Northern and Southern Utah in June

Utah is divided into two regions: Northern Utah and Southern Utah. Here’s what to expect when you visit each part of the state in June.

Northern Utah in June:

You’ll find terrific shopping, restaurants, and night life at the three large cities in Northern Utah: Salt Lake City, Park City, and Provo.

In June, some of the higher elevation mountain hiking, biking, and off-road trails may still be wet or even have snow.

The lower elevation trails could be wet and muddy after a rain storm or due to snow runoff.

Southern Utah in June:

It’s important to note that most of the way driving from Northern to Southern Utah you’ll be passing through rural areas with small towns, limited services, and spotty cell service.

Check to see where the Utah vacation spots are located around the state because a drive from Salt Lake City to any of the National Parks in the south can take 4 to 5 hours.

All 5 Utah National Parks are located in Central and Southern Utah. June is a popular time of year so be prepared for crowds and take note if permits are required to enter or participate in the activities you want to do!

Before heading out to explore any National or Utah State Park, check with the visitor center at each destination for the most current information.
