Rim Trail has 2 main routes. First is a paved trail that connects Sunrise and Sunset Points. It is an easy trail, that is fairly level, that has spectacular views of the hoodoos in the area. The entire trail runs from Fairyland Point to Bryce Point, which is a much more difficult trail. The "easy" portion of the trail between Sunrise and Sunset points is flat and paved. It is approximately .9 miles and shouldn't take more than 40 minutes if you take your time. The "moderate" portion connects Fairyland Point and Bryce Point. it is 5.5 miles long, and has some serious elevation changes.

Beautiful, but packed with 'lot lizzards' as it's close to the parking areas in some places.

From Sunrise Point to Sunset Point you can take your dogs here. It's only a mile trail but you can walk it several times the views are beautiful. Worth the trip even though we couldn't go very far.

Nice easiest trail with spectacular views. You can make it as short or as long as you want. You have areas to can walk off to take the tram back to your car. This is a must do if you are spend a day or two hike.

Once you get past the paved portion of the trail the throngs of people dissipate and the views are incredible. Upper Inspiration Point is fantastic!

Did the part from Fairyland to Sunrise as part of the Fairyland Loop which is 2.7 miles across the rim. This part of the rim is not paved but there were some excellent views. Not a lot of shade, bring water.

this is a mildly strenuous hike. the path is well worn and clearly visible. the views are amazing! Seriously bucket list material! I recommend taking the shuttle to the top lookout point and then hiking down. you can also Park your vehicle at the top Lookout Point hike down and then take a shuttle back to your vehicle. Unless you're a die-hard and wants to do the whole thing round trip. long story short it was awesome and one of the coolest hikes I've been on in all of Southern Utah.
