Convinced my kids to do one more short hike before we left the Bryce Canyon area, and the word "pink" seemed like a good bet. There's not much pink here, but there are quite a few beautiful red hoodoos and fins. The trail is easy, with only a few slight hills. It is not wheelchair accessible, but should be walkable by most everyone else.

Start by the small cabin at the east end of the parking lot. There is a trail marker there along with a box that might hold trail guides. During our visit, it only held some rocks. The branches of the trail are well-marked, and provide opportunities for some longer loops for those of you who aren't there with small children who don't want to hike any more. The other end of the trail is behind the Visitor's Center and restrooms, and so the final leg of the loops is across the parking lot.

It's a very pretty little trail, and is worth the stop. We only saw a few others on the trail, compared to the hordes in Bryce.

We took the trail in a clockwise direction from where the Birdseye Trail meets this trail. We went up the hill then down the other. The way back was on a flat trail from the visitors center back to the parking area. The start of the trail was a little steep in places with a few switchbacks. There were a few benches which provided a nice view. There were many wooden posts with numbers from 1-13. I am not sure what they represented. There were a few diversions we took from the trail that were neat little places to explore. This is a fun little trail that can provide a lot of interesting formations and different colors of rocks to look at.

This is a beautiful trail that has an Interpretive Guide to let you know about the area. This was my favorite trail of the 4 trails that I hiked on the north side of Highway 12.
