You've probably heard the national parks are giving free admission for the three-day weekend celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. But those aren't the only places to hike for free.

All lands managed by the Interior Department are waiving admission, including national recreation areas. In Utah, that includes Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. They both have hiking trails, too, and are good bets to be less crowded than the national parks. And, of course, there's Timpanogos Cave in American Fork Canyon. Cave admission should also be free.

Here's a list of other Martin Luther King Jr. Day activities in Utah.
