Riggs Spring Loop Professional Review and Guide

"A loop traversing above and below the Pink Cliffs at the southern edge of Bryce Canyon National Park. Hikers can complete this 8.8-mile loop as a day hike or as a relaxing overnight backpacking trip. There are three park backcountry campgrounds along the trail. The trail passes through country south of Rainbow Point, crossing some of the more remote backcountry of Bryce Canyon National Park.

The northwestern portion of the trail stays above the rim of the Pink Cliffs and traverses a pleasant subalpine forest until it reaches the Yovimpa Pass Campground. From Yovimpa Pass, the trail follows the Lower Podunk Creek wash down from the canyon rim to Riggs Spring. Beyond Riggs Spring, the trail skirts the base of pink limestone cliffs before climbing around The Promontory and returning to Rainbow Point."
