The trail is truly amazing. This was my first encounter with Bryce Canyon National Park and I'm stunned. Wow! The hike is rather easy, perfect for part of a day. It'd be nice though if there were some places to seat so one could enjoy the Park.

Perfect hike for beginners! Easily accessible with pretty views!

Good hike. It’s a good warmup before the water in The Narrows cools you off.

Amazing hike, I really liked it. I'd say do fairytale and this loop. This is NOT a hard hike, moderate. Bryce viewpoint is great, and going down there is equally cool. Worth it!

Wow, this is amazing! Great hike, easy for the distance. The gain is very moderate and offers amazing views. I started from sunrise point at about sunrise. It was good so that the trail was essentially empty and not too warm. This is the most amazing hike around Bryce (as far as I know)

Awesome views, way less populated than Queens Garden/Navajo loop. Steady incline at times, totally worth it

I did this to get to the narrow. The narrow is worth it, so therefore doing this is also worth it - but this is the extremly boring and crowded part. Impossible to skip for the narrow so do it, but otherwise not worth it - there are better easy hike in zion

I did Angels landing as an extra loop to the West rim trail/telephone canyon. Angel landing itself is great, but a little too crowded. From bus stop to top, then back down, it took me 2 hours. Go as early as possible (went there with the 4th bus of the day, and already starting to be annoying). The trail is NOT hard - more like moderate - but there is a 1500 feet gain so you need to be ok with that. Although it can be narrow, the holding is always extremely easy. The biggest danger is that it is too crowded and people are impatient. The view is great, so do it! Definetly in the top hikes in the area. Otherwise do observation point via east mesa trail is a good alternative overlooking angels landing.

Ran down bright angel and up south Kaibab. It is a very hard run especially if you start late (like I did). 96F at the bottom and no water on the way back up South Kaibab. Be prepared and have the right clothing as the sun is brutal. I am lucky enough to have ran in many places around the world but this is definitively in the top 3! AMAZING! Not for everyone but well worth the effort. It took me 4hours and a half for the whole loop and the milage from start to finish at 21.9miles. Enjoy responsibly !

Great trail run to be pushed physically. Start early. We decent run and allowed time for walking the ascent. Know your physical limitations and climbing altitude. I’m fit but ascent and elevation- I know my limits. It’s okay to hike your pace. You still get it done. I brought 64 ounces of water and one Gatorade. Best thing was ibuprofen. Take time to enjoy the view. Bring long shirt for morning and afternoon.

Impressive! Much of the trail is paved and offers gorgeous views! After Scout Lookout it gets ridiculous. Many places you cling to angled rock feeling for a foothold in the rock; hold the chains and pray you don’t misstep and plummet 1500 feet to your death.

Go early. Awesome hike.

Had a blast until my sandals disintegrated. Don’t be like me, heed the Park rangers advice, wear boots.

This is a great trail. We did it because wall street was closed and I am glad we did. We discovered it was difficult and at the end although glad we went we were also very tired. Between it and Navajo loop and part of Queens garden we ended up hiking 7 miles in an afternoon and that was a lot. Bryce is amazing.

So glad we did this trail - it does not disappoint! So many changes in elevation throughout the hike which I enjoy. Gives you a chance to see the park from so many viewpoints. Bryce is pure magic and I can not recommend this trail enough!

Got started before the first shuttle got there since we are staying at the lodge. Left the cabin at around 6:45 and we’re one of the first few people to the top. Recommend going in the morning as the way down had a lot of congestion.

Killer view at the top...

Great trail some rock climbing beautiful views at top.

Loved the hike. Beautiful views all hike and great trail conditions. Only issue was a few people had dogs off leashes but it didn’t take away from the hike. Will definitely be going back!

A moderate hike with resting opportunities next to very small waterfall pools. Maybe because it's not a strenuous hike, the 'traffice' is heavy. The waterfalls were also small (end of April).

Love this trail and the surrounding trails.

This is a hard trail because of the steep switch-backs. Pace yourself up this trail. Think of it in four parts. The first is the steep switch-backs up the outside of the mountain. But once you make it up that you get a break by hiking in the shade and more reasonable path back inside. But be prepared to hit the third part of the trail that takes you up shorter, but steeper switch-backs a good bit up. At the end you find the part that’s flat where you can rest and go to the bathroom. From here you can go back down or take the final leg up where you have to hold on to chains and make your way to the top on a small ledge with pausing for hikers moving back and forth up the trail.

Amazing hike

A bit muddy, but otherwise clear. Make sure to do spouting rock above the lake.

Fabulous hike. Go early to avoid the tourists in flip flops.

It’s scary. Be smart wear good shoes. Great views both directions

Started just after sunrise and had the trail to ourselves most of the time. Beautiful. Go clockwise

Absolutely breathtaking. Cannot stress enough how dangerous and difficult it is, though. If you are unsure, stop at Chicken Rock. From there, the steep drop offs begin.

amazing hike. we loved the views and the challenge. highly recommended.
