If you go that far, I'd suggest making the loop

on Broken Arch Trail

Great short hike for anyone. The arch is amazing, check it out. We took our 2 year old after visiting nearby Sand Dune arch (easy walk from this one).

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.

This was definitely hard. And it’s more like 8.5 miles. I started at Sunrise Point where I watched the sun rise before heading counterclockwise down the Tower Bridge trail. There are definitely more hoodoos on the amphitheater side than on the Fairyland Canyon side. The trail takes you down to Tower Bridge (a formation that really looks like Tower Bridge in London) and up Boat Mesa, then back down and around through Fairyland Canyon. It ends with a somewhat easy 2.7 mile hike on the Rim Trail.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

Loved this trek! Passageways that open up into an amazing canyon (working clockwise) and the view of the windows is impressive. Not much traffic.

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

Absolutely amazing hike. Incredible views that aren’t anything like those in the nearby national parks. Recommend hiking counter clockwise to save the best views for the middle/end of the hike. The strenuous sections are broken up and spaced between long flat sections, which I greatly appreciated

This is an absolutely gorgeous hike with almost constant breathtaking views. This will easily be one of the prettiest hikes that you have ever been on, although it is mildly strenuous.

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

One of the most stunning arches in the park! Worth the hike out for sure. We (and a bunch of other people) did lose the trail leading up to the arch, even with the AllTrails app, so pay attention to the hoodoos! Also, please, please do not climb up and jump all over the arches - they will collapse :(

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

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

Good trail with not much traffic if you go early morning. Couple of spots that may be difficult for those less mobile.

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

We went at the end of the day so we could catch the sunset through the arch. It was beautiful and most people had left by that time so we felt like we had it to ourselves. Just take a headlamp or flashlight so you can make it back safely. The trail is well marked. Loved this hike!

Be sure to go down through queens garden then up Wall Street. In the summer queens garden is fully exposed to the sun and no fun to go up while going up wall street is primarily shaded

I see this trail as the signature hike in Bryce Canyon. We started the hike at the general store and hiked counter-clockwise. This hike lets you get up close and personal with the hoodoos.It's amazing to stand right in front of a hoodoo and look up. On the strenuous scale I would rate the hike a 7 out of 10. The trail had no steep climbs but a lot of ups and downs. The only drawback we had was the mud near the general store and Fairyland Point. Overall a great hike.

Did this hike the day after a snow storm. Beautiful views, a lot of snow in the ground. Some areas were tough because of ice and slippery mud from the melting snow, trekking poles we're extremely helpful. We started and finished at Bryce point, the last mile back up is a good climb and made tougher because of the snow. it's a good hike because there were up and down areas throughout, not just straight down and the straight back up.

Beautiful, well marked, lots of children and people of all ages. The Corona is amazing!

easy hike, amazing rock formations but very crowded

This was a mostly level hike up a stream bed. There was only a small stream in October, but without waterproof hiking shoes, feet would still have been wet! Great, rewarding and relaxing hike; lots of slot canyons, two waterfalls, and wonderful fall foliage.

Great arches! Very crowded and lots of kids on Saturday, so a little hard to keep a steady pace. Worth the trip though! Takes only an hour, including stops.

Definitely go counterclickwise as Fairyland is lower than Sunrise. And leave a vehicle at Fairyland as the shuttle doesn't stop there. The trail between Tower Bridge and Fairyland is awesome. We walked it in the afternoon and saw hoodos that looked translucent because of reflections off the rocks. We made the mistake of thinking the shuttle stopped at Fairyland, but some very nice people have us a lift back, so we didn't need to walk yet another 2 mi. While Alltrails lists this as hard, it really is just longer than most of the moderately rated trails. Not as crowded as Queens Garden and Navajo, so peaceful.

Was able to hike it yesterday morning before the snow melted. Started at Bryce point, and the views were next to none!

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.

Awfully slimy trail as snow came early. The views cannot be beat. Hiking poles were very helpful. It definitely felt challenging at times but a great hike.

Popular trail with amazing views. Get an early start to beat the crowds!
