Never made it to the trailhead huge ****warning**** to anyone going there are parts of the road to the trailhead that have 2-3 feet of straight sand that one must try to cut through. We came upon a car that was stuck tried to get around then and unfortunately us in an SUV and two other cars got stuck couldn’t make it past two miles into the road leading to trailhead due to the unexpected Indiana jones sand dunes. Have fun!

Beautiful hike on a well marked well travelled trail. We left sunrise point for Queens at 7:30am when crowds were minimal and weather was comfortable. We decided to go up Wall Street instead of Navajo and we were so glad we did!!!! Lots of shade and fabulous rock formations! By the time we were back to the rim most of the tourist busses were just starting to unload so we avoided the onslaught of people! This hike is a must do in Bryce!!!

Fairly easy trail, gradual up and down elevation as opposed to straight up. The cool river bed area was over run with silk worms and caterpillars. It should be beautiful in the next few weeks when the butterflies come out. Gorgeous waterfall! But wow, the water was cold!!

friggen amazing. i went to the two bridges as well as part of the loop. its worth it

great short hike, nice slot canyon. road in a bit of a drive but keeps the crowds away. if you're into rocks and geology, a interesting walk.

Amazing views. Carry lots of water, as climb up is all at once.

Easy access to a slot canyon as you can walk right in. It's very popular and apparently horse traffic is allowed because the slot was filled with horse poop. It was a fun, easy hike.

Combined this loop with Peakaboo. If you want to thoroughly experience the area, I'd recommend it.

Great hike to see Bryce!

Great hike. Beautiful views of God’s creation. Started 8:30am and went Sunset point down Navajo loop and Wall Street then Queen’s Garden then back up Sunrise point then Rim trail back to car. Did get a bit crowded as morning wore on but views are worth it.

Amazing hike with amazing reward.

Very nice easy hike with portions of slot style canyon. Did hike late afternoon with my daughters. Passed only a few other hikers so not crowded at all, liked that as well. Creek eventually goes dry after about mile and half. But still very nice.

Loved this hike! It was very challenging and worth every minute of that awful 26mi wash board road drive.

Go early, pack plenty of water, and wear a hat! I would rate this hard, but I'm out of shape so gauge accordingly.

Nice loop through some amazing formations. Better to go early in the day, as it can get warm and lots of people can be on the trails.

Great easy hike. BEAUTIFUL slot canyons. Serene if you time it right.

Gorgeous! Get there early to avoid the sun and the crowds. We arrived at sunrise and the lighting was perfect, had the trails practically to ourselves. Amazing hike

Amazing hike. Family loved it. Water was cold and refreshing. Packed in lunch and a blanket. The sand is a little slow but just keep chugging. Worth every second of family time and hike time. Bring more water than you think you need.

I did Navajo - Peek-a-boo - Bryce Point and then reconnected with Peek-a-boo and Navajo on my way back to loop it all together. Navajo was a beautiful trail that allows you to see the heart of the canyon. The problem is, which I've seen in other reviews, is the amount of tourists. We're talking busloads of tourists who are obnoxiously loud and have no trail courtesy. It caught me off guard so don't let it happen to you too. Just continue onto Peek-a-boo and you'll be amazed.

We did this hike starting at 3 p.m. on a hot day in June. The first 40 minutes required stops for water breaks, but then the canyon provides shade for the rest until the falls, which are amazing! We stayed for an hour at the water with only 5-15 other people around. It felt like the falls belonged to just us. Being later in the day, the hike back was completely in the shade. It's a must if you're doing Staircase!

Just keep going and the crowds thin out and you get some great views!

Awesome hike! Wasn't crowded but was definitely really hot in the summer. Bring lots of water.

A good trail, but incredibly busy in the summer. It was not very challenging except on the final switchbacks on Wall Street (I went clockwise). The views were pretty for sure and Wall Street was a great sight. It was just way too busy in the summer.

Absolutely gorgeous! I’d recommend starting at Queen’s Garden and then go through Navajo Loop. It’s a more gentle hike back up. Hiking down through QG was direct sunlight and the rocks were lit beautifully. Ending with Navajo Loop was a good recovery so we weren’t hiking back up in the direct sunlight. Loved it!

Neat area to wander around in for awhile. Lots of little side trails to explore, with cool rock formations. There is no water at the park.

Really fun hike, tunnel slot had 16in of freaking cold water in it and a small pool just past it. The water was a great break from the 90' heat. Zebra was dry but very cool inside.
There is a rock arrow marking the entrance to tunnel out on the wash. Only trouble we had was getting a 70lb dog over the rock fall just past the pool.
Overall a great hike! Take twice as much water as you think you'll need. Me and the dog blew through 6 liters!

The hike begins with a bang so don’t miss the first carvings into the soft stone and little waterfalls about 200 yards past the trailhead. The first 2 miles or so are like walking through a giant serenity fountain with the burbling of the creek echoing off the canyon walls, punctuated by an occasional bird song. Pause and listen with your mouth closed if you want to really appreciate this hike. Despite what other reviewers noted, we saw very little horse manure, but that certainly will vary depending on whether or not a group with horses went through the day before you, or if it’s been weeks. We hiked June 10, temp was about 80 by late morning, and by about 2 miles in the creek dries. The last part of the hike in has a very different character because of that and is also much more open. It’s a level hike and easy. Highly recommend.

Hiked this trail in the early morning and it was nice. Definitely take water!! I am a heavy water drinker and ran through 4L over the course of the hike at 96 degrees F. There is no shade and no elevation differences as you hike in the wash the entire way. There is a 2WD parking before the wash crosses the road, and a 4WD about 0.5mile up the road. Either works but just be wise and be prepared for the elements. Hoodoos on the west side but beautiful features on the east side.

Started the trail around 11:30am. Took the advice of others and started at Sunset Point instead of Sunrise. Hiking back out at Sunrise was still a bit tough, especially with the extra weight of kids (I was carrying our 12.5lb baby and husband had our 35lb toddler) but it did seem like a gradual climb and we made it out alive! Lots of sunshine but enjoyed many areas of shade along the way. The views are absolutely breathtaking. Definitely recommend!

Did this trail (counterclockwise) in the late afternoon on 6/9. Aside from the crowds, the descent down on the Navajo Trail was out of this world. Feels like you’re on another planet. A must do in Bryce.
