Bryce Canyon Map

Trail was incredible; amazing views and easy to navigate. Rate moderate to hard (mainly because I am grossly out of shape). Finished in 3.5 hours. Trail was pretty populated, but there was plenty of solitude as well.

Short hike but a really great one :-)

Belle balade de trois heures environ faite avec nos enfants (6 et 7 ans) part une belle journée d'août. Pas de difficulté particulière, sinon la dernière remontée un peu longue. De très beaux points de vue sur le parc inaccessibles depuis le haut.

Amazing hike with so much interest. I would suggest that if people leave out the side track to Bryce Point then this is a fairly comfortable hike and certainly not hard. Would be a shame if this trail was missed because of concern over hard grading. The East Rim to Observation Point in Zion was much tougher and that was graded Moderate. Overall Bryce is a unique place and this loop with the Navajo and Queens Garden will deliver most of the top sites in Bryce in my opinion.

Other worldly!

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.

Beautiful trail every step of the way. Definitely a moderate to hard hike due to elevation loss and gain but worth it. Going clockwise will give you a better view.

Awesome trail beautiful views and not to bad of a hike

Definitely not easy on the way back up but beautiful!

Awesome views.

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.

The Peek-a-boo trail has incredibly stunning views throughout. A good amount of up and down but definitely doable even for beginner hikers. I’d recommend making an 8 pattern with the two loops. Go left on Navajo, then right on Peek-a-boo and loop back the opposite way. Enjoy!

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

Great hike! It seemed like every turn made was another amazing view. We got going later than we wanted, but still had the hike mostly to ourselves. Highly recommended!

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!

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.

Long, but very manageable. And the views are a constant wonder.

Stunningly beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately hiked it alone, would be a fun experience with loved ones.

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