    This is a nice little trail if you are on a trip up or down Arizona. The parking lot is a little crazy and expect throngs of visitors but it is a great chance to stretch your legs for a few minutes.

    I spent three days hiking all over Bryce. This hike is beautiful. Of all the hikes in the north end of the park this one really had the most magical views. If you leave early in the morning you will find solitude and quiet and probably beat the horses in and out.

    As with all of the trails that depart from the rim you will do most of your hard work coming back out.

    Start from Bryce Point rather than where it joins the Navajo Loop. The descent from the point is really lovely.

    This is the most spectacular view in the park. Don't skip this one - no matter what!

    If you want to commune with hoodoos and find solitude this is your hike. I ran into only a few other hikers and the views were amazing.

    Once you get past the paved portion of the trail the throngs of people dissipate and the views are incredible. Upper Inspiration Point is fantastic!

    Incredible views. Lots of hikers.

    Very well maintained shady trail. It was a steady but not too steep incline with incredible views at the top!

    (You probably won't have cell service to check your map or check-in until you get high enough.)

    Steep and fast. It's a really good workout.

    The trail has lots of boulders and rocks to climb around and climb over. The tunnel is incredible. Wear good shoes.

    There were Lots of tiny lizards on the trail today!

    This hike is a hidden treasure! The trails are very nice with a lot less loose rock and gravel than a lot of other valley hikes.

    There are huge saguaros and great views along most of the path.

    It is a steady incline but not too steep considering the amount of elevation gain you make.

    It connects to other trails near the peak making it easy to add length to your adventure.

    This is the type of hike I would bring out of town visitors on.

    The trails were a little crazy and unmarked. You never lose sight or sound of the city.

    This was a really great trail with some big ups! You will get a good workout, see a lot of great scenery, and avoid a lot of the summit traffic.

    Soooooooooo many bikers. I got annoyed having to get out of their way so much.

    The trail is rated moderate but it was pretty flat most of the time. I would guess it was rated moderate solely for length.

    Good trail for trail running as there are far fewer rocky patches on this route.

    There were great flowers on parts of the hike.

    This is a good trail for trail running. The trails are pretty clear compared to other local hikes.

    I was somewhat annoyed by the number of bikers and having to get out of their way so much. For that reason alone I do t think I will frequent this trail much.

    My short hobbit-like legs made for a steady pace to the top and a slow trip back down. Such incredible views!

    Great workout! Wear sunscreen.

    Bring bug spray. There were a lot of mosquitos tonight.

    I parked over at the North Mountain visitor's center, took trail 100 over to 101, and then up to the peak.

    It is a nice fast hike if you are looking for a good in-town workout. Great views but a lot of traffic.

    You do not gain the 900+ feet mentioned in the hike description. It is only around 600.

    This is a very pretty area! It is greener than a lot of other in-town hikes with a great view of other mountains once you get to the top.

    There are a lot of points where various trails cross and actually finding the ridgeline trail was difficult.

    The trail was super rocky (the type of rocky where there are rocks sticking up all over large lengths of the trail, not really gravelly like other local trails). Due to the rocks this is not a great trail running trail.
