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.

Iconic views of Bryce Canyon and a great introduction to what the park is all about. There are several viewing points along the trail with plenty of photo opps. The trail is easy to follow/find with some steep sections but nothing strenuous. Even though dogs are not allowed on unpaved trails in any national park, you will see them on the dirt paths of the rim trail (do at least keep them leashed). A must-do for any park visitor.

The must hike trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. This offers the views that make Bryce Canyon Bryce Canyon. The trail offers up a mileage of "1-11 miles" which is great for the various skill levels that make up National Park visitors. There are quite a few steep inclines at points but nothing too difficult. At the end of the day this is one of the most tourist filled stretches of the park so you may have to wait at points to get a good picture but its well worth it.

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.
