Building Interactive Trails for Kids

Junior Rangers
Bryce Canyon National Park Active Trails Program encourages healthy habits by using trail exhibit panels that allow visitors to document outdoor recreation.

As part of the Active Trails program, Bryce Canyon National Park produced nine educational interpretive panels which incorporated National Park Service benchmark survey markers.

These exhibit panels were placed at key locations along the park's popular 'hoodoo' hiking trails. New Junior Ranger booklets highlight trail locations where these markers can be found, and Junior Ranger candidates can make pencil rubbings of the benchmarks to document their outdoor recreation activity and show proof that they physically hiked the trails!
