Fairyland Loop Trail begins at Fairyland Point, at the northern portion of the park, and takes you through spectacular hoodoos and scenery along the rim and into the canyon; including a spur trail to Tower Bridge. The Fairyland Loop Trail also includes a portion of the Rim Trail from Sunset Point to Fairyland Point. This hike is considered strenuous due to its length and meandering trails with multiple elevation changes. It is best to carry plenty of water, 1 quart (liter) for every 2-3 hours of hiking per person, as this hike typically takes 4-5 hours round trip over the 8 mile (12.9 km) length. In the summer sun screen or large brim hats are recommended and are even a comfort year round to avoid sunburn.

Beautiful scenery. If you start at Fairyland View, the first 4 miles are pretty easy with very gradual elevation change. The next 1.5 miles to sunset point are slightly up hill, but not bad. Then bring er on home with the last 2.5 on rim trail to complete the loop.

Gorgeous! Loved this hike and definitely recommend it. Lots of different scenery along the way and challenging hills mixed in nicely with flatter parts.

The start of this loop at Fairyland point is awesome. Take this trail if you want to get away from people. We saw maybe 15 people total in the 8 miles it so.
Strenuous but worthwhile. The Fairyland area doesn't have as many hoodoos but the solitude is worth it.
