Bryce Point to Peekaboo Connector Trail Closure
Due to a large rockslide, the connecting trail from Bryce Point to Peekaboo Loop is closed. Trail will be reopened once repairs are made. The Peekaboo Loop is open, but must be accessed from Sunset or Sunrise Point.
Backcountry Campsite Closures
Due to bear activity at select campsites in Bryce Canyon's backcountry, multiple backcountry campsites have been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek, Swamp Canyon, Natural Bridge, Iron Spring, Corral Hollow, Riggs Spring and Yovimpa Pass.
Right Fork Yellow Creek Camp Site
This site is a sheltered, peaceful spot next to a gurgling stream. There is a large Ponderosa Pine on the site, many Juniper trees, along with Gambel Oak and Greenleaf Manzanita. It is 3.0 miles (4.8 km) from the Bryce Point parking lot and 1300 feet (396 m) lower.
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.
