Hat shop formations are worth it! Hike early in the morning or later evening. Take water. Save most of it for the return. Great views along the way. It took us about 3 hours. We went in the middle of the day. The way out is much harder. We are average ability hikers.

nice going down, STEEP on the way back out - it's fun to go part ways but doing the whole thing is a drag - if you want a less travelled trail which won't kill you on the uphill try the Riggs Spring Loop instead

Excellent trail, took us 2 and a quarter hours with lots of stops for photos. Amazingly lightly trafficked for Bryce in the summer season - we saw only one other person!

Quite a work-out on the way back but totally worth it. Hat Shop itself was great to see close up.

Look out for the pine tree, right by the trail, recently struck by lightning, blasting large chunks of trunk off the tree
