An introduction to Bryce Canyon
If you've never been IN Bryce Canyon, this is a great trail to start with! It's at one of the first 'points' just off of Sunrise Point. It's one of those trails that keeps beckoning you on further, as you just have to see what around the next bend!
You start on the Fairyland Loop Trail, heading down into the base of Bryce Canyon (which is not really a "canyon", but more of a series of amphitheaters). Surrounded by the soft, reddish-white soil and hoodoos everywhere, this is a really enjoyable, wide, smooth, and very scenic trail. You'll keep descending until you get to the bottom of the 'canyon' where there's a wash that could have water during a rainstorm. Shortly after reaching the bottom, you'll see a sign for Tower Bridge. Follow it for 100 or so yards, and look up to your right to find the bridge and its accompanying window arch (you can't really miss it).
At this point, return the way you came. Or you could continue on the Fairyland Canyon Trail for 4 miles, but it will leave you around 1.5 miles from where you parked. If you want to do the loop (5.5 miles total), I would suggest starting at Fairyland Canyon and going clockwise to arrive at Sunrise Point - It's a downhill hike to get back to your car that way.
