I like this trail a lot. But, like an idiot, I wasn't able to research it enough before going and got to see and spend time only at one arch. So, that means we have to come back again! Keep in mind that there will be about 4.5 miles in on dirt roads to the trail. The day we were on the roads, they were pretty good and dry, though a few parts had washed out on road sides, and the road was quite rocky. We had a Volvo station wagon which navigated it well, lower clearance vehicles may have posed a challenge. The drive takes longer than walking on the trail. But this trail would not be for finishing a hike.... Though we only saw one arch, we spent an hour and 15 minutes doing .6 miles in and out. If we had been able to see other arches, we'd spend more time.

The first 9 miles are suitable for road bikes as it's a paved pathway.

Top notch views, short but sweet!

Beautiful in November. So many hoodoos and arches you walk right past. Amazing vista is red rock and green mountains. Nice little side trip.

golden wall is the best trail in red canyon, steep tho

Tourist trap, go when it’s raining! Although it’s really pretty during the sunset hours.

Lots of options. Not super crowded. Bonus to take the pups out.

Exceptional MTB Trail. I would not recommend for inexperienced riders.

Because there are so many "use" trails in the area it takes a little work to find the trail. You go straight for a few hundred feet. Then look for a trail to the left and look for a small sign. There is a switchback that goes to the small sign that says "End Trail". However the map that you get at the visitor center show the trail also forking to the right before the steeper part of the climb and generally contours to the right until it joins the "Birdseye". You can return back to where you started by turning right at this junction. Look at the OSM layer for details of the trail.

This trail does have nice views but on portions of the trails that are close to the road you also have the road noise. Still it's a nice trails with some wonderful views and interesting formations

Excellent short hike, this gem is an easy to overlook trail on the way to Bryce.

awesome little catch. deserted, eye candy all around, and Jack rabbits and chipmunks running around. my son counted 19 arches!

I loved this hike. Very relaxing and fairly easy trek. There is a beautiful overlook called Brayton Point that is worth seeing. We started off on Cassidy Trail and ended up coming down on the Rich Trail. We started late in the day 2:30-3p and made it back to the car around 5:30-6p. Great weather (1st week of April). Get out there and enjoy this one!

loved it, great for short but slightly technical, you have to pay attention to the markers.

Just pull off the road and start hiking. the scenery is amazing. We looped back to the vehicle via the bike trail across the road.

The low areas are pretty easy but the higher you go the hills get steeper and the are a lot of loose rocks.

Good little stop on a long travel day.

Nice trail. Doesn't seem to be a loop... dead ends in to an epic overlook. When heading back take "rich trail" and you'll loop back to Cassidy trail right before the parking lot.

Short and fun trail for those with small kids. There is so much to explore and we loved trying to spot all the arches.
The trailhead is easy to find and the hike is a loop just north of the parking area and is marked with a sign. It's a must do if you're in the area.

I didn't do the full trail, but it was fun and beautiful.

Excellent! There is so much beauty, to be up close was so wonderful and we could take our dog which was huge for us.

I was the only hiker on the trail. I didn't see another person until I was 5 miles in, and then just a few bikers. I left my bike on the west side and rode it 7.5 miles back to my car. Beautiful place. Eyegasms everywhere.

This stunning little loop is a short and easy/moderate stroll to the ridge line above Losee Canyon. A beautiful array of hoodoos create an imaginative wall of turrets, windows and arches.

I am reviewing only the portion of Cassidy Trail up to the second junction with Rich Trail. I then completed a loop on Rich Trail before returning to the trailhead on Cassidy Trail. This little out and back with a loop configuration came in at almost exactly four miles. Nice trail generally in the open but through some pine forest with pockets of shade. Sandy surface on Cassidy Trail. The trail crosses a broad dry wash a few times. Gentle grade on Cassidy Trail, then a few short, steep sections on Rich Trail. Nice views, nothing spectacular; there are some rock formations resembling the hoodoos seen in Bryce Canyon. You could have this trail all to yourself. I started in early afternoon on a weekday in mid June and other than a family of four hanging out in the wash about half a mile from the trailhead I saw absolutely no one. From what I can tell this trail may be more popular among mountain bikers than hikers. It is also open to equestrians and I noticed a fair amount of droppings. Of course there is no water so bring plenty if you go. Nice low key hike away from crowds.

Did about 1.5 out and back to where it forks at Rich Trail. Really nice hike and pretty level. Interesting hiking. Loved the view of parts of Red Canyon.
