My kids were too young to hike anywhere that was any different than looking over the edge with 1000 other tourists. Line up to take pictures every where. The north side was closed when we tried to go. Bryce NP was great too. The San Rafael Swell has great moderate wheeling and excellent hiking. See http://climb-utah.com/ for some ideas
Hiking The Narrows trail in Zion is not for little kids unless they can ride on dads shoulders. I mention it because the first time I did it as a 10 year old I was beyond blown away. When my wife and I did it later in life (before kids) we were both blown away. Not our kids are big we will take them there again and be blown away again! Hard to explain the experience!
