Wonderful hike. Don’t drive past it thinking you must get to Bryce, it would be a sin to not sample the delights of Red Canyon. Walked the trail 23rd September, very quiet.

I thought this was a beautiful hike for the most part but the last part to the overlook seemed dangerous. I wish I would have stopped before that last bit....not fun!

Listed as moderate, but fairly easy aside from a slightly technical descent from the topmost portion due to loose gravel and wind. Amazing views, completely deserted in the early evening.
