Our son wants all of us to go to Utah this year. My wife and I are unable to hike any trails except short fairly level trails. Would we be able to see some of the great views, landscapes, etc without hiking in? Are there other activities for seniors like us to enjoy given our physical limitations?

Yes, you can see quite a bit.

You might also be interested in Adventure Caravans Grand Circle tour of the Western Parks. It takes the entire month of September but you will have seen as much of the west as possible for your physical situation. If interested you might call and ask them about hiking.

The following website on the The Grand Circle is very informative for the areas.

Plenty of places rent side-by-sides. Those things go anywhere and are loads of fun. Utah is a favorite place for us to take our RZR.

Do you have a four wheel drive vehicle? Hundreds of miles of trails and roads. Research it. Lots of info out there.

Yes - you can see plenty from easy walks; and most Nat'l Parks will give you a length in miles if the walk is longer than a few hundred feet. Ed and I invariably have our dogs along, so aren't gone from our vehicle for very long (and that's fine because I have plenty of arthritis to remind me I'm not a "hiker" any more).

If you want to be off the beaten path - there are lots of places that will rent a Jeep Wrangler for offroad tours (there was even a 4X4 road through Arches Nat'l Park) but be prepared to be bounced around a lot.

What do you like to do? When are you planning to travel? Where are you planning to travel in Utah?

We like to see beautiful/unusual scenery, a little shopping at antiques stores and photography. We would be traveling in the summer while our two grandsons are out of school. They would be with their Dad in their travel trailer and my wife and I would be in our motor home. Our son will be towing with his 4 wheel drive pickup, and we will be towing a car. We would like to visit at least one of the National Parks in Utah. Our son and grandsons want to hike.

Thanks. Would a GMC crew cab 4WD pickup be suitable for those areas?
