The hike down has grand views, incredible geologic features and a wide variety of vegetation. The Hat Shop has unusual hoodoos with large cap rocks. There are Bristlecone Pines on the ridge on the way down from Bryce Point and cacti along the trail at the lower elevations near the campsite. A wide variety of wildflowers can be seen along the trail in the spring and summer.
