Great way to spend 1 to 2 hours. A hidden gem. Would recommend clockwise route and take time to explore the spur trails.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
