Description

This is one of several good ways to reach the popular and delightful Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail. Starting from the parking area at Bryce Point, switchback steeply down from the rim, crossing many cliff bands. Contour below rock walls, crossing ridges and bluffs, all the while steadily losing elevation.

Keep a look out for the named hoodoo rock formations along the way. The abundance and variety of these colorful piles are the highlight of this trail. After a relatively level section of trail, plunge into the neighboring canyon by navigating a series of hairpin turns down the hill. The Peek-A-Boo Loop Connector ends at a "T" intersection with the southern tip of the Peek-A-Boo Loop.

At this point, it is wise to evaluate your energy levels before starting on the 3 mile Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail - save some strength for the taxing climb up and out of the canyon!
