Cave Spring Trail is a very easy kid friendly hike in Canyonlands National Park that features superb scenery in a short distance. This trail is a walking history lesson. Before the national park was established Canyonlands was used by cattle and sheep ranchers, but because of the remote location cowboys established camps to in order to make life on the range little easier. On such camp was located at Cave Springs. This hike is also a great choice for wildlife viewing. This hike is located in the park's Needles District. Canyonlands National Park has two campgrounds, Squaw Flat Campground in The Needles District and Willow Flat Campground in the Island in the Sky District.
