All of the Utah national parks are great, and it's hard to choose a favorite! But we definitely recommend checking out Utah's Scenic Byway routes as you travel between parks. Also, don't limit you activities to the hours when the sun is up! Utah has some of the darkest night skies in the country, making for the ultimate stargazing experience!

For more information about Utah's national parks, check out the news sections for individual parks on our website, or visit Utah.com.

We hope you have a great trip. Be sure to come back and let us know how it goes!

I have yet to do any backpacking in Yellowstone.  I love waterfalls so I'd backpack the southwest corner of the park.  http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/backcountryhiking.htm

One hike you might consider is the Charles Bunion Loop.

The Charlies Bunion Loop is a great hike and can be done in 1-3 days depending on your ambition and speed.  Parts of the trail are very visited, however, so do keep in mind that this isn't a "don't see another soul" kind of hike.  Beautiful vistas and a lot of the Great Smoky up-and-down, rolling evergreen hills is what you'll find.

To get to this trailhead the closest large town is Asheville, NC.  Take I-40 west to exit 27 to US 19 S to Cherokee. Turn right onto US 441 N and go 20 mi. to Newfound Gap parking area.

Planning a backpacking trip in Glacier National Park for August 2010. Are there shuttle providers serving between Apgar & Kintla Lake?

Kintla Lake is located in a remote northwest section of Glacier National Park known as the North Fork. It is not serviced by the park shuttles, and is located approximately 40 miles north of Apgar. Though the drive along the North Fork Road to Kintla Lake is very slow and bumpy, the scenery is spectacular. Part of the drive takes you through the tiny community of Polebridge, and sections of the park that notably burned in 1988 and 2003.

The park's shuttle system runs mainly along the Going to the Sun Road. For a shuttle map and more information about Glacier's shuttle system, click here.

go over to the Glacier Chat Page at http://glacierparkchat.com/phpBB3/index.php and ask the question there.  There's still no shuttle, but sometimes rides can be arranged with others in the same predicament.

Shuttles don't go up to the North Fork of the Flathead (location of Kintla Lake). Car rentals are a good choice for this as it is an area most tourist don't get to and well worth the trip!
