We did this walk and saw some fab sights. The hat shop trail is the final leg of the under the rim trail. After peekaboo loop you go right to hat shop - you pass lots of pines and furs with a number of switchbacks. The hoodoos are amazing and at the hat shop you see hoodoos with Dolomite limestone...

We did this in 2010 - it took about three hours and it was a beautiful walk, which any hiker with a minimal experience could do

One of the most beautiful hiking spots in the region. The towering hoodoos are spectacular. The little critters are a little too used to having company so watch out for the beggers. Make sure you don't get caught in a gully washer too.

Bryce Canyon National Park is absolutely amazing! We enjoyed our visit here even more than our visit to the Grand Canyon! There are lots of trails . .. something for everyone. If you are near the area, it is worth a day's visit. We drove from Las Vegas to spend the day and stay overnight. Well worth the trip!

It is probably the longest trail in Bryce and it requires good planning. It requires a permit if you want to do the whole trail - it is 23 miles one way. it is impossible to do this trail in one day. Even the "fittest fit" person capable of such a crazy thing should not do it because they would... More

So many trails that you want to walk them all. Just like in the photo the sky is so blue against the different color dirt. So beautiful.

Excellent trail with beautiful views of the red rock pinnacles and the valley below. you can start it at different points as it follows the park road and you can walk for one hour or a couple of day. It is not, as a few reviewers indicate, particular challenging for a person with average fitness. There are ups and downs,... More

Bryce is magnificent! You must see it at sunrise and sunset to get the best colors. The product of sedimentary rock and erosion, it is full of HooDoos -- pinacle-like rock formations. Great views from the Rim. Walking under the Rim is a special experience. But, be aware that the trail can be steep and slippery (loose rock, pebbles, and... More

This is a good trail that has a lot of different environments. It is definitely hot if the sun is out, there are shady areas but also spots where you feel like you are baking! Take at least 3 bottles of water per person. Great views, steep at the ends, very few people on this trail.
