Great hike with a lot of variation in the landscape. As it is part of the Fairyland Loop, you can always extend it to make a longer hike but at the end of the day, just going out to Tower Bridge and back was a great hike to end with. There are some really nice views of the hoodoos. The trail is also fairly wide and even, not too many rocks, but a little snowy/muddy at the end of winter. The white sandstone against the sapphire sky was incredible. And across from that was this sea of red sand and the China Wall. It felt like being on Mars. Tower Bridge, you can't actually get that close to, but you can see it pretty decently if you find a spot between the trees. This trail is not nearly as popular as the Navajo or Queens trails but worth venturing down for some variation.

Great trail! Enjoyed the scenery the entire hike, the uphill like most trails was tough, but doable for the average hiker. Took me about 1:30 start to finish.

Key word here is moderate. It's easy on the primary down path but gets tough coming up on the return leg. Still, as with most things in Bryce, stunning

We took our 4 kids on this trail. It's a nice upkept trail with amazing views. It was about 3.7 miles long, and keep in mind that the return is uphill. It's located inside Bryce Canyon national park, so you'll have to pay the entrance fee

Hike this as part of the Fairyland Loop trail. The bridge is quite amazing and the trail is excellent and uncrowded in February

In my opinion Tower Bridge itself isn't really worth the hike. However the Chinese Wall, which is about halfway on this out and back, definitely is. So if I did it again I'd go to the Chinese Wall and turn back there, saving the time and energy for a second hike.
