My coworker from Bryce Canyon was a Ranger at Great Basin in 2019 and 2018 so we came out for a few days to explore. Our first stop was the upper Visitor Center by Lehman Caves (which is currently closed to to covid -_- ).
This short 3/10 mile nature trail takes off from the VC and passes the natural cave entrance.
You can ask for a guided nature hike booklet to take with you on the walk but I had my very own Interpretative Ranger to hike with so that was great.

We visited the new astronomy amphitheatre and saw a hoard of pinyon jays, also a gopher snake who was sunning itself along the closed road.
Canyon Freak Adventures!
