Pros: -Pretty easy trail -There were many spots to sit and enjoy some fresh air -You could walk up to some of the beautiful structures -There were posts along the trail that you can follow with an interpreting guide found at the visitor center, which provided some nice information Cons: -Very rocky -Not great views as trees were in the way Overall this would be a nice excursion if you only had like 20-30 mins or were headed to Bryce and wanted to stop and take a look. If you want a longer or more difficult hike there are plenty other trails in red canyon to hike!

Nice trail with great views and some elevation gain but nothing crazy. Lots of nice hoo-doos, some caves, and a great look out point at the end of the Bird’s Eye trail. Great that you can take the doggos as well.

Beautiful easy trail. If you want views of hoodoos and formations like you get in Bryce without the crowds and without a lot of elevation gain, this trail is for you! Super easy with tons of great views around every turn.

Started on the Pink Ledge Trail and then connected with Birds Eye Trail. Very Gusty Day. A gust of wind blew off my husbands hat and glasses. Luckily we found them. Also, trails are narrow with steep sides and wind could make one lose balance, especially children. But a beautiful hike and not heavily traveled.

This was our first hike in this canyon. This was a good one to get a feel for the area and the difficulty level. Nice simple hike. I did wish I brought my poles since most all the trails have loose rock and they are helpful to have.

The trail itself was good. Was not too keen on the fact I could hear the highway the whole time, but it had pretty views.

The visitor center next to this trail is currently closed. Tons of parking available. A super easy trail offering some nice views right off the highway. It was a just a bit muddy as of this morning.

Passing through on new years eve- lots of snow! Beautiful quick hike, OK in boots but actually snow shoes would have been fine. Took the pup and he had blast. Tiny bit hard to see the trail in the snow but there are markers. Beautiful just before sunset. Easily tacked on some of the short loops nearby.

Conditions on the trail are wonderful. I started out early in the morning and the sun hitting the cliffs were beautiful. It was 15 degrees but sunny

Short hike that gives you a number of good views of the Red Canyon. It was exceptional around sunset, though I suspect sunrise would be nice as well. While short, most of it is modest uphill or downhill, and there are a few short steep sections with some loose rock and dirt. Moderately easy hike that is well worth it.

Lots of short trails that would be good for families. We did the larger loop, which has amazing red rock formations. The only negative is the trails are right off the highway, so you hear some motor traffic.
