Here is another hidden trail that's not on the maps but was built as a connector for the grandview. Not sure what the status is but a lot of time was spent with flagging it and using a mini loader to cut out the trail. We rode it to the top and continued to follow it but the trail disappeared into the thick and the flags just kept on going into the woods. Not sure if they went over budget or had other priorities or trails to attend to. However it does look like it is suppose to meet up with the big hollow trail which we have yet to explore. We got up pretty far and eventually ran into a nice area with a spring and shade that would be a good ride and worth it. Here is the info.

Trail is just East of the Town of Hatch, just outside of Bryce Canyon and is reached by heading East on 100 North onto a well graded gravel road. The road will eventually head into a canyon well car traffic may want to stop. No 4x4 required but a high clearance vehicle would be the best bet. Head just over 5 1/2 miles from the town of hatch until you reach a small pull off and see a sign on your left posting "grandview trail" The trail you'll be riding is on the right and starts out faint. You'll drop in and out of a wash and catch the trail across the wash.

N 37 37 17.89 W 112 20 47.8 parking area

Trail was just over 6 miles as an out and back

Looking back towards the trailhead

First mile of trail enters aspens and pines

Creek crossing

halfway up another connector for grandview

looking out towards pink cliffs, the trail becomes more steeper

Well call this the top for now, nice place for lunch, you can see the trail out in the sage brush on the upper left

The trail does conntinue on past the pond, you'll drop down a small canyon and hang a left and begin to climb into another aspen forest before topping out shortly and descending into big hollow via big hollow trail, more info coming soon. GPX for just out and back to and from pond. 6 miles
