Nice area. Lots of other trails. I Would like or come back in the spring

Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos. The views at the start are phenomenal, and as you hike down into the valley, they get even more unique and interesting. The trail is really easy to follow. Wall Street was open for us and was a fun, although very short and super steep, slot canyon. We added on Peekaboo Loop - fantastic!

Loved this hike! If you can climb a ladder, this is DEFINITELY worth it to check out. Way less crowded than the NPs, and gorgeous views all around.

Beautiful hike at the end of November (11/30/18). Heavy snow kept us from attempting the last quarter mile but I was playing it safe with my girlfriend. It's doable but slick. Really enjoyed the canopied hiking and rushing creek.

Amazing Trail!

Our first hike in the area! Waterfall Canyon did not dissappoint. There is snow on the ground pretty much the last half mile which adds to the difficulty although it's still an easy enough hike. Falls are frozen pretty good at this point and make for great photos. Thank you to the property owners who let the public on their lands.

Great sunrise spot. The glow of the sun on the arch is beautiful. The view of canyons behind the arch is also lovely. The trail is very short and takes less than 20 minutes to walk to the arch and easy to follow. Going in mid November was great to miss the crowds but there was still about 10 of us at the arch for sunrise

October 2018- Amazing trail! We parked at sunset point and saw a beautiful sunrise over the hoodoos with a sparse crowd. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. You really feel like you are on another planet. Highly recommend. Every corner you turn you’ll want to take a picture! Took us a little under 2 hours.

A quick and short hike. The views of the arches are beautiful, a nice brisk fall day to be out on the trail.

Great trail but it is a little iffy if you have big dogs. We took our golden and he LOVED it. The rock wall you have to climb and the ladder were too much for him and I couldn’t lift all 85 lbs of him up it. The rest in our party made it up fine to see the remaining 1/4 mile and you can still see the arches from the area right before the wire guide climb.

So glad we did it. Met a fellow full-timer on the trail and talked for an hour afterwards as we gazed at the AMAZING amount of stars.

Simple Trail with a few signs indicating surrounding vegetation. Nice view of canyon through arch. For more details and pics visit: https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

Beautiful hike, shaded in the summer, open to the sun in some spots in winter.
Small bits of the path are icy/slushy right now, but most of it is nice fluffy fresh snow. Took about 3 hours up and back.

One of the most amazing views is at sunrise. Definitely worth getting up early for!

Nice moderate trail with some switchbacks to get up to the rock. Some benches have been put up at the top, which makes for a nice place to stop and rest. The trail is especially breathtaking in the fall. Accessible all year long. The trail is also really fun in the winter with the snow. Lots of people hike and bike the trail though, so watch out for bikers!

We parked our car at Sunrise Point parking lot. Started our hike from Queen Garden trail to Navajo trail and end at Sunset Point. The loop is a little under 4 miles and easy. Beautiful trails with amazing hoodoo. Highly recommend if you have time to hike for 2-3 hours.

Did about half of the trail as a run, in part because when i started at sunrise it was about -13c. Absolutely one of the coolest places ive hiked. Strongly recommend. I also ventured off on peekaboo loop for an extra couple of miles to complete the "hike the hoodoos challenge." Well worth the extra distance.

Absolutely worth a visit while you’re in Moab! Not as crowded as Arches NP and you get some great panoramas from various parts of the trail. Enjoy!

A beautiful hike. It is recommended to start from sunrise point and ends at sunset point. It's a 0.5 mile walk along the rim to go back to sunrise point. Gives you some nice views all through out. You walk 0.8 miles down hill the queens garden trail, about 0.6 mile on flat surface and take the novajo trail uphill. It's a steep but doable hike. Definitely recommend. Weather was perfect with the sun playing hide and seek. Jackets and ear muffs helped us stay warm.

great easy hike. if you have a dog there is a ladder and metal cable climb. I would recommend a pack with a handle for the dog as it made it simple to pull her up. I went at 8am and had the trail to myself!

Nice trail .05 mil look amazing

This is an easy trail. A couple climbs using a cable rope and a short ladder but still easy. It’s about 2.5 miles round trip to the arch so wear the right shoes. Very worthwhile.

This was a fun hike. We strolled at a leisurely pace and enjoyed the sites. I can see why this is the most popular hike in Bryce. Highly recommended for families

Great views, fairly easy hike, super crowded.

Trail a little rough to find for a short distance up a wash. Beautiful destination!

Completed the loop by taking Wall Street, the slot canyon to the right of the fork. Missed seeing Thor's Hammer that way, but the slot canyon was so unique (and usually closed by this time of year). It was a bit crowded in the canyon, but crowds started to thin out as we made our way onto the Queen's Garden portion of the trail. Spectacular scenery! I can see why this is called a "must do" for Bryce Canyon.

Ditched the truck 1.2 miles down the access road (before the bathroom and parking lot) due to heavy snowfall. Ended up following the road up to the peak. It was a gentle, steady incline up. Not sure I would have called this 0.2 trail much of a hike without the added portion we did. Beautiful views of the area, particularly of the Brian Head ski resort.

Started this trail at 9am on a sunny November morning. Patches of ice and a snow field situated on the downward slopping section of the trail made for a nerve-wracking hike in some sections. Should have brought the yaktracks (and ended up going off trail for a portion due to the slippery paths). Views are absolutely spectacular, though. Enjoyed having the trail to ourselves (unlike in Bryce Canyon NP).

Nice short hike, a bit washed out with some loose rock areas. Views are well worth it!

We completed this hike on September 19th and it was an awesome experience. The hike up the canyon was a steady gradient with lots of rocks but it was easily manageable and the views were spectacular. I appreciated the amount of shade in the canyon and the cool air made it the perfect temperature. We initially overshot the Art Nord trail and had to double back to make the loop but it wasn't a huge deal. The Art Nord section of the trail was packed dirt with more excellent canyon views. Overall this was an awesome fall hike and I look forward to completing it again in the future.

We hiked this trail on September 5th and it was a beautiful fall hike. The trail was mostly dirt and it varied between loose and hard packed on the hike up. The lake was very pretty and we saw a mother moose with two calves drinking from the lake. While the trail doesn't have an official end to it, the views on the way up were amazing and I look forward to hiking this trail again.
