2023 Subaru Forester driving through the wilderness


The 2023 Subaru Forester delivers dynamic performance, standard symmetrical AWD, and a huge cargo space for luggage and larger items. That makes it the perfect family hauler for your next road trip. When you’re itching to take the scenic route and explore the beauty of the Salt Lake City and the roads beyond, settle the family into the comfortable Subaru Forester interior and visit some of these locations. Below, you’ll find our recommendations for some of the best road trips to take in your 2023 Subaru Forester.

Day Road Trips to Take in Your 2023 Subaru Forester

There are plenty of outdoor adventures to take around the mountain-lined South Salt Lake. When you’re looking to discover something new without straying far from home, here are a few day road trips to take:

Antelope Island State Park, Utah

Located about 40 miles from Salt Lake City, UT, this destination allows you to hike the Buffalo Point Trail, take in the shimmering waters of “America’s Dead Sea,” and encounter animals like bison, mule deer, bighorn sheep, and antelope.

Vernal, Utah

“Utah’s Dinosaur Land” provides an excellent opportunity to teach your children about how the dinosaurs once lived, though we suspect budding paleontologists of all ages will enjoy the sights. Located 170 miles from Salt Lake City, the road trip destination allows you to test the Forester’s on- and off-road capabilities as you camp, hike, or hunt for fossils around Vernal.

Long Road Trips to Take in Your 2023 Subaru Forester

If you have time to get out of the Park City and Tooele area, put the Forester mpg ratings to the test and hit the highways to these road trip destinations:

Idaho Falls, Idaho, Grand Teton National Park, and Yellowstone

Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone allow you to fall in love with the beauty of Mother Nature as you explore hiking trails, experience natural hot spring eruptions from Old Faithful, or witness one of eleven active glaciers. When you settle down for the night, we recommend stopping in Idaho Falls, ID. Located about 90 minutes from Grand Teton National Park, you can take in the snow-capped mountains that surround the town and feel the rush of Snake River and its falls created by a hydroelectric dam.

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

When you’re looking for ultimate relaxation, head 340 miles from Salt Lake City to Glenwood Springs Colorado. While you can find several outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, fishing, and caving, the big draw is the world’s largest mineral hot springs pool. The waters naturally reach a temperature of 122°F, but once they reach the pools in the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, they cool down to a hot tub-like 104°F.
