Great trail ! Pretty easy trail that most people could do. I showed up at 1pm and both the main parking lot and backup parking lot were totally full, had to ride a shuttle in. If you shuttle in , get off at the visitors center stop and walk through the campground and up the mountain rim. The rim is part of the trail. Super pretty views here!

Great trail, great views throughout. Concur with others who recommend counterclockwise starting from fairyland parking lot.

No shade, but beautiful hike!

Outstanding hike. Best to do it counter clockwise.

Beautiful and worth some initial minor step climbing. Most of the trail is on slick rock and not only marked by green paint marks but also watch for stacks of stones (cairns). The short cable section is an upright, just watch your foot placements. Started out 8am and only saw four others; outbound at the end saw several incoming. NOTE: At the start, you need to pass through two wire fenced areas, crossing the railroad tracks in between. Saw 2 others almost get lost if we hadn’t called them to correct.

trail is well marked and not as traveled as the queens/peekaboo loop. Loved it! Amazing views. If you can only do 1 hike while in Bryce, do this one.

This is my absolute favorite hiking trail. I did not find it difficult at all, but I am a runner and in fairly good shape (but getting old!). I am also afraid of drop-off heights and this wasn't frightening to me at all. Someone suggested we stop and look back from time to time and that was great advice. Beautiful views during all three miles, looking both ways. On a sunny day? The view of the orange hoodoos takes your breath away. I so hope to return someday!

We started our hike around sunrise from the Rim Trail adjacent to the North Campground, going clockwise. Saw maybe 6 people in first 2.5 hours of the hike so really like that benefit of an early start although it was 39 degrees so a bit chilly. Lots of early morning shadows complicated photo taking.
Took 4 hrs to completely the Fairyland Loop trail with lunch at the Tower Bridge and a million stops for photos.
Tip: Park at the visitor center overflow parking then walk through the North Campground just past loop “c”, taking a left up the short trail between campsites 60 & 61 to reach the Rim Trail.

Be prepared for hiking back out. The climb is very demanding.

Beautiful hike. We started at 8:30 and there weren't too many people. By 10 there were people everywhere

Very nice landscape! Did in 2h:20 in mid-September.

Breathtaking views! So worth hiking into the canyon to get close to the hoodoos! Challenging hike if you’re not used to the altitude. Take plenty of water, and take breaks in the shade! Loved it!

Beautiful from start to finish. Truly Fairy like feeling ascending & descending around the Hoodoos!! Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely stunning landscape!!! It doesn’t get more beautiful than this. We went over Labor Day weekend as the sun was setting after hiking the narrows at Zion in the am and this was a true treat!!! Go!!!! Trails were a little more crowded than I like but sunset is definitely a great time to go and get amazing photos.

FYI-This trail is currently shut down due to fires in Bryce 9/14/18. The road only allows up to natural bridge no where beyond. In fact they are discouraging the Below the rim hiking in general. Check with visitor center and rangers before making plans.

Amazing hike, dogs loved it. Great views. Not much water when we went.

Great medium-length hike of moderate intensity in Arches! The path was easy to follow and, except for one short stretch which required you to amble up some sand stone rocks through a ravine, it was fairly easy. I hiked this with my friend who was carrying her 2 year old in a backpack. We didn’t see other children on the trail because parts like what I just described would have been dangerous for them on their own. In a backpack, they’re fine! Beautiful views and you have a wonderful place to rest and have a snack in a sandy valley once you reach Double O Arch.

Amazing trail with the best of everything at Bryce!

I loved this Hike! It took 2 hours on Labor Day. There weren't too many other people on the trail. spectacular views descending from the highest point in the park. Nothing was flat--all up or down. One of the highlights of our trip. I would not want to take small kids on this one.

Hiked this on Labor Day. started at 8:00 am, 48°F, needed a jacket. Lots of steep down and up with spectacular views. Glad we didn't take the little kids with us. Hike time was 2 hours. Not a lot of other people on the trail. Definitely would recommend this hike.

The arch is spectacular! So nice that it’s a dog friendly trail as well. We went in the middle of the day and it was very hot, but other than that it was great!

Another beautiful trail, when done before 9am it can be very quite. I started at 8:30am, encountered about 6 other people along the way down, one hour to get from Bryce point to loop point, then about 1 hour up where aI encountered about 12 people along the ascent. Can be a huff and puff in some areas, but there is always a landing to catch your second wind. Not difficult if you are in good shape, a Sierra Club person, runner, of some CV fitness.

This trail was more beautiful than the Peekaboo Loop trail that can be done as a circle eight with this loop. I did this trail in about 1 hour 20 minutes. If you are looking for short and sweet this is it. Not really a challenging trail either.

This is a stunning hike! The canyon has so much to offer... towering hoodoos, a lush forest and beautiful geology. I began my hike just after sunrise and shared the trail with probably 20 other adventurers. It was a good thing, because around 10:00 am the trail gets very full!

Absolutely gorgeous! This combo loop is a must-do in Bryce.

Best hike yet!!!! Unbelievable views and best scenery ever!! Catch the sunrise at Bryce Point first and then hike peekaboo and get back early! Must do hike!!!!!

Beautiful trail. Well maintained. Views are excellent. Bring plenty of water.
