Description

The Photo Trail is a short trail that climbs 90 feet to a ridge where there are sweeping views to the east and south of Red Canyon and of the Sevier River Valley to the west. It starts from a turnout about 0.5 miles west of the Visitor Center or you could connect to it from a short ways up the Birdseye Trail #33097.

There is a very steep trail of use continuing straight ahead from the high point of the trail. It is easy to miss the sharp turn to the right for the real trail.
