That ought to keep you busy for a few days.
Spooky is a real gut scraper. You literally have to scooch sideways...
(This is NOT the narrowest section!)
Other H.I.T.R. area highlights include Zebra, Neon/ (A bit of a hike. Explore the lower section of Choprock or Ringtail if you need more excercise!), Egypt3 (hike down 'till you threaten to get stuck ), the classic Peek-a-Boo/Spooky Loop (throw in Tunnel if time/energy allow), Dinosaur footprints, Devil's Garden (pre-dawn and sunrise), several nice arches, as shown above, and about a zillion other places.
Closer to Bryce, a super easy and quite pretty hike is Willis Creek. Check that Skutumpah Rd is in decent shape (ask at the Canonville GSENM center). The creek is maybe 45 minutes from town. If you're feeling adventuresome, make it a Twofer and check out Bull Valley Gorge. (Semi-technical in places, depending on recent rainfall, etc. Some scrambling and crawling. In other words, LOTS of fun!)
