It's a short day hike from Moon Lake Campgrounds to the Brown Duck Trail. There's plenty of camping opportunities in nearby East Basin. Please note some trail areas may be inaccessible due to winter weather. For more information, visit the Forest Service's page on Ashley National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ashley. Have a fun and safe adventure!

We suggest taking your time and choosing 3-4 parks to really enjoy, plus taking in some sights along the way. Your trip will lead you right through the heart of the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments, numerous state parks, scenic byways, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations. Take some time to explore some of these places, including Zion, Canyonlands and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

For more information check out www.grandcircle.org and www.utah.com/nationalparks/grandcircle.htm. Some suggested itineraries are available at http://www.utah.com/itineraries/grand_circle.htm.

Also check out this list of park-by-park highlights in the Grand Circle.

A representative from Rocky National Park says that it is impossible to predict when the parking lots will fill up on any given day, but usually 9:00 a.m. or later. 

Please call the RMNP Information Office 970-586-1206 for any more questions or concerns.
