Bryce Canyon Alternatives

Jump to last reply

We are taking the kids to Bryce Canyon in about 2 weeks. I am hoping that the parks will be open by then but I am not holding my breath!! Fortunately, we are staying at Rubys Inn, so that will be ok. I am trying to think of things to do within a 20-30 minute drive. This is what I have come up with. Any other ideas that one can do with an 8 year old and a 10 year old (easy-moderate) would be welcome.

Day One: Drive from Salt Lake to Bryce. Check in etc. Hike the Mossey Cave trail. While this is part of Bryce, the trailhead is outside the park. I am hoping that we can still do this hike.

Day Two: Morning: Hike the Willis Creek Slot Canyon. (might be a little bit more than 30 mins but it looks like a ton of fun!) Its out and back so we can stop whenever we want etc. Afternoon: Bike the Red Canyon Bike trail (or whatever flat trail is near Rubys Inn, but I think Red Canyon bike trail will work)

Day Three: I already have horseback riding reservations for a ride in Red Canyon so I am assuming that will be open. Then drive home.

I have been to Kodachrome Park, can't see the kids getting into that one. I dont' know how far the drive is to Escalante to see the Petrified Wood/Forest State Park there. It looks like there is a historic cabin in Tropic, maybe we could take a look at that. Plus swim in the pool at Rubys. Thoughts? Ideas?
