Description

The trail starts on the western side of the road and heads towards the rock formations straight ahead. When you reach the first junction, stay on the right and follow the signs. You'll pass the Ballerina Spire and the Hat Shop, two interesting geological features. After passing the Secret Passage spur on the right, the trail makes a sharp left turn and heads south. After half a mile, you reach another major junction. Panorama Point is straight ahead. To follow the trail, make a sharp left turn. Reach the junction you passed earlier to return to the trailhead.

Throughout the entire trail you can enjoy magnificent views of Kodachrome Basin State Park as well as the surrounding mountains. You can even get a glimpse of a few amphitheaters in Bryce Canyon National Park.
