Difficult but great view at the end!

Love this hike. Breathtaking views valley

This is our go to hike for visitors. It is easy enough for children and the views are exquisite.

nice short hike

Great easy trail to bring sea level guests who enjoy walking and wildlife.

We went early in the AM and found parking. The trail wasn't rugged and we saw some deer.

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!

Beautiful hike. Did this a couple days ago, with the queen's garden loop and then the peekaboo trail. Bryce is such a unique place, worth the effort! Take water. Wear good shoes.

awesome views

great views

Beautiful trails. One of my favorite place in Littleton.

Did the loop counter clockwise starting at inspiration point and walking the rim to Sunset. Took Navaho's switchback decent past marvelous natural sites like three trees climbing from floor to above the HooDoos. Joined the Queens loop at the bottom and took that to sunrise point where we caught the last shuttle back to the car. Weather was perfect and the trails only crowded at the start of Navaho. After reaching the bottom the crowds were gone. This trail combination is listed as the most popular and moderate. This is mid October and while the hotels were full it looked like our trails weren't overflowing.

Super packed, but the lake is incredible.

We hiked Saint Mary’s Glacier a few weeks ago. It’s a short, rocky climb, but the reward is breathtaking. The alpine lake, glacier and surrounding foliage is beautiful! We’re definitely making a return trip!

Left Hurricane about 0630 taking the I15 route up to Bryce. Weather was unfortunately poor. In the low 30s with rainy intermittent sleet and low clouds. Due to the weather and the time there was plenty of parking and surprisingly quite a few people out hiking. It turned out to be a great but wet hike in the canyon.
For what it’s worth I took 89 South, stopped at Red Canyon for an hour hike and then down thru Zion. Absolutely beautiful drive through the canyons. There is a section north of Glendale where the trees are a spectacular array of fall colors. just an overall fantastic drive

Hiked while it was snowing and the enchanted Forest sure did live up to it's name! The incline wasn't too bad at all. Cant wait to go back on a sunny day.

You can park at Bangs Canyon Trailhead. Follow the sign for "Mica Mines" trail. Continue on that trail for a few minutes and you will see a sign that points you to Rough Canyon trail, and you can start there.

Most beautiful hike I've even been on. The reward at the top is unbelieveable. I've never seen anything like it. The wildflowers were blooming like crazy when we went in the end of August. It was very difficult for us being from Nebraska due to the elevation but I would do it again!

Nice and fun! Close to Denver! It’s connected to a bunch of other trials too! Pretty easy and relaxed and you seem some bikers.

Perfect hike if you have a limited time in Bryce! Definitely do the connecting trails if you can! Bryce is such a special and unique National Park!

Pretty views but so rocky, and the large number of inconsiderate people riding bikes ruined it for me. I’ll try a hiking only trail next time.

This was one of my favorite trails. It’s close to town and has a little of everything from, wide open trails, red rock formations, foothill/mountain view’s, full city views, forest covered trail, trees with leaves changing covered trail, small overgrown trail, and a good workout...it has it all. Like others said, don’t be fooled by the strenuous sign it’s accurately a “moderate” trail. Went on a cooler Saturday so didn’t see too many other hikers but suspect it’s much busier on a better weather day. I lucked into a mostly quiet and peaceful hike though. $7 to get into the park or free with your CO parks pass. Plenty of parking and nice to have indoor plumbing bathrooms at the visitor center trailhead. I will definitely be doing this hike again sometime.

We veered left at the lake and climbed a rather steep, moderately dangerous unmarked trail to the summit. Beautiful. Continuing clockwise down to the glacier was fine in trail running shoes. Total hike 3.5 hours.

Very rocky and sometimes steep all uphill to reach the lake/glacier. A little tough, but doable, for a lowlander who hasn't acclimatized to the altitude yet. Beautiful vistas.

I arrived today at about 11:00am and the parking lot was nearly full. Today was bring your toddler day. This was my first time here. The first 1.5 miles is downhill if you're going counter-clockwise. Easy terrain. I ran Eagle's View in Conifer prior to coming here so the calves were already burning. I'm glad the elevation wasn't too intense.

Spectacular views and a must do if you have limited time (I did it easily in 90 mins) and want to experience being down in the canyon. Unless you love switchbacks and want to maximize the climb out effort start at the Sunset Point / Navajo end!

If you can only do one hike in Bryce, this is the one. Super rewarding for modest effort. Whatever your hiking time normally is, add about 20% for all the photo stops.

Great trail! It’s very long and good for a full day of hiking. Definitely would rate moderate

very nice trail just very crowded and parking costs 3.00 every two hours or so, starts all uphill then kinda eases towards the end

Beautiful hike. Surprisingly the glacier was still there in mid Sept.
