A very nice trail to get away from the crowds at Bryce. Even when it's busy, you may not see any other hikers for miles!
Just did this trail 4 days ago. Spent 3 hours on it and didn't see a single other group of hikers! It was really nice to have it all to ourselves. It was the end of winter though and the beginning of the trail was covered in snow and mud. But after a half mile or so, it dried out. There are some sketchy, slightly narrow parts of the trail, covered with loose rocks or sand, that slope down so be careful. The Hat Shop doesn't have signage or anything either but you'll know it when you see it. The hike back was a little tough, but definitely doable. Just take your time and enjoy the scenery. It was nice to view Bryce from a less crowded trail.
This trail has no shade. It is a moderate downhill to awesome views.The climb back out will be tough.
A wonderful trail but very exposed and the way back is mainly uphill.
