    This year my daughter and I will be doing the Utah challenge. I live in Bend Oregon and she is Boise Idaho so will have to consolidate our hikes. Any input on if there are 2-3 you can do over a few days and if so which ones? Thankyou!

    Tough call. Difficultly is somewhat subjective and varies based on current conditions (I.e. snow). I’d look at five factors:

    1. Proximity to other hikes
    2. Mileage
    3. Vertical gain
    4. Top elevation
    5. Current conditions

    All of the hikes in the challenge are easily done in a day (or less) from Salt Lake City. Some of them have longer mileage and/vertical gain that should be factored in.

    I could probably do three over three days, but I’d be happier doing two. 😉
