addition I thought the colors for sunrise were best about an hour before sunrise. There are a ton of people so showing up early also helps to get the best spots.

waterfall can be seen from road

The waterfall can be seen from the road but the hike down to the waterfall was pretty fun. The hike is very short but I really enjoyed hiking under the bridge. If the hike is too difficult for everyone in your group they can still enjoy the waterfall from the road and the hike is so short they don't have to wait long.

Fun spot, short hike

This is a fun place to stop on the road to Hana. It can get crowded.

Wonderful waterfall!

When we went on a Saturday it was very crowded. Otherwise it is a gorgeous waterfall.

Fun hike

Fun hike, I did it as a day hike with my dog and it was pretty fun. There were a few water crossings but I didn't need to get my feet wet. There is a lot of mud along the trail so bring towels or blankets to keep the mud out of your car.

I love the Tetons

The Tetons are my favorite mountains. They are so pretty. This hike is great because you get wonderful views of the Tetons the whole way. As a whole the hike is just okay. The waterfall and overlooks are pretty but there are better hikes in the area.

Best hike in Zion

The exposure is awesome and it makes for a great adventure. I take anyone visiting the area here. It can get crowded especially on weekends and during other peak times. If you are afraid of heights you might not make it.

Fun short hike especially in the fall.

This is a fun place to visit in the fall. The hike is all uphill to the lake so its also a great workout but short enough that families can enjoy it as well.

Awesome Photogenic Arch

This arch is very photogenic and is not nearly as popular as other arches. It is a little difficult to find since there is no trail to the arch but with a GPS it wasn't bad. The hike was short and the arch was beautiful. Don't forget to see the nearby sunrise arch while you are in the area.

A wonderful canyon!

It has been called one of the most deadly hikes in the world. Every turn the canyon took I had to snap another photo. I have never been in any canyon that match the magnitude of Buckskin. While in the canyon we saw an owl that tried to land on my fathers backpack but missed and instead landed into some water. We also saw a baby rattlesnake. Before we started it rained really hard and when we entered the canyon there was a small river moving through it. It was crazy. What a fun trip.

Highest Point in Cache County

This is a great easy hike to reach the highest point in Cache County. The trail is easy to follow and the summit has great views.

Great narrow canyon!

Wall street is a great place for photos and a fun area to explore. The canyon is pretty wide for a slot canyon but it is so easy to get to. The descent and ascent can be very steep though.

One of the coolest places

The trails to and from Chesler Park are some of my favorite that I've been on. I love the joint trail and a lot of the off trail slot canyons you can explore along the way. One of my favorite places. I just wish water wasn't so hard to come by in the area.

Fun day adventure

The lake is very pretty and the trail is easy to follow and not too difficult. Dogs are allowed and camping at the lake looked pretty nice.

Less Crowded Angels Landing

I enjoyed this hike just as much as Angels Landing but it was a lot less crowded.

Beautiful Bay

A great place to stop and take photos. The island in the middle of the bay is gorgeous.

Horseback!

We rented horses from the lodge and completed this loop that way. It was a fun way to spend the day. The horses are trained to get as close to the edge as possible in order to give you a great view. I love the tunnels that have been cut through the rocks on the trail.
