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 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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!

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.

Did the loop counter clockwise starting at inspiration point and walking the rim to Sunset. Took Navaho's switchback decent past marvelous natural sites like three trees climbing from floor to above the HooDoos. Joined the Queens loop at the bottom and took that to sunrise point where we caught the last shuttle back to the car. Weather was perfect and the trails only crowded at the start of Navaho. After reaching the bottom the crowds were gone. This trail combination is listed as the most popular and moderate. This is mid October and while the hotels were full it looked like our trails weren't overflowing.

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

Perfect hike if you have a limited time in Bryce! Definitely do the connecting trails if you can! Bryce is such a special and unique National Park!
