Little America Hotel - Salt Lake City

National Parks

With five distinct National Parks and sixteen National Monuments and Recreation Areas, Utah is considered by many to be the “national park capitol of the nation.” Little America in Salt Lake City makes an ideal “base camp” for your outdoor adventures.

The Wasatch National Forest sits on Salt Lake City's doorstep, with numerous trails and fishing spots less than thirty minutes from Little America. Just over Emigration Canyon on the east side of the city lies the Ashley National Forest, where in the late spring and early summer, the high country is carpeted with dazzling displays of wildflowers.

Southern Utah's scenery is very different, but no less spectacular. Dramatic landscapes of soaring red rock pinnacles, spires, and natural stone arches make up the landscape in Arches National Park, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park. The trails at Canyonlands National Park take you to the very edge of dizzying vistas, where the Colorado River is a tiny, winding ribbon thousands of feet below.

The Little America concierge can give you more information about visiting any of Utah’s National Parks during your stay with us—call 801-596-5799.
