Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos - done in combination with Queens Garden Trail and Navajo Loop Trail. The trail is really easy to follow. We ended up going counter-clockwise, which seemed to have slightly less of the intense switchbacks uphill. But there is still a lot of up and down - so it’s tough to tell. Either way, it’s a gorgeous hike and really fun.

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!

Amazing Trail!

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.

I did this trail 2 days ago without really knowing what I was getting myself into. My two friends had a permit they got months ago and I added onto it the day before which was great but I didn’t have the opportunity to do much research. The other reviewers on here are really down playing the difficulty level of this trail. With numbers like 7 miles and 1200’ of elevation change I thought this would be a breeze but I was happily surprised by the challenging terrain. After the 400’ incline getting down the canyon you are in and out of walking in the river, along with constantly climbing over boulders the entire way up. The way back kept the fun going until you get back to the wall you have to climb up to get out of the canyon. This hike was a challenge that I enjoyed every minute of! Definitely now one of my all time favorite hikes. I was very happy I rented dry pants and neoprene socks for this trail although at the beginning I questioned if that decision was really necessary. I am usually a fast hiker but this trail took me a full 8 hours with very few breaks!

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.

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.

Ended up doing clockwise but was still amazing. I wasn’t aware that part of the trail is actually in designated park wilderness. Not a big deal. Trail is super easy to follow. Was not crowded in the least.

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.

Don’t be fooled by the relatively smooth paths. Switchbacks, multiple elevation gains and losses make this a challenging hike. Variation of geology and scenery make this one of the best (maybe the best) hike in the park. Head clockwise at trailhead for best views on descent.

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.

A very fun trail, good for almost any level of experience hiker. The initial decent into the canyon is he only “hard” part that could be challenging on the way back up. But for any reasonably fit person it’s super fun. We did it two days before thanksgiving and rented dry socks, boots, and dry pants which I think was totally worth it to be able to walk through the water and play around. It was about 40-50 degrees and just a tiny bit cold on the feet but once you’re moving we stayed very warm and we’re not at all uncomfortable. There were people that did it with regular boots on and managed to stay dry it just takes a little longer to navigate around the water at times. In terms of timing it took us about 5 hours to complete. Started at 8am and finished around 2pm. We stopped to take photos about 3 times for approximately 10 minutes each time and a 20 minute lunch break. Would love to come back and do this in the summer!!!

This hike did not disappoint! started at 9 am and finished by 430, but we really really took our time. the weather was gorgeous and our hiking boots and smart wool socks were fine for the hike. perhaps bring an extra pair of socks or get neoprene if youre worried. this time of year the water didnt even touch our ankles. be prepared to climb and navigate
the hike is not too difficult but definitely is technical. also, be prepared to work your butt off when Climbing back out.

one of my favorite hikes ever

Another wonderful hike in Zion. This was a long day hike. We felt the warnings that came with this hike might have been overkill. “Route finding required” basically just means there isn’t a paved path; there’s multiple paths braiding both sides of the river. Other than the hike in and out of the valley, the hike is not challenging, but it is still a long day.

The subway was rad, and a main reason for visiting Zion. It’s a must do trip if you can get a permit.

This trail was amazing! The Queen Victoria formation really looks like Queen Victoria. You have a choice of going up the Two Bridges trail or the Wall Street trail to finish the loop. I did Two Bridges. Wall Street is the “slot canyon.” I saw a Steller’s Jay and a chipmunk.

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.

The view of the switchbacks looking down on Navajo is amazing!

Short hike with a beautifully groomed trail. Waterfall was dead when we passed through but totally worth the hike!

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.

Beautiful hike the whole way through. It's a bit strenuous, but is most definitely worth it.

Definitely wouldn’t rate this trail as hard. I’d say its more like moderate. The hardest part is climbing back up the steep canyon, took a few stops to catch my breath. Bring water shoes and water socks makes it a bit easier on yourself. We had water leggings also but did not wear them. We didn’t get into the water at the end to see the water fall as it’s October and it was too cold. Bring snacks, a good pair of hiking shoes to hike in then bring something water proof to change into. If you are debating on bringing your professional camera you can it will be safe make sure you have a dry bag for extra safety. We did this hike late as we drove that morning 4 hours to get there and also had a difference in an hour in the time change. We began around 1130 which the ranger said we are starting off late after picking up permits, and we got out around 530pm. It was cold but we layered and were ok

If you only have one hike to do, do this one.

Very nice very steep! Landscape is captivating! Amazing formations around every bend! A must see

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.
