Birdseye Trail is a 1.8 mile out and back trail that sees fairly heavy traffic. It's a pupular path, so be sure to keep a firm grip on your dog's leash. You're going to have to share the road with everyone from fellow hikers to cyclists. Obeying the leash rules will help keep everyone safe. Remember that you have to walk back as far as you go in, so if the hike starts to feel too much for you, turn back right away.
Birdseye Trail begins west of the visitor's center. There you'll find parking for your vehicle, restrooms, and answers to any questions you may have. Bring a friend with you to hold your dog while you go inside the visitor's center! You can also grab a trail map. This is a great idea even if you're sticking to a relatively short and simple trail like Birdseye.
Once you've passed the sign post and have entered Red Canyon Birdseye Trail, tilt your head back. You should be able to see the trail's namesake soon! One of the hoodoos (a rough stone column of varying thickness, almost like a totem pole) near the beginning of the trail has a top shaped like a bird's head! From there, you'll follow a smooth, even hard packed dirt trail. Turn back when you hit signs for the Red Canyon Loop!
Red Canyon Birdseye Trail is a beautiful trail to snap a selfie with your pup!
