When a national monument gains “national park” status, are they guaranteed to receive an immediate boost in attendance in the following years?
Is there such thing as a “National Park Effect?”
What will happen with attendance at the nation's newest National Parks in the next few years?
We attempt to answer the question.
Many people come to Bryce Canyon National Park to see the hoodoos, but few make their way over to the Water Canyon area and hike the Mossy Cave Trail. This part of the park may seem remote, but it is relatively close to the main section of Bryce Canyon and very much worth the time it takes to get here.
This hike includes a cave (with cool temperatures that will surprise you), a gorgeous waterfall, hoodoos and even an arch. In fact, few hikes in Bryce Canyon even have a little bit of water, so this trail is actually quite a unique experience.
This hike is fantastic for families, and highly recommended if you have the time while visiting this picturesque park.
Over 2.6-million people visited Bryce Canyon National Park and took in the beauty of the hoodoos. One thing particularly nice about Bryce Canyon is that you don’t have to hike far to take breathtaking photos-you can get them right from the rim of the canyon. However, if you want to really get steeped in the beauty without having to work too hard, the Queens Garden combined with the Navajo Loop Trail is the hike to take!

U.S. National Parks are famous for their incredible scenery. Some of the most iconic views, like Tunnel View can be seen from a parking lot. However, you’d be missing out if you didn’t lace up your hiking boots and leave the pavement and boardwalks to see these gorgeous vistas!
