We have drove this with our Side X Side 3 times and it gets better each time. The views are like Bryce, but without the crowds. It is the offroad ride we love the most. It handles Side X Sides, ATV's and motorcycles well. It's a hidden gem, so not many people go on it. While you could hike it, and it would be beautiful, make sure you go an off time or you will be eating dust from the off road vehicles, and there is no water. So, my recommendation is, there are better hiking trails, I would avoid it for hiking. I doesn't take long, but don't go if there is going to be a storm or if heavy rain has come through since the trail at times could be impassible. PLEASE DON'T TAKE JEEPS OR THE LIKE ON THIS TRAIL. You could get stuck, cause the other off road vehicles there to have to go way around you and ruin the sides of the trail. That's why they close trails like this, because these are not meant for on road vehicles, so please be responsible. The gate opening is only big enough for about a 62" vehicle. DON'T cut the fence and drive around because your vehicle is too big to fit ... there is a reason it's there. It is for Offroad atv type vehicles only (and hiking/biking if you dare). If you continue up the trail past the acutal hiking area (about 7 miles up the vehilce trail) then you find yourself in some wonderful back road trails as well. However, there are a few areas that are tight to get you Side X Side through. Take some pics, because the views are out of this world.

Birdseye & Pink Ledges are two beautiful short trails. Golden walls trail was not in good shape due to washouts caused by heavy rain few weeks before. The view there isn‘t that great.

Easy, accessible, great views. Few people on trail in the morning, and relatively well-shaded.

Very nice pseudo-short trail. Although it says “easy”, be aware that it there are a couple of climbs which could prohibit older members of your party from participating. Great views and completely uncrowded at 8am.

Nice trail at the VC that offers a taste of Red Canyon. A must do if short on time.

Perhaps the shortest trail here yet for minimal effort it gives you nice rock formations and a taste of the site.

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.

Beautiful Drive. We have a upgraded Toyota Tacoma and some of the spots were tight, but overall a beautiful secluded drive.

Lots of options. Not super crowded. Bonus to take the pups out.

Bird eye Trail and photo trail are the beautiful small hikes in this location.

Because there are so many "use" trails in the area it takes a little work to find the trail. You go straight for a few hundred feet. Then look for a trail to the left and look for a small sign. There is a switchback that goes to the small sign that says "End Trail". However the map that you get at the visitor center show the trail also forking to the right before the steeper part of the climb and generally contours to the right until it joins the "Birdseye". You can return back to where you started by turning right at this junction. Look at the OSM layer for details of the trail.

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.

This is a nice trail to the top of a hill where you can view both tunnels on highway 12. It climbs gradually and has benches for rest stops

Excellent! There is so much beauty, to be up close was so wonderful and we could take our dog which was huge for us.

Great for ATVs and side-by-sides. the hoodoos and rock formations are beautiful. Can be linked with a ride down Limekiln Canyon. Would recommend this ride very highly.

A great trail for ATV'S and Side X Sides. Not technical, easy to ride just be careful of rain and or flash floods. Can be ridden as a loop using Line kiln Canyon, just to the north of Casto.

Not a mountain biking trail. This is a sandy sandy trail in a wash. It's terrible for biking. My husband and I left and did Thunder Mountain instead.

Awesome trail beautiful rock formations and a canyon full of Hoodoos... certain times of the year there is a small stream that runs thru the bottom of the canyon...be careful if you are making this trip during the monsoon season this canyon can be very nasty during a flash flood
