This popular trail above Bryce Canyon connects all the scenic overlooks from Fairyland Point to Bryce Point. This very popular path runs along the rim of Fairyland Canyon and Bryce Canyon. Many park visitors hike the Rim Trail since it is accessible from the park road at various lookout points and provides spectacular views of the spires and canyons below. From Fairyland Point follow the well-worn gravel path southward as it winds upward through a forest of juniper, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and bristlecone pine. For about a mile the path intermittently leaves the rim to pass along the westward slopes of hills, blocking views of Faryland Canyon to the east.
