Easy for kids and beautiful. I didn’t love the dirt road to get there.

We did the walk from 4pm to 6pm. Amazing surroundings with distinctively variety of views of hoodoos.

You practically have to do this trail only because the shuttles dump you off almost on it; and, the view has you looking down into the hoodoos.Plus, the perspective is particularly good if you're going to continue to walk down into the valley.
This trail is ideal for families - not too hard, not too much grade, and short.

Gorgeous trail. It takes you down, so you can walk among the hoodoos.

Awesome trail beautiful views and not to bad of a hike

Definitely not easy on the way back up but beautiful!

Starting just after Sunrise, we descended down through Wall Street (to the right) from Sunset Point, then along the river, and connected with the Queen's Garden trail. We met Queen Victoria - it's amazing how the picture looks just like her silhouette. Sun and shadow cast amazing glows on the rocks. We climbed back up to Sunrise point and then walked the Rim trail back to Sunset point. Highly recommended the Queen's Garden trail as it's the flagship hike in Bryce!

Go as early in the morning as possible to avoid the heat in midsummer. Watching the morning light fill the canyon is a treat.

Incredible! The views above and below are magical! The ascent is challenging, but easily done with a short break or two.

Beautiful hike! Did it with my 60 year old mother in about an hour and 15 minutes. Absolutely stunning.

This was an easy breezy hike with some amazing views of the hoodoos. The trail breaks off to other trails with clear signs all along the way. You hike down first and then back up.

Great hike. Make it easier by starting at the switchbacks

Hiked only a section of this wonderful trail

Very scenic road with great scenic overlooks.

Did this today and loved it! Reasonably trafficked, but not so much that you didn’t have some peace and quiet too. Amazing scenery and not too tricky! Proper boots would be recommended if you have them though :)

We began around 7:30 am, and were able to park at Fairyland Point. This was an ideal starting point because it broke up some of the more intense climbing, and also provided us an opportunity to pause at the General Store 2.5 miles into the loop traveling counter-clockwise. We chose counter-clockwise based on recommendations we read here and that is sound advice! Starting early as we did, we were able to watch the sunrise as we worked the Rim trail portion of the Loop, and it is truly other-worldly! Spectacular views of the hoodoos and canyons on one side, forests and what almost feels like plains on the right for several miles before you descend into the canyon. Though the trail is rated 'hard', it was our experience as women of varied average to above average levels of fitness within our trio, that the most difficult section was mile 6.5-8 but was otherwise very accessible. Be ready for that serious climb in full sun around mile 6! Also, even subtracting our .25 side trip to the General Store, we felt this trail was longer than the 7.4 miles listed. We were able to complete the full loop, including the General Store break, in just over 4 hours. There was also a small stretch around mile 5-6 where you will experience drop-offs on both sides of the trail, nothing razor thin like an Angel's Landing, but if heights are a problem for you, I'm not suggesting you avoid it, but be ready to do some mental work and power stepping for about twenty feet!

This is a must-see if you need a slot canyon fix or want to get off the beaten path! There is no cell service, so make sure you have driving directions, inform your people of your plans, and have checked the weather before you leave the highway. The road to the trail head is an adventure in and of itself; a couple creek crossings, some soft steep climbs, gravel/sand/mud the entire way. We started around 8 am, walked out 2.2 miles and then turned back, seeing only two other hiking parties during the 2 hours we spent on the trail. Incredible photo opportunities, beautiful icy cold water, and every slot is a little different than the one that came before. Easily done with families, I would recommend a water resistant shoe; some sucking mud and clay, and a couple of deeper spots to cross. Water was just a few inches in most places on the day of our visit.

Great hike, we returned by the navajo loop switchbacks at Wall Street, definately would have been easier to return by Queens trail.

Amazing trail! My old father in law, who is a fairly experienced hiker, said it was the best hike he’s ever done.

An amazing trail. Well worth the climb back out of the canyon.

Easy trail suitable for families. Not as much shade as you might think, especially at midday. Wear your water shoes and enjoy!

Amazing views for a short hike! Took us less than an hour, but we did break a sweat on the way up.

If you hike counter-clockwise from Sunset Point, you will begin by descending into the amphitheater. Once in the amphitheater the trail is mostly gentle slopes and is well defined, though rough at times. Depending on the season, there are several places you may need to ford moving water. You can take a brief detour to the Tower Bridge formation if you like. Eventually you will find yourself on a moderate-strenuous climb to Fairyland Point on the rim, and will continue on the Rim Trail, which is mostly gentle but has a couple more moderate-strenuous climbs and then descents. The views are spectacular! You get up close and personal with beautiful hoodoos and the most incredible vistas you could ask for!

Very fun hike my 8 yr old enjoyed every bit of it the drive is a 6 mile dirt road not a bad drive though fun slot canyon the slot canyon is relative short but fun ....

Easy but scenic hike.

Great hike! Showed up fairly early at 7 and didn't feel it was too crowded yet. Combined with parts of the Queen's Garden. By the time we reached the switchbacks by Wall Street, around 9:30, it was packed going up the switchbacks. Probably best to get there by 6 AM.

Great short trail for a closer look at the canyon and hoodoos. Very busy - highly recommend this isn't your only trail in the park, so you can take a moment to appreciate the place without the crowds. It's a five star short trail, but the crowds knock it down a bit.
