Bryce Canyon

The Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon is an easy hike in southern Utah that is kid friendly and features beautiful scenery. This trail is the most popular hike in Bryce Canyon and for good reason. The trail descends into the Bryce Amphitheater through a slot canyon then opens up to sweeping scenery. If you seek solitude this trail is probably not the best choice, but a few people are well worth the awe-inspiring views. Caution, this trail is notorious for rockslides. Be careful. Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, Sunset and North Campgrounds.


Mormon Pioneers settled Bryce Canyon in the early 1850’s. The park is named after Ebenezer Bryce who homesteaded in the area in the 1870's.
