    Morgan Scott reviewed Fairyland Loop Trail

    Fun scenic beautiful somewhat challenging loop hike. We were feeling the steep sections coming out, probably more so because this was the morning after a late afternoon hike of Angel's Landing. There seems to a lof of debate over which way to go around the loop, but we did it such that Tower Bridge and Rim Trail portions were at the end. I think it worked out ok this way for us, made the climb out longer but less steep, and I found the most scenic portions on the downhill entrance this way, so were freshest to enjoy and take lots of pictures

    Finally got to do this in April. I enjoyed it a lot. Was crowded but I think that is partially due to the mid afternoon start time as we landed in Vegas that morning, drove to Zion for this hike, and needed to be in Bryce to sleep that night, also the fact that spring break was in full swing didn't help reduce the crowds any I'm sure. Based on all the pictures we had seen of the last half mile out to the landing, we didn't know if we would be able to do it, could literally feel our stomachs drop just looking at the pictures contemplating being on those narrow sections. I can say, once there, we never hesitated of felt uncomfortable in any way on any part of it. The chain is pretty reassuring and I really don't believe it feels as narrow as it looks in the photos. Don't get me wrong, plenty of people get the narrow ridge section and turn around, but even with my respect (fear) for heights, it didn't feel that bad. There are definitely a few steep sections on the switchbacks, but most of the worst ones are short, a few quick rest breaks made them manageable and the last section to the top had my calves feeling it a bit. But overall I am really happy we got to do this one, feeling accomplished after not knowing if we could finish or not

    We did a portion of this hike in April, Wire Pass to first rock fall, about 9miles round trip in and out. Was beautiful, will post a few pictures The drop off obstacle people mention in Wire Pass really wasn't that bad to climb down, or climb back up on the way back, a few logs and rocks placed perfectly to make it easier, we have a youtube video that shows us going down and up this. Would love to do the through hike from Wire Pass to Lees Ferry someday, but need to coordinate with other hikers in order to get a car at each end. Have started this group in facebook where hikers interested in through hikes can post and meet others interested in same hikes, to set up ride shares https://www.facebook.com/groups/1986748654889852/ if you have any interests in through hikes, please join and contribute

    Our most challenging and rewarding hike to date, partially because we added a trip to the south rim via Boot Canyon Trail after coming down from the peak. It is doable as a day hike, 14miles, took us 11 hours, but well worth it, the views from the south rim were amazing and we had all of that part of the hike to ourselves. We were there in August and started our hike in 60 degree weather with a high of 85 by the time we got to the peak, so don't let Texas desert in summer scare you away, the elevation of Chisos range keeps you cool. BTW, if you climb all the way up to Emory, you will have a choice to scramble up a peak on your left, or one on your right, if you want to see the medallion, choose the one on your right. We chose the left and were too tuckered to scramble again knowing we had a lot more hiking in front of us
