Next Meetup

Friday Night Sunset Hike to The Living Room! Plus dinner after!
We will be hiking up to the Living Room and watching the sunset (or the city lights depending on the season). After the hike the group will go out for dinner, generally we go to Desert Edge in Trolly Square (kids welcome). The hike to The Living Room is roughly 2.6 miles round trip and has an elevation gain of 980'. *** A headlamp is suggested year-round, as you may at some point be hiking in the dark *** Where to find us?: Please meet us by the stairs at the southeast corner of the parking lot at the start time listed on the event. Generally speaking we will begin the hike 15 minutes after the posted start time, however if it is cold or the weather is bad we may opt to leave promptly at the listed time. Winter: Micro spikes are highly suggested as the trail will most likely be very icy in the gullys, we will do our best to avoid the ice but we cannot always do this. Summer: Please bring plenty of water. This is a low elevation hike with little cover and the trail can be hot. We do however find that once we have hiked to the Ridgeline, there is usually a nice comfortable breeze that makes the hike enjoyable. Trail Description: We will follow various route to The Living Room or the peak above. Route selection is up to the host and may vary based on conditions and the perceived skill level of the group. Dogs: It is okay to bring your dogs on this hike. Bad Weather?: Generally we will still hike (except for lightning). However, if the majority of those present decide that they would rather skip the hike and go straight to dinner, we will follow the majorities decision. It is worth noting that in our experience, the weather at the location of the hike is generally better than predicted during the time period of our hike. We also reserve the option to opt for a shorter version of the hike depending on conditions (to avoid mud/ice etc) or based on the preparedness of those that show up (for example if micro spikes are needed but no one brought them.)

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.

Goals

• 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.

Dues/Fees

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.
