Paul Bunyan's Potty
All of the trails lead from the rim of the canyon into the depths and eventually reach the bottom. There is a 1.8 mile (2.9 km) Bryce Creek trail that leads to the east boundary. Along this route, you'll peer into numerous side canyons, less ornate than those near the rim. As you walk down into the canyon, you'll be passing the newest spires and walls. With each step, you'll be walking forward (or is it backward) in time. The spires become less ornate, the walls shorter and simpler. Then you'll see the canyons widening out and the wall less imposing. When you reach the east boundary, you'll be in a forest of pines, having travelled back to the oldest part of the canyon, or forward to what 'today's' rim will look like in the future.
Winter on the canyon
Most travelors won't be in the area during the winter, but winter offers some unique opportunities. The south road to Rainbow Point is closed to traffic and becomes a 17 mile (27.4 km) one-way cross country ski trail that rises from 7,000 to 9,000 ft (2,134 to 2,743 m) in elevation.
