Hog Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Hog Canyon Trail provides one of the park’s most delightful short hikes, passing through several habitat types, including a canyon of high cliffs that offers a delightful reprieve from summer heat. The trail begins to the east of the Josie Morris Cabin near a small spring. Adjacent to the spring the park provides several signs that interpret the significance of water to Josie and to others in the West.

Josie fought for her water rights and eventually constructed a series of small dams intended to trap the water so necessary for her cattle. On hot days Box Canyon offers a pleasant short stroll to the end of the second of Josie Morris’s canyons. It was another place where she was able to corral her livestock with natural fences on three sides."
