Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos. The views at the start are phenomenal, and as you hike down into the valley, they get even more unique and interesting. The trail is really easy to follow. Wall Street was open for us and was a fun, although very short and super steep, slot canyon. We added on Peekaboo Loop - fantastic!

Amazing Trail!

October 2018- Amazing trail! We parked at sunset point and saw a beautiful sunrise over the hoodoos with a sparse crowd. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. You really feel like you are on another planet. Highly recommend. Every corner you turn you’ll want to take a picture! Took us a little under 2 hours.

We parked our car at Sunrise Point parking lot. Started our hike from Queen Garden trail to Navajo trail and end at Sunset Point. The loop is a little under 4 miles and easy. Beautiful trails with amazing hoodoo. Highly recommend if you have time to hike for 2-3 hours.

Did about half of the trail as a run, in part because when i started at sunrise it was about -13c. Absolutely one of the coolest places ive hiked. Strongly recommend. I also ventured off on peekaboo loop for an extra couple of miles to complete the "hike the hoodoos challenge." Well worth the extra distance.

A beautiful hike. It is recommended to start from sunrise point and ends at sunset point. It's a 0.5 mile walk along the rim to go back to sunrise point. Gives you some nice views all through out. You walk 0.8 miles down hill the queens garden trail, about 0.6 mile on flat surface and take the novajo trail uphill. It's a steep but doable hike. Definitely recommend. Weather was perfect with the sun playing hide and seek. Jackets and ear muffs helped us stay warm.

Did this on Turkey day and saw nobody. Bring your good set of knees and good hiking shoes, this trail will destroy you. There was snow up there but just enough to get your feet wet so hopefully you have waterproof boots. I put my micro spikes on because there had been some freezing rain the trail was pretty icy and steep in parts so the traction was nice. Because of time constraints I didn't quite make it to Insiration Point or Logan Peak. Beautiful area.

An experience I’ll never forget. This backcountry is absolutely stunning. My friends and I signed up for the lottery twice. Got picked on the 2nd attempt. We arrived and made acquaintances with our fellow lottery winner and a volunteer hiker, Charlie. He ended up guiding us all the way to the Wave and giving us some lessons along the way. Best way to spend my birthday week! Try to grab a spot on the BLM page. If not, best of luck on the day you sign up at the BLM office!

This was a fun hike. We strolled at a leisurely pace and enjoyed the sites. I can see why this is the most popular hike in Bryce. Highly recommended for families

Great views, fairly easy hike, super crowded.

I won the Lottery! The lottery today was for Thanksgiving & Black Friday. 90 groups, representing 264 hikers, wanted the 20 permits. I feel like Charlie from Wllly Wonka and the Chocolate factory. I was the last one called for Friday. I got the last winning ticket. My first time in the walk up lottery. Did I mention I won the Lottery?

Completed the loop by taking Wall Street, the slot canyon to the right of the fork. Missed seeing Thor's Hammer that way, but the slot canyon was so unique (and usually closed by this time of year). It was a bit crowded in the canyon, but crowds started to thin out as we made our way onto the Queen's Garden portion of the trail. Spectacular scenery! I can see why this is called a "must do" for Bryce Canyon.

Gorgeous and well worth the ups and downs.

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.

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

Beautiful hike the whole way through. It's a bit strenuous, but is most definitely worth it.

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

Loved this trail!

no snow, ice, or even mud as of 10/25. gorgeous sunset. need a headlamp this time of year if going after work.

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

Excellence views!! The semi-strenuous parts are spread throughout the hike so it makes the hike pretty moderate overall. When you get down to the bottom of Navajo trail going towards peek-a-boo trail, start to the left of the sign as the end of the trail is the cathedral scenic view and that’s pretty much the end and totally worth waiting for. If you don’t have much time then go to the right and it’ll be a good uphill climb to see the best view and then straight back down. You can do that within an hour. Enjoyed every minute!

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

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!

Snow and slippery conditions after about 1.2 miles up. Microspikes recommended. Mucky mud too, but it was only really bad in a couple of spots. Winter is coming! Still a great hike, lovely view of the pines topped with snow much of the way up. Walking slower since I didn't have spikes, it took me 2 hours up and 1 hour down with a short break at the overlook. Also, it actually just under 5 miles round trip, not 4.1 miles from the description.

Holy crap this hike was awesome! The lottery system keeps crowds down to 20 people per day, which you really appreciate when you arrive.

We hiked this Saturday up to probably .25 miles from the top. It was a beautiful trail and great exercise! The last mile was all in snow that at times got up to a foot deep. I would say it’s still hikeable but it’s freezing at the top! I would take some good sweats, waterproof shoes, and gloves are a must. No one had hiked to the point we had got to though, so I think we were still on the trail, but it was beautiful! The point we had got to and back was closer to 11 miles verse 9 though... perhaps this next week will melt a little of the snow and make it still hikeable- I definitely want to try this one again!

Super fun
Great work out with family
