Next Meetup

Monday Night Beginner Hike - Brighton Lakes! (Bring a headlamp)
Our beginner hikes are intended to help bring people together who share our interest in the outdoors. It is our intent to create a series of hikes that will help those interested in hiking and outdoor exploration begin the process of working up to bigger adventures. Our beginner hikes will be on trails of varying difficulty, some of these trails may be considered more moderate than beginner. We define beginner hikes as hikes where we take an appropriate pace and rest stops as needed to allow everyone to complete the hike who wants to. We will try to pick hikes to prepare beginners to go on longer hikes, hikes with greater elevation gain and hikes with more challenging terrain and obstacles. These hikes will hopefully help prepare you for future adventures with us. After the hike it is Utah Outdoor tradition to go out for dinner or drinks, but this is optional and up to the event host and those attending the hike. Often we will be going to bars as they are open later and can often better accommodate large group, if you are under 21 or are bringing kids to the hike let us know as soon as possible as we are often able to accommodate this when planning where to go! Trail Description Details to be added soon! Please bring a headlamp and microspikes on our winter hikes. Driving Directions Details to be added soon!

What we're about

Welcome to Utah Outdoors!

Utah Outdoors is an outdoor community of 7,300+ members in Utah. Founded in 2012, we have been working on expanding our group so that we can provide greater opportunities for adventure. Our leadership and those who lead our events are all volunteers who are passionate about helping others find ways to get outdoors. We strongly believe that getting outdoors often is beneficial to our well being.


• To explore the canyons, deserts and mountains of Utah and the neighboring states.

• To bring together those who share our love of the outdoors and to encourage others to build strong friendships.

• To create a community that will help fulfill the above purposes.

Core Values

• Adventure: We are driven to explore new places. We accept challenge and work to expand our limits.

• Community: We believe that everyone should be given a chance. We believe in building strong friendships and helping each other.

• Education: We share our knowledge with others to help them achieve their goals.

• Responsibility: We believe in doing the right thing. We hold others accountable for their actions. We protect each other and we speak out when we see something that is not right.


We want everyone to be able to experience all that the outdoors has to offer in Utah. It does cost money to run this Meetup group, but we do not have any mandatory dues or fees. We hope that if you enjoy our group that you will find a way to chip in, you can do this by leading hikes, helping others or by making a donation.
