Convinced my kids to do one more short hike before we left the Bryce Canyon area, and the word "pink" seemed like a good bet. There's not much pink here, but there are quite a few beautiful red hoodoos and fins. The trail is easy, with only a few slight hills. It is not wheelchair accessible, but should be walkable by most everyone else.

Start by the small cabin at the east end of the parking lot. There is a trail marker there along with a box that might hold trail guides. During our visit, it only held some rocks. The branches of the trail are well-marked, and provide opportunities for some longer loops for those of you who aren't there with small children who don't want to hike any more. The other end of the trail is behind the Visitor's Center and restrooms, and so the final leg of the loops is across the parking lot.

It's a very pretty little trail, and is worth the stop. We only saw a few others on the trail, compared to the hordes in Bryce.

We took the trail in a clockwise direction from where the Birdseye Trail meets this trail. We went up the hill then down the other. The way back was on a flat trail from the visitors center back to the parking area. The start of the trail was a little steep in places with a few switchbacks. There were a few benches which provided a nice view. There were many wooden posts with numbers from 1-13. I am not sure what they represented. There were a few diversions we took from the trail that were neat little places to explore. This is a fun little trail that can provide a lot of interesting formations and different colors of rocks to look at.

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.

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

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 is a beautiful trail that has an Interpretive Guide to let you know about the area. This was my favorite trail of the 4 trails that I hiked on the north side of Highway 12.

Easy walk through hoodoos. Many use trails along the trail that climb up to the Hoodoo's

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

This is a nice trail to the top of a hill where you can view both tunnels on highway 12. It climbs gradually and has benches for rest stops

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.
