Where else to hike in Utah on Martin Luther King weekend

You've probably heard the national parks are giving href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsCheapChick/53258839-67/admission-free-national-park.html.csp" target="_blank">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 href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/outdoors/51489963-117/per-fees-recreation-vehicle.html.csp" target="_blank">managed by the Interior Department are waiving admission, including national recreation areas. In Utah, that includes href="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/cms/sites/sltrib/Outdoors/hikes.csp?hike=444" target="_blank">Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and href="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/cms/sites/sltrib/Outdoors/hikes.csp?hike=389" target="_blank">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 href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/51877398-78/cave-trail-timpanogos-monument.html.csp" target="_blank">Timpanogos Cave in American Fork Canyon. Cave admission should also be free.
