Hike the Navajo Loop at Bryce Canyon National Park

The Deseret Morning News has this new article about the Navajo Loop Trail at Bryce Canyon National Park. The trail was recently reopened after being closed for 14 months because of a massive rockslide.

Here are excerpts:

"Navajo is our most popular trail, our flagship trail," Brent McGinn, spokesman for Bryce Canyon National Park, said, explaining that's why the park worked long and hard to reopen it.

During the trail's closure, the Wall Street section of the trail was blocked off and there was only access along the north section of the trail to Thor's Hammer and Two Bridges. Hikers completed a loop then by connecting with the Queen's Garden trail through Sunrise Point.

McGinn also said Bryce has 1.5 million visitors a year, and he estimates that half of those walk at least some portion of the Navajo Trail. He also said overall park visitation during 2007 is definitely up, though no exact figures are available yet to declare it is a record season at Bryce.
