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.

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.

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.

Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

This whole park is amazing.

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 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.

Water in the slot kept it interesting.
Be prepared with neoprene socks and dry cloths for the hike out. Amazing texture in the rocks

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!

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

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

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.

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.

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

I’m glad we came down through Wall Street on the Navajo Loop as it met up with the Queen’s Garden Loop. Others were coming from the other direction and I thought the switchbacks and entrance to Wall Street was more majestic coming down onto it instead of coming up it.

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.

Popular trail with amazing views. Get an early start to beat the crowds!

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