A fantastic hike with incredible views. I went counterclockwise on the loop and at the top of the first climb there is a view that makes the entire hike more than worth it. Certainly a hard hike, with lots of up and down switchbacks, but “peakaboo” moments around every bend.

There isn’t much elevation change-but it sure is a pretty walk with views all around. The name of the trail is fitting and it’s well marked. You can also bring dogs and the terrain isn’t rough at all.. my pup sure enjoyed getting out!

Very nice out-and -back trail. Maybe moderate instead of easy. I only dock it a star in comparison to more challenging and more stunning hikes in the park. But very nice views and the Tower Bridge formation is a nice reward. Not heavy traffic. When I did it, some walking on snow and one sunny section very muddy.

This was one of the best hikes I have ever done. Did it a little differently than the description. Started at Sunrise Point and the heavily-trafficked Queen’s Garden Loop. Then cut off (on Navajo Trail) to join the Peekaboo Loop. Did half of that, then took the steep Bryce Point trail to the top of the rim. Then back down that trail and onto the other half of Peekaboo. Finally, back up the Navajo to Sunset Point. Every turn brought a new stunning vista. I took hundreds (literally) of pics. Lots of walking on snow and some icy patches, so putting some kind of traction aid on your boots will help. Total time: a little over five hours. (Leave off Bryce Point add-on for a shorter but still spectacular hike.) park at Sunset point and walk to Sunrise to start so that your car will be waiting for you at the end.

We stopped through on our way to Boulder from Kanab. It’s definitely a great stop, and we had the trail all to ourselves. More than worth the $8 entry fee.

Great views, very varied terrain, and good stopping points if you need them. It was pretty mild in the winter, but traction devices are probably necessary for at least part of the trail.

One of my favorite hikes ever.

on Arches Trail

Had the place to myself and thoroughly enjoyed thus fun little hike!

Caught sunrise at Bryce Pt and then drove over to sunset point since the visitor’s center told me to take Navajo to Peekaboo at this time. I’ve done the Navajo/Queens Garden loop before and its so stunning it doesn’t get old. I wore my creepers because of the initial descent but not sure if needed after that since traction on the snow on Fairyland the day before wasn’t an issue. Like every hike I’ve done in Bryce every moment is breathtaking. Highly recommended

This is such a cool slot canyon hike! Went at the very end of November and a lot of the creek was completely iced over. But if you’re slow and careful, you can still see a good bit of the slot canyons! The road to get there is pretty rough, but definitely do-able in AWD.

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.

on Rim Trail

It was cool to see, but the rim has the same views the entire time.

Loved this loop. Super varied, mostly flat and with great sights. Perfect for jogging around.

Highly recommended.

Really enjoyable trail. Lots to see and pretty varied landscape and rock formations. Don’t miss Cool Cave. Didn’t see any other hikers but did bump into some cyclists.

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.

Loved this trek! Passageways that open up into an amazing canyon (working clockwise) and the view of the windows is impressive. Not much traffic.

Great way to see the canyon as a whole. Start at sunset point for a slight drop in elevation along the route

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.

This was a mostly level hike up a stream bed. There was only a small stream in October, but without waterproof hiking shoes, feet would still have been wet! Great, rewarding and relaxing hike; lots of slot canyons, two waterfalls, and wonderful fall foliage.

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

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

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.

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

Wonderful hike with great views.

Did this trail last Sunday. It snowed the entire time, and the crowds were very light. Amazing views all around!!

This is an amazing hike! We did it spontaneously without any research and where very impressed with the views!
As Im reading all the coments about crowds, I can suggest to get there in afternoon as we did today. Started the loop around 15 and did run into ~15 people.

Every turn was amazing. A must do if you visit Bryce.

Loved this longer loop hike!! Bryce is such a special and unique park. I would absolutely recommend this hike to anyone who has the time! It’s a great way to really see Bryce up close.

This is not the Red Canyon (aka Peek-a-boo Canyon), where the trailhead is on US-89 about 10 miles north of Kanab, Utah.

First thing, Turn Left into creek from trail. We hiked about 1.5 miles each way, went through maybe 6 slot sections, easy hike with good reward. We were told no more slots so were ok going back at that point. 6 miles on dirt road rough but passable. Water level was prefect, small stream.

Excellent views on this trail! Looks like another planet. Keep in mind there are an EXTREME amount of people on this trail. I got started on a Wednesday at 8am, decided to do the peekaboo trail and also the Navajo trail in one hike. Probably passed 400+ people and 50+ horses by the time I got back at noon. Excellent hike but its overwhelming how many people get on this and the Navajo trail.
