Help: Places to see to in SLC and tips on travelling alone.

I am planning a trip to go alone to SLC from Nov 3 - 11. I'm from NYC and never travel. My plan is to travel with only a backpack and a drawstring bag. My biggest concern is safety being alone traveling in the middle of nowhere and hiking. Are there any tips you can give me? Anything I must bring along with me? What places would you recommend whether its nature, activities that I would never normally see or anything you particularly like in Utah? Also which city would be best to find an airbnb for my trip? How do I rent a car without it costing a fortune and worrying about all the miles I would out on it.

There are a few places weather permitting that I want to see:

1. Fifth Water Hot Springs Trail Head

2. Bryce Canyon National Park (Doing one of these trails: Mossy Cave, Sunset to Sunrise, or Queen’s Garden)

3. Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (Not sure which trail yet)

Here is what I am planning to pack with me:

T-shirt (2)

Sweatpants (1)

Boxers (3)

Wool sweater (1)

Beanie (1)

Swimming shorts (1)

Shirt (2)

Pants (2)

Wool socks (2)

Sneakers (or should I wear these Dr. Martens Men's Tobias Boot instead?)
