Holbrook Canyon Family Hike

Living in Bountiful, Utah gives us access to so many amazing hikes right in our back yard! This canyon has been one of my favorites since I was a kid! My Aunt Megan used to take me on this hike before they actually made it known to the public.

With autumn in full swing, Brent and I wanted to take full advantage of the weather and get out with the kids for a short hike to see all the leaves changing colors.

Holbrook Canyon is about 10 minutes from our front door so it is one of our go-to hikes with the kids.

This hike is a 8 mile out and back single track trail. There are a few spots that can be sketchy with young children so make sure to keep a hand on them through steep sections. You hike along a river and you cross it a few times with man made bridges. It does get very thick at about the 3-4 mile mark. We took the kids about a mile and half in and called it good for the day.

Sunday hikes with my family are one of my favorite things. We love to experience a new adventure and discover new things along the way.

Make it a goal to get outside more with your family, it strengthens our relationships and sometimes our patience with 3 kids and a dog.. We never regret it though.

Get outside!
