Under-the-Rim Trail, Bryce Canyon NP (Estimate)
Bryce Point to Rainbow Point
Could add 2 miles for a specific campsite or add a few at the end but this is the official route from start to finish.
There are 8 campsites on the 22.9 mile (36.9 km) Under-the-Rim Trail.
You MAY find water at the following backcountry locations:
Yellow Creek (near all campsites)
Sheep Creek (near campsite)
Iron Spring (trail near campsite)*
Riggs Spring (inside log fence area)
Yovimpa Spring (below Yovimpa Pass campsite)
* Note: Water in Iron Spring has substantial sediment and metallic taste
Due to the presence of black bears within Bryce Canyon National Park, the use of bear-resistant food canisters on overnight backcountry hikes is highly recommended.
Bear-resistant canisters are available for loan, free of charge, at the Visitor Center.
Store all food and scented personal items in the bear canister.
Never cook, store food and food scraps, or keep scented items in your tent.
Do not sleep in the clothes you were wearing when you cooked.
Hanging food is insufficient!
Waste - Dig "catholes" 6 to 8 inches (15 cm) deep at least 200 feet (60 m) away from water, trails and campsites to bury human waste.
Fires - NO OPEN FIRES in the backcountry. Camp stoves are permitted.
