Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

It was a lovely drive with lots of viewpoints. I did every other viewpoint driving toward Rainbow Point and then the rest driving back so I wouldn’t be stopping at every single one and so I had something to do on the way back.

This was a nice trail. It was colder so there weren’t many people at all. It goes over a wash and up to a fork where you can see a waterfall (no waterfall right now) and the mossy cave. The cave is certainly mossy and there’s an info sign that says it’s covered in icicles in the winter. The trailhead is fairly easy to find. Go east on 12 and around one of the bends is a parking area with a sign and a little shack.

This was definitely hard. And it’s more like 8.5 miles. I started at Sunrise Point where I watched the sun rise before heading counterclockwise down the Tower Bridge trail. There are definitely more hoodoos on the amphitheater side than on the Fairyland Canyon side. The trail takes you down to Tower Bridge (a formation that really looks like Tower Bridge in London) and up Boat Mesa, then back down and around through Fairyland Canyon. It ends with a somewhat easy 2.7 mile hike on the Rim Trail.

Loved this trek! Passageways that open up into an amazing canyon (working clockwise) and the view of the windows is impressive. Not much traffic.

Absolutely amazing hike. Incredible views that aren’t anything like those in the nearby national parks. Recommend hiking counter clockwise to save the best views for the middle/end of the hike. The strenuous sections are broken up and spaced between long flat sections, which I greatly appreciated

This is an absolutely gorgeous hike with almost constant breathtaking views. This will easily be one of the prettiest hikes that you have ever been on, although it is mildly strenuous.

The waterfall had essentially no water in it (in late October) and the cave wasn't anything special. Easy, but extremely boring hike.

One of the wonders of nature
Enjoyed three hours of hiking up and down and admiring beautiful scenery
I shall go back any day

The best I have hiked. Loved it

Beautiful trail some puffing coming back up but not bad

Beautiful and one of the easier hikes in Utah in my opinion. Video one my hike with the wife here.

Great way to see the canyon as a whole. Start at sunset point for a slight drop in elevation along the route

I see this trail as the signature hike in Bryce Canyon. We started the hike at the general store and hiked counter-clockwise. This hike lets you get up close and personal with the hoodoos.It's amazing to stand right in front of a hoodoo and look up. On the strenuous scale I would rate the hike a 7 out of 10. The trail had no steep climbs but a lot of ups and downs. The only drawback we had was the mud near the general store and Fairyland Point. Overall a great hike.

Did this hike the day after a snow storm. Beautiful views, a lot of snow in the ground. Some areas were tough because of ice and slippery mud from the melting snow, trekking poles we're extremely helpful. We started and finished at Bryce point, the last mile back up is a good climb and made tougher because of the snow. it's a good hike because there were up and down areas throughout, not just straight down and the straight back up.

This was a mostly level hike up a stream bed. There was only a small stream in October, but without waterproof hiking shoes, feet would still have been wet! Great, rewarding and relaxing hike; lots of slot canyons, two waterfalls, and wonderful fall foliage.

Definitely go counterclickwise as Fairyland is lower than Sunrise. And leave a vehicle at Fairyland as the shuttle doesn't stop there. The trail between Tower Bridge and Fairyland is awesome. We walked it in the afternoon and saw hoodos that looked translucent because of reflections off the rocks. We made the mistake of thinking the shuttle stopped at Fairyland, but some very nice people have us a lift back, so we didn't need to walk yet another 2 mi. While Alltrails lists this as hard, it really is just longer than most of the moderately rated trails. Not as crowded as Queens Garden and Navajo, so peaceful.

Was able to hike it yesterday morning before the snow melted. Started at Bryce point, and the views were next to none!

Low visibility throughout the canyon. Started at Bryce point. Great views when the the sun poked through!

Awfully slimy trail as snow came early. The views cannot be beat. Hiking poles were very helpful. It definitely felt challenging at times but a great hike.

Nice up and down trail. Great views of the wall of windows and the amphitheater.

Wonderful hike with great views.

Did this trail last Sunday. It snowed the entire time, and the crowds were very light. Amazing views all around!!

Beautiful hike. Did this a couple days ago, with the queen's garden loop and then the peekaboo trail. Bryce is such a unique place, worth the effort! Take water. Wear good shoes.

This is an amazing hike! We did it spontaneously without any research and where very impressed with the views!
As Im reading all the coments about crowds, I can suggest to get there in afternoon as we did today. Started the loop around 15 and did run into ~15 people.

Left Hurricane about 0630 taking the I15 route up to Bryce. Weather was unfortunately poor. In the low 30s with rainy intermittent sleet and low clouds. Due to the weather and the time there was plenty of parking and surprisingly quite a few people out hiking. It turned out to be a great but wet hike in the canyon.
For what it’s worth I took 89 South, stopped at Red Canyon for an hour hike and then down thru Zion. Absolutely beautiful drive through the canyons. There is a section north of Glendale where the trees are a spectacular array of fall colors. just an overall fantastic drive

Every turn was amazing. A must do if you visit Bryce.

Loved this longer loop hike!! Bryce is such a special and unique park. I would absolutely recommend this hike to anyone who has the time! It’s a great way to really see Bryce up close.

Took this hike yesterday. We went counter clockwise but started from the store. At first we were happy the way we went but when we hit the last 2.5 miles on the rim trail we were not that happy. Great hike not sure which way to go!
