Easy, short walk over a small hill. Sunrise will come up behind you as you’re looking at the bend so before with the canyon in full shadows or a little later in morning once the sun is fully lighting the canyon are probably the two best picture options unless you’re going for sunset

I can see why this hike is a lot of peoples favorite, including mine. Went up falling waters and came down old bridle, Whole loop took me and my Dog 7 hours with long breaks at the peaks. up falling waters trail was moderate in difficulty, my dog a Brittany Spaniel had no problems as he is an experienced hiker. Falling waters really inclines near little haystack. Perfect sunny weather, amazing views at the top really rewards you.

A good combination of trails - I'd recommend starting early as both Navajo Loop Trail and Queens Garden Trail get pretty busy. I did Navajo, then Peekaboo Loop and by the time I got to Queens Garden trail (aroud 9am) it was already starting to get busy.

It was my favorite hike I have ever done. The view at the top is beautiful and the falls on the way up are amazing as well. The trail is busier than others I have done in the past but definitely not as trafficked as I was expecting it to be. We did the hike in about 5.5 hours roundtrip but we were definitely moving quickly. I definitely will be doing this hike again!

Took me 2 hr and 15 minutes in total to finish the loop.

Love it! Will come back and climb the rock!

I loved this trail. It was hard though & I maybe found it more difficult as my last hike was in March so I had muscle soreness for a few days after & bad knees due to a fall. Nothing serious, just tired legs during the last 2 Miles. Amazing views throughout, the waterfalls are stunning. A very busy trail & need to get there early for prime parking. We ended up parking at the shuttle car park off exit 34c, which was fine. Took us 6 hrs 20, I’m in pretty decent shape & not been hiking for a good few months. We went up the falls trail & back on the old bridal path.

Awesome trail with variety of scenery.

Very busy, scenery is nice. Expect waiting for shuttle back. Iconic sight Zion NP.

Hiked it in the rain today, couldn’t see more than ten feet in front of you up top. I honestly loved it, it wasn’t too hot or too cold, I didn’t find it challenging either. I frequently hike Monadnock and I think that’s a more challenging hike. We did get a bit lost and did 12 miles instead of the 8.5, but it only took us 6.5 hours

7.5 hours, lots of nice hikers. Beautiful views. AMC hut on Bridal Trail a bonus.

Small walk to sign off bucket list. Looks like ants walking up and down. Horrible parking, chaos.

Gorgeous hike that offers a huge variety of scenery. We hiked this in reverse (a less popular choice) and it was amazing! Starting at the Matt Davis trailhead near the fire station, you hike mostly uphill to the Pantoll visitor center. The visitor center roughly marks the halfway point, and offers restrooms and a drinking fountain to refill your water bottle. Then you proceed to the steep ravine and dipsea trails, with great views of the ocean and a pleasant ocean breeze on the way back. Absolutely breathtaking!

Short hike but a really great one :-)

hands down my favorite hike I have made to date! absolutely gorgeous. I brought my dog and very quickly regretted it as we ended up having to life him and hoist him up a few rocky parts and he was not at all happy- but lesson learned that he is not as much an adventurer as I believed and from now on I'm doing a hike without him before I ever bring him on one!

other than my personal dog issues- this was certainly challenging and even more rewarding than expected. bring lots and lots of water tho! we did not make it to the hut because of my dog, so we were slipping into dehydration the whole way back down as we anticipated refilling at the hut.

hands down one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on, the prettiest part being Steep Ravine. when your walking through Redwoods with the babbling creek next to you it looks like the Forest of Endor. I'd suggest going In March-May, everything is greener then, but I went a couple weeks ago and it was still great. at a moderate pace finished in about 3 hours.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

Amazing hike with so much interest. I would suggest that if people leave out the side track to Bryce Point then this is a fairly comfortable hike and certainly not hard. Would be a shame if this trail was missed because of concern over hard grading. The East Rim to Observation Point in Zion was much tougher and that was graded Moderate. Overall Bryce is a unique place and this loop with the Navajo and Queens Garden will deliver most of the top sites in Bryce in my opinion.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

Awesome hike with fun and somewhat challenging terrain, amazing views and beautiful water features. Doable as a day hike but have to be a moderately experienced hiker. Greenleaf Hut seems like a great option for those who want to extend the hike to a two day trip (it’s a lot like the refuges in the alps, complete with food and bunks and friendly folks to chat with). We did it as a day hike in ~7hrs in reverse of this guide (up Old Bridal Trail over the pass and down Falling Waters). Going down Falling Waters was great because it allowed us to take plenty of breaks on the final stretch down and take in all the water views. Bring a good camera to capture the waterfalls and the views.

Highly recommend this loop, so far my absolute favorite day hike in the Whites. Go for it!!

Wow! The views here were perfect. If you bring a hat, watch for the wind at the summit.

This is a fairly easy walk down to the bend. The view is awesome. You can walk right up to the edge and look down. Make sure you keep an eye on those little ones. Its a bit scary because there is nothing holding you back. Worth the hike. Bring water with you.

Love this trail especially the Steep Ravine portion. Beautiful ravine with the added shade of our coastal Redwoods! Park free at Stinson and end your hike relaxing at the beach. Complete day!

One of the prettiest hikes I’ve ever done. A quintessential northeast hike, should be on everyone’s list. Well worth it.

Other worldly!

As an amateur hiker, I found this moderately challenging but satisfying. Lots of incline but with a wonderful view. It was a beautiful scenic route and heavily shaded. Terrain was a bit loose in some areas so the correct shoes for this hike is essential. Parking was a bit confusing and I think we began at the wrong end as we started decline end first. I would not bring my children here however there was a family with small children. Overall, one of my favorites so far, definitely one to do again (in the the spring, when there’s more water)

From the Matt Davis which quickly opens up to beautiful, rolling hills overlooking the Pacific into switchbacking down through evergreen forests to the open coastal trail of the Dipsea to a gorgeous, shaded Redwood forest along Webb Creek on the Steep Ravine, this hike has it all.

A couple short-but-tight street walks/crossings (from Pantoll across to Matt Davis and in town to Dipsea trailhead) so beware of traffic.

Gorgeous and the water is a welcome cool off. Be prepared for crowds though.

We parked at the Pantoll station and hiked Steep Ravine to Dipsea. Lunch at Stinson. Back up Matt Davis. Did not care for Matt Davis. A lot of poison oak and not nearly as pretty as Steep Ravine/Dipsea. Quite the climb on a warm late afternoon as well. Good workout dripping sweat the first couple miles on Matt Davis though so...there's that. We hiked Friday, July 20th. Trails weren't terribly crowded. We passed about five or six groups and a couple of solo hikers on the way down. One runner. A few solo hikers coming down Matt Davis while we climbed up.
