The Riggs Spring Loop Trail is a challenging 8-1/4 mile loop that descends from the pine forests of Rainbow Point past hoodoos into wooded canyons below. You'll encounter great panoramas south and pretty scenery all along. It can be tackled in a day with some effort or can be made into an easy overnighter. Overnight camping is permitted along the trail at designated sites only. Permits may be obtained at the visitor center. (See Bryce-Camping for additional details.)
