A good early morning hike and one that you don’t need the shuttle. Full sun by midday. Great views at the top.

Hiked from the South Campground. Great views of the lower part of the canyon. Stayed for sunset then hiked back to camp. Trail is easy to follow. Some steep drop offs. Great shorter hike close to the entrance without needing to get on the bus.

Beautiful hike with rewarding vistas! Fun to explore the boulders at the summit.

This is my absolute favorite hiking trail. I did not find it difficult at all, but I am a runner and in fairly good shape (but getting old!). I am also afraid of drop-off heights and this wasn't frightening to me at all. Someone suggested we stop and look back from time to time and that was great advice. Beautiful views during all three miles, looking both ways. On a sunny day? The view of the orange hoodoos takes your breath away. I so hope to return someday!

Be prepared for hiking back out. The climb is very demanding.

Beautiful hike. We started at 8:30 and there weren't too many people. By 10 there were people everywhere

Very nice landscape! Did in 2h:20 in mid-September.

a little more crowded than I like but beautiful views

Breathtaking views! So worth hiking into the canyon to get close to the hoodoos! Challenging hike if you’re not used to the altitude. Take plenty of water, and take breaks in the shade! Loved it!

Great views. Tough at the top with the optional rock climbing, but worth it.

Absolutely stunning landscape!!! It doesn’t get more beautiful than this. We went over Labor Day weekend as the sun was setting after hiking the narrows at Zion in the am and this was a true treat!!! Go!!!! Trails were a little more crowded than I like but sunset is definitely a great time to go and get amazing photos.

Did Bryce Pt to Sunset. Great views easy trip.

This was our first encounter with Zion and we loved it. If you start by 7:30am you will be in the shade the whole time.

I loved this Hike! It took 2 hours on Labor Day. There weren't too many other people on the trail. spectacular views descending from the highest point in the park. Nothing was flat--all up or down. One of the highlights of our trip. I would not want to take small kids on this one.

Hiked this on Labor Day. started at 8:00 am, 48°F, needed a jacket. Lots of steep down and up with spectacular views. Glad we didn't take the little kids with us. Hike time was 2 hours. Not a lot of other people on the trail. Definitely would recommend this hike.

Started from Patricia drive. It was a steady uphill climb from the start. I'm 51, overweight, but still managed to get to the very top on the rocks overlooking the entire area. My hikes are mostly on flat land in Austin area so this was a bit challenging. I'd rate Bishop difficulty a 5 to Cerro San Luis 3. The 20 somethings I was with had little difficulty. Once on top, it was a worth it. Surreal views of the area were incredible! Highly recommended. As others mentioned, watch out for Poison Oak and the climb was a bit on the rocky side. I have partially torn tendons in the right foot so just had to pay close attention to each step.

A very nice trail I would rate moderate. I ascended with a portion of the Valencia Peak trail to get a better workout and avoided that route down in order to save the knees. I look forward to returning in April to see the wildflowers.

Another beautiful trail, when done before 9am it can be very quite. I started at 8:30am, encountered about 6 other people along the way down, one hour to get from Bryce point to loop point, then about 1 hour up where aI encountered about 12 people along the ascent. Can be a huff and puff in some areas, but there is always a landing to catch your second wind. Not difficult if you are in good shape, a Sierra Club person, runner, of some CV fitness.

This trail was more beautiful than the Peekaboo Loop trail that can be done as a circle eight with this loop. I did this trail in about 1 hour 20 minutes. If you are looking for short and sweet this is it. Not really a challenging trail either.

This is a stunning hike! The canyon has so much to offer... towering hoodoos, a lush forest and beautiful geology. I began my hike just after sunrise and shared the trail with probably 20 other adventurers. It was a good thing, because around 10:00 am the trail gets very full!

Absolutely gorgeous! This combo loop is a must-do in Bryce.

Best hike yet!!!! Unbelievable views and best scenery ever!! Catch the sunrise at Bryce Point first and then hike peekaboo and get back early! Must do hike!!!!!

The Bishop Peak Trail from Patricia Drive is an moderate hike and the views are spectacular of the Central Coast. This hike of of the Bishop Peak Trail from Patricia Drive is well worth doing, great all year long, maybe not so much in rainy season. This video was shot in the summer so very little of both ticks and Poison Oak as hazards if you don't get too close to the sides or go off trail. Lots of wildlife if you look for it, mostly squirrels and rabbits, so hawks can always be present.
So the heading is incorrect for these two hikes and I sent in a correction. The map for the hike starts out from PAtricia Drive not Highland. The other Bishop's Peak Trail starts from Highland.
A Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.

Beautiful hike. Come early or start late to avoid the crowds. Went down wall street and came back out via Queens Garden. Scenery is outstanding. The hike is well worth it. 5 stars without the people

we did this trail together with the navajo. they were both beautiful. if you start around 8 am you can finish both in around 3 hrs.
