Out on the Monument, the family can hike along the Emigrant Trail and pretend they're one of the many people who walked over 1,300 miles so far on this trek west. Or walk along the Oregon Trail and check out the wagon ruts left so many years ago. You're sure to find plenty of fun things to do and see.
