great first hike when we came into the area last week! met no one else on entire trail ! solitude n beauty

On an overcast day this hike is perfect. Beautiful scenery all around. Only saw a couple people. This trail consists of several loops and taking you different directions. Fun hike and worth doing if your in the area.

Driving through this area I just had to pull over at the visitors center and check it out. I didn't plan on this detor, but I kept saying, I want to see what is just around this corner, or just around that rock for it was all so very beautiful. I ended up hiking around here for over a half hour, and I have it on my list to go back and do more of it for it was surprisingly great area. Here is my blog post if you want to see some pictures. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/01/?m=1

I like this trail a lot. But, like an idiot, I wasn't able to research it enough before going and got to see and spend time only at one arch. So, that means we have to come back again! Keep in mind that there will be about 4.5 miles in on dirt roads to the trail. The day we were on the roads, they were pretty good and dry, though a few parts had washed out on road sides, and the road was quite rocky. We had a Volvo station wagon which navigated it well, lower clearance vehicles may have posed a challenge. The drive takes longer than walking on the trail. But this trail would not be for finishing a hike.... Though we only saw one arch, we spent an hour and 15 minutes doing .6 miles in and out. If we had been able to see other arches, we'd spend more time.

most of the trail is under snow right now. we still ventured out a mile or so before the snow got deeper and sketchier. the view was still fantastic though. definitely want to come back when the trail is clear.

The first 9 miles are suitable for road bikes as it's a paved pathway.

Top notch views, short but sweet!

Beautiful in November. So many hoodoos and arches you walk right past. Amazing vista is red rock and green mountains. Nice little side trip.

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

Variety of changing landscapes with lots of opportunities for photos. It's deemed one of the best scenic drives in America for a reason - don't miss it!

Tourist trap, go when it’s raining! Although it’s really pretty during the sunset hours.

Nice trail with many beautiful views I will say one thing though that is worth noting. There is a part of the trail that says "Castle Bridge" I ran into several people myself Included that were confused about what "castle bridge" was and where it was located I was expecting it to be a flat top arch or a bridge arch but it's not, it's just a big dip In a wall of rocks, there is no arch or anything like that so hopefully this may help someone in he future.

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

Exceptional MTB Trail. I would not recommend for inexperienced riders.

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 trail does have nice views but on portions of the trails that are close to the road you also have the road noise. Still it's a nice trails with some wonderful views and interesting formations

Beautiful route with tons of photo opps. If you're visiting any of the area parks, you'll find yourself driving this route automatically!

Excellent short hike, this gem is an easy to overlook trail on the way to Bryce.

awesome little catch. deserted, eye candy all around, and Jack rabbits and chipmunks running around. my son counted 19 arches!

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!

Beautiful views that don't stop. I highly recommend this trail. One of the most amazing in the area.

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