This trail is a 3 mile loop leading from the main Kodachrome road to Panorama Point and back. Its mostly flat as can be, but it climbs just a bit to give you the full view of Panorama Point- a mixture of pink cliffs, oddly shaped rocks and mountains in the distance.
I liked this trail since it was well marked, easy to follow and had scenery virtually everywhere. The trail passes the amusing Fred Flintstone Rock and moves onward toward the wide open vista. En route, you'll also see a sign that reads "ancient Indian cave." Nothing spectacular here, just a large hole in the rock that is presumably a cave. From there, the trail continues past more stiking chimney formations before heading out to Panorama Point. Its an easy trail that can be done without difficulty in about an hour.
The Eagle's View Trail is an extremely steep climb to, well, a birds eye view of the park. The trail has a 40 or 45 percent grade, I forget which, but its a pretty tough climb up a narrwo trail along a rocky slope. I wouldn't recommend this one if the trail is snowy or icy, but, fortunately, this area was snow free. Still, it was a pretty shaky uphill. Keep in mind too that Kodachrome is situated at 5,000 plus feet elevation, about what you'd find in Denver. This kind of uphill will get your heartrate elevated pretty quickly if you're from sealevel.
But after your legs stop burning, you'll be treated to a view of Kodachrome in all its colorful rock splendor.
Favorite thing: The Canonville Visitor's Center provides information about Kodachrome, Grand Staircase-Escalante and other parks in this region. It has limited hours and is only open seasonally, but makes a good stopping point (if open) to get information about hiking, camping or other activities in this region.
Favorite thing: Kodachrome is located about 22 miles east of Bryce. To get there, take hwy 12 east to Canonville and take a right. A winding, twisting road continues onward from there and leads into the park. It takes approximately 30 minutes to reach Kodachrome from Bryce Canyon.
