Family Adventure

Family Adventure

The Brian Head Family Adventure is a self-guided activity course along Dixie National Forest’s new and incredibly scenic Vista Trail. The Vista trailhead is at 11,000 ft. and is located at the top of the Giant Steps lift. The trail itself meanders its way down the mountain for 2.75 miles back to the base of the chairlift and Activity Center.

Activities are free with the purchase of a scenic lift ticket. Children and adults will enjoy activities that are culturally, geographically and historically significant to Brian Head Resort and the surrounding area.
** An adult must accompany children under the age of twelve for all activities.
