Loved this trek! Passageways that open up into an amazing canyon (working clockwise) and the view of the windows is impressive. Not much traffic.

Uneven but easy walk to both points. You get the colors of sunset and the sunlight on the cliffs behind you.

This was a very nice 3 hour walk up and back. The canyon walls are very impressive. Very flat and a good walk for our sore legs

We hiked this after a long car ride to the park looking to stretch our legs but not a long hike , this trail was perfect for that beautiful canyon and arch is very cool

I did this at the tail end of Cohab/Frying Pan trail. It was hard not to compare. The stone walls are magnificent on tis trail, but variety is limited compared to the vistas on the Frying Pan and Cassidy Arch trails.
I ended at Hwy 24 and hitched back to my car at the start of Cohab canyon.
Total loo of 7.5 miles (excluding ride back to car).

Nice moderate hike with beautiful landscapes of all types around every bend! Simply breathtaking

The Goosenecks was perfect for sunset! Amazing views all around. Then to Panorama Point to watch the sky change colors over all the rock, it was beautiful.

Pretty cool trail, quick and easy. The bridge is lovely. Worth it if you have an extra hour or two.

Easy as pie hike, flat ground until you reach Cassidy Arch trailhead. We did the combo GW and Cass. Arch, which was a great 1/2 day hike for us including breaks.

Did this hike the day after a snow storm. Beautiful views, a lot of snow in the ground. Some areas were tough because of ice and slippery mud from the melting snow, trekking poles we're extremely helpful. We started and finished at Bryce point, the last mile back up is a good climb and made tougher because of the snow. it's a good hike because there were up and down areas throughout, not just straight down and the straight back up.

I drove up the gravel road. It’s fine for low clearance cars if you drive slow on the bumps and rocks. It’s much shorter. The Goosenecks Trail goes a little further than you’d think and ends at a fenced in overlook on the edge of the cliff. Sunset is a nice walk to a beautiful view.

This was a fairly easy 2-mile trail that ends at an amazing natural bridge. I would rate it 5 stars if there weren’t so many children running around and shouting.

Was able to hike it yesterday morning before the snow melted. Started at Bryce point, and the views were next to none!

Awfully slimy trail as snow came early. The views cannot be beat. Hiking poles were very helpful. It definitely felt challenging at times but a great hike.

Nice up and down trail. Great views of the wall of windows and the amphitheater.

Wonderful hike with great views.

Did this trail last Sunday. It snowed the entire time, and the crowds were very light. Amazing views all around!!

around every bend something new to see.

Fairly straightforward trail leading to the arch - which is AMAZING. Definitely worth doing. Fairly steady path throughout, with a few good overlooks into the valley too.

This is an amazing hike! We did it spontaneously without any research and where very impressed with the views!
As Im reading all the coments about crowds, I can suggest to get there in afternoon as we did today. Started the loop around 15 and did run into ~15 people.

Every turn was amazing. A must do if you visit Bryce.

Loved this longer loop hike!! Bryce is such a special and unique park. I would absolutely recommend this hike to anyone who has the time! It’s a great way to really see Bryce up close.

9/28/18 - Having driven past this trailhead many times, I was under the impression that it was a short jaunt to see the base of Chimney Rock. It’s quite a bit more than that. The trail guide at the trailhead shows the elevation profile and also describes the trail as strenuous. For a big man who doesn’t get out as much as I used to, I’d agree with that assessment. I took the right fork at the first trail junction, and that results in the most consecutive climbing, and I prefer it that way. The rest of the trail was a gentle saunter by comparison. There are no close-up views of chimney rock, and most of them are either straight-on or even above the feature. This trail isn’t really about Chimney Rock, then. It’s about views of the eastern side of the Waterpocket Fold. There’s a great variety of color in the rocks and soil, as in much of the park. I went before noon, and there are some shady spots on the northern half of the loop just before the Spring Canyon junction. Definitely bring more water than you think you might need, especially from April-September.

This is not the Red Canyon (aka Peek-a-boo Canyon), where the trailhead is on US-89 about 10 miles north of Kanab, Utah.

A good hike. The view is really good. Lots of people though make it difficult for pictures.

A climb at first but the views along the way and at the top are great.

Excellent views on this trail! Looks like another planet. Keep in mind there are an EXTREME amount of people on this trail. I got started on a Wednesday at 8am, decided to do the peekaboo trail and also the Navajo trail in one hike. Probably passed 400+ people and 50+ horses by the time I got back at noon. Excellent hike but its overwhelming how many people get on this and the Navajo trail.

Easy and gorgeous with a full moon view

Wonderful short hike. The trail guide is well done, and worth the 50 cent donation to the park. Super informative. The bridge kind of hides itself against the cliffs until it suddenly doesn't. Worth doing for sure.
