Bryce Canyon National Park in southwestern Utah is one of the strangest, weirdest, most beautiful National Parks in the Southwest. Bryce Canyon is a giant natural amphitheater along the Paunsaugunt Plateau created from millions of years of erosion. The unique area has hundreds of tall hoodoos (tall, thin spires of rocks). The region was originally settled by Native Americans and later by Mormon pioneers.

If you can only do ONE thing at Bryce, this is it!! Very cool place, like being in another world! Tons of photo ops! Hike back up will make you suck air, it is steep., generally pretty smooth dirt & pebbles, can get busy!

Probably my favorite day hike I've ever been on.... Couldn't imagine having done this hike in the "film" era of photography, you could not carry enough! I was lucky enough to get in there on a warm day in february with low traffic and managable snow. If you go during this time, do wear boots and have some snow/Ice strap-ons to keep it safe. What a beautiful, seemingly alien landscape!

Fun beautiful hike with many different rock formations to observe! It is a pretty hot trail with not much shade so bring water! This would be a good hike for families as it is pretty easy and not many dangerous areas like other hikes in the area.

We took this trail because parking in Fairyland Canyon was free, compared to the $30 entrance fee for the rest of the canyon. It was about 2.7 miles from Fairyland Canyon to Sunrise Point along this trail, and the view was breathtaking as we got closer to the point! It was a win-win; free parking plus an extra hike!

Easy trail, very crowded on either end for decent/accent. As with most national parks get 1/4 mile out as fast as possible to thin out crowd

Did this hike years ago with family! Loved this hike! Great introduction to canyon hiking for those who have not done canyon hiking! Absolutely beautiful especially as the sun sets. Love all the different colors and rock formations! Definitely going to make a trip back here!

Just did this over the 4th with family. it was such a amazing and gorgeous hike. it was a bit steep at times, but worth it. we took my 78 year old grandpa and 5 year Olds with us. take your time, remember you are at 11,000 feel from sea level. the hair is thin.
