We hiked about an eight mile stretch of this trail. We entered at the Auga canyon connecting trail and dropped directly into the bottom via some impressive switch backs. Then we headed North until we hit Whiteman connecting trail. Great hike, we want to go back and finish the entire trail. This was during the 4th of July and the park was packed on all of the short trails that we hiked. We only saw one other person the entire time. Will definitely go back for this one alone.
This is magical.. every so many miles the landscape changes from rocky, forested to sandy and sagebrushy. Elevation gains and losses happy often. YOU MUST CAMP at Yellow Creek!! Best spot in the park along the trial in the Rainbow Point area. MUST DO if you are in Bryce. I lived in the park and hiked it all.
An absolutely beautiful, secluded trail. The trail is barely marked at all so night hiking isn't the best since the trail is more for sightseeing rather than getting from point a to b. I'd recommend an actual topo map and compass since the trail is so void of markings. This trail will make the sound of a river the most beautiful sound in the world to you, just remember to bring iodine tablets.
