The Hat Shop Trail


The Hat Shop Trail is a down and back trail that begins at Bryce Point. It is not a loop.

Walk down along the Under the Rim Trail to see a cluster of delicately balanced-rock hoodoos known as the Hat Shop.

Although listed as a “Moderate” hike, the Hat Shop Trail should be listed as “Moderately Difficult”. With a steep descent, visitors with “bad knees” should be extra careful. The hike back to the top is considered an accomplishment in itself. During winter, the Hat Shop Trail is easily listed in the “Very Difficult” category and is not advised unless very well prepared.
