a significant portion

We started this hike from where the national park boundary intersects Podunk Creek Road just west of Rainbow Point. There is a 1.5-mile long NPS service road (shown on the 7.5 minute USGS map but not shown on most other maps) that connects Podunk Creek Road to the main Bryce Canyon Road. This service road is gated at both ends and intersects the main Bryce Canyon Road approx. 1.25 miles south of the Ponderosa Canyon Parking/Trailhead. We hiked the service road, then hiked the 1.25 miles along the paved scenic drive to the Trailhead. From there we hiked the 1.6-mile long Aqua Canyon Connecting Trail to the Under-the-Rim Trail. From there it was only 16.62 miles along the Under-the-Rim Trail to Bryce Point. Makes for a long day hike but you really get to see alot of the Park. I did this hike with my son Lance, Bristol Ellington, Randy Lamb, Jeff & Tyson Stokes, Curtis, Troy & Austin Steadman, Skyler Sudweeks, David Mounteer, Ben Anderson, Jared Kuntz, Josh Sillitoe, Michael Cureton, Seth Twitchell, and Craig Gimbel.

Under The Rim Southern Section  Sucess!

Was dropped off at Whiteman Trailhead. Lost the trail while descending into Willis Creek and spent more than an hour trying to find it. Made it to Rainbow Point. Did not see a single person all day long.
