Additional info for 50 Best Short Hikes in Utah's National Parks
For all but the shortest hikes, bring along a lightweight backpack with plenty of water and something to snack on. Lack of adequate drinking water can sometimes be a critical issue on any of the hikes located in the arid desert climate of southern Utah. It’s best to avoid some of these unshaded hikes anytime the sun is high in the sky during the warmer months of the year. Walking will not be enjoyable at those times anyway. Your backpack is a good receptacle for extra clothing as well. Because the high elevations and desert climate can experience wide swings in day and night temperatures, layering your attire is a good idea.
BIOLOGICAL SOIL CRUSTS: WATCH YOUR STEP Biological soil crusts, also known as cryptobiotic soils, consist of cyanobacteria, lichens, and mosses. They act symbiotically as a kind of nursery for other desert organisms by binding loose soil particles to prevent erosion, providing nutrients to plants, and holding water. In high desert piñon-juniper and grassland ecosystems, biological soil crusts are the dominant nitrogen source. They cover nearly all desert soil surfaces and are almost invisible in their early stages, but in maturity have a lumpish black appearance.
Do not collect rocks, plants, or artifacts. Check the weather forecast, and plan your hike accordingly. Be prepared for emergencies. Deposit solid human waste in a hole 4–6 inches deep, at least 200 feet away from water, camps, and trails. Do not approach or feed wildlife. Yield to others on the trail. Step to the downhill side of the trail when encountering horses. Additionally, in many parts of Utah’s national parks, you’ll encounter biological soil crusts, which are an important part of the desert ecosystem.
