Great hike with a lot of variation in the landscape. As it is part of the Fairyland Loop, you can always extend it to make a longer hike but at the end of the day, just going out to Tower Bridge and back was a great hike to end with. There are some really nice views of the hoodoos. The trail is also fairly wide and even, not too many rocks, but a little snowy/muddy at the end of winter. The white sandstone against the sapphire sky was incredible. And across from that was this sea of red sand and the China Wall. It felt like being on Mars. Tower Bridge, you can't actually get that close to, but you can see it pretty decently if you find a spot between the trees. This trail is not nearly as popular as the Navajo or Queens trails but worth venturing down for some variation.

In my opinion Tower Bridge itself isn't really worth the hike. However the Chinese Wall, which is about halfway on this out and back, definitely is. So if I did it again I'd go to the Chinese Wall and turn back there, saving the time and energy for a second hike.

Fun beautiful hike with many different rock formations to observe! It is a pretty hot trail with not much shade so bring water! This would be a good hike for families as it is pretty easy and not many dangerous areas like other hikes in the area.

Did this hike during the fairyland loop and had a wonderful time. Incredible incline but totally do-able. Great sites as well.

Pretty easy trail depending on the shape you are in. Going down is really easy, coming up is a little more difficult but the ascent is pretty gradual and the view is absolutely incredible. Getting the Tower Bridge is well worth the effort. Very beautiful rock formation at the end.

Beautiful hike that also provided a relief from the crowds at other trailheads. I was literally saying "oh wow" out loud multiple times, loved the variety of scenery and landscape, and came back from the hike a better man than when I started it. I loved this hike so much.

Great hike with a lot of variation in the landscape. As it is part of the Fairyland Loop, you can always extend it to make a longer hike but at the end of the day, just going out to Tower Bridge and back was a great hike to end with. It was fairly empty as well, we saw no one as we headed out and only 3 people on the return trip. There are some really nice views of the hoodoos. The trail is also fairly wide and even, not too many rocks, but a little snowy/muddy at the end of winter. The white sandstone against the sapphire sky was incredible. And across from that was this sea of red sand and the China Wall. It felt like being on Mars.
