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.

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

I loved this hike. Very relaxing and fairly easy trek. There is a beautiful overlook called Brayton Point that is worth seeing. We started off on Cassidy Trail and ended up coming down on the Rich Trail. We started late in the day 2:30-3p and made it back to the car around 5:30-6p. Great weather (1st week of April). Get out there and enjoy this one!

loved it, great for short but slightly technical, you have to pay attention to the markers.

Nice trail. Doesn't seem to be a loop... dead ends in to an epic overlook. When heading back take "rich trail" and you'll loop back to Cassidy trail right before the parking lot.

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

I am reviewing only the portion of Cassidy Trail up to the second junction with Rich Trail. I then completed a loop on Rich Trail before returning to the trailhead on Cassidy Trail. This little out and back with a loop configuration came in at almost exactly four miles. Nice trail generally in the open but through some pine forest with pockets of shade. Sandy surface on Cassidy Trail. The trail crosses a broad dry wash a few times. Gentle grade on Cassidy Trail, then a few short, steep sections on Rich Trail. Nice views, nothing spectacular; there are some rock formations resembling the hoodoos seen in Bryce Canyon. You could have this trail all to yourself. I started in early afternoon on a weekday in mid June and other than a family of four hanging out in the wash about half a mile from the trailhead I saw absolutely no one. From what I can tell this trail may be more popular among mountain bikers than hikers. It is also open to equestrians and I noticed a fair amount of droppings. Of course there is no water so bring plenty if you go. Nice low key hike away from crowds.

Did about 1.5 out and back to where it forks at Rich Trail. Really nice hike and pretty level. Interesting hiking. Loved the view of parts of Red Canyon.

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.

Great spring hike. No signs on Hwy 89 so when Bryce is jammed you'll get Red Canyon all to yourself. Old growth forest, wild flowers, and lots of sand and gravel in the bottom of the canyon. A real workout for your feet and calves.

Very interesting and scenic area of southern Utah between Zion and Bryce National Parks. It is in Red Canyon where Butch Cassidy and his gang used to escape from the law and hide out until "all was clear". Really red rocks (hence the name), awesome hoodoos and lots more vegetation than I expected. It is a mostly out-in-the-open type trail with lots of heat and sun exposure. Plan accordingly. The Loop itself is not difficult but well worth the time it takes to hike it. Be sure to stop at Red Canyon if you are on your way to Zion or Bryce - I think a lot of people just kind of zoom on past it without realizing the beauty it has to offer.

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.

Hiked a five mile chunk. Sure it's for bikers but we only saw two. And no other hikers. Quite peaceful and the stretch we hiked was not too demanding. Fantastic views. Lots of nutcrackers and a couple of hawks. Plus lizards of course.

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
