Hike

Tower Bridge is a unique and uncrowded trail in Bryce Canyon. Tower Bridge gets its name from the prominent rock formation the trail leads to. The rock formation resembles London Bridge and is a sight worth visiting.

Along the trail to Tower Bridge hikers can get close views of the rock formations that make Bryce Canyon famous. The trail becomes progressively less crowded the further you hike from Sunrise Point.

The trail to Tower Bridge begins at Sunrise Point and goes North East along Fairyland Loop. On Fairyland Loop a detour trail is marked off to Tower Bridge.

The trail from Sunrise Point to Tower Bridge is 3 miles out and back and is considered moderately difficult. The beginning of the trail from Sunrise Point descends rapidly and is the most difficult part of the trail.

Hikers wishing to see Tower Bridge can also hike the entirety of Fairyland Loop. This method of access is longer. The loop is 8 miles long and more difficult than the out and back trail.

The hike to Tower Bridge is perfect for hikers wanting to experience the beautiful red rocks Bryce Canyon is famous for as well as some less explored sights. The impressive natural bridge that is Tower Bridge is a unique sight in Bryce Canyon and adds variety to any trip to the park.
