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.

Do not go without a permit. BLM and the sheriff check several times a day. The fine is huge not to mention federal court and the bad karma from doing the wrong thing to Mother Nature.

Protecting the wave and surrounding area is critical. It is fragile beauty.

It took us 8 months but we finally won a permit. The effort was worth it. No one can really describe the mind boggling beauty of this hike.

It is as though you are on another planet. Enter the lottery every month until you are awarded a permit. It is truly the golden ticket.

Sandy in areas which is exhausting. Take the detailed map you get with your permit. We used it way more than I thought we would. You are on your own out there.

The ranger will stop you and examine your permit. Writing down the details. They keep careful track of who is out there.

Short hike but a really great one :-)

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.

Nice, easy and very enjoyable hike!!

Other worldly!

Amazing!

We did the walk from 4pm to 6pm. Amazing surroundings with distinctively variety of views of hoodoos.

Beautiful trail every step of the way. Definitely a moderate to hard hike due to elevation loss and gain but worth it. Going clockwise will give you a better view.

Definitely not easy on the way back up but beautiful!

Awesome views.

Incredible! The views above and below are magical! The ascent is challenging, but easily done with a short break or two.

This was an easy breezy hike with some amazing views of the hoodoos. The trail breaks off to other trails with clear signs all along the way. You hike down first and then back up.

Great hike. Make it easier by starting at the switchbacks

Fairly easy trail with good views of Zion National park and a small waterfall

Great hike! It seemed like every turn made was another amazing view. We got going later than we wanted, but still had the hike mostly to ourselves. Highly recommended!

Did this today and loved it! Reasonably trafficked, but not so much that you didn’t have some peace and quiet too. Amazing scenery and not too tricky! Proper boots would be recommended if you have them though :)

Good hike, some steeper slopes but we did it with small children, holding hands at the steepest parts. Waterfall was not that impressive but the views from the mountainside were nice!

Great hike, we returned by the navajo loop switchbacks at Wall Street, definately would have been easier to return by Queens trail.

Difficult to navigate. Have to cross through private property and met a few dogs that weren’t happy to see me.

Amazing trail! My old father in law, who is a fairly experienced hiker, said it was the best hike he’s ever done.

Long, but very manageable. And the views are a constant wonder.

Stunningly beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately hiked it alone, would be a fun experience with loved ones.

This trail is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Great views of the canyon and absolutely exhilarating with the large drop offs and hairpin switchbacks.

I did this hike on 7/20 and as of today, 7/21, I was informed by a ranger that the trail is CLOSED due to a rock fall.

Did this beautiful hike on a rainy day with our pup and ended up being the only ones! Gorgeous views and well worth it. The “falls” at the end was not much more than some running water that was waist level past a guardrail. Worth every minute of it!

This hike was easy and short. There's not a lot of difficulty in climbing, but it is on a cliffside so I would be careful bringing small children. There are a few benches on the way to sit and rest, take pictures, or have a snack.
At this time of the year, the actual waterfall was nice to look at, but pretty small- maybe because they are in a drought, even though it's been raining for 2 weeks. Some of the walkways on the cliffs were washed out, but we didn't have any problems getting over them.
Aside from this, the views on the way to the falls were spectacular. We had a pair of binoculars and enjoyed looking at objects nestled in the valley.
There are also restrooms at the trailhead.

Did this trail 2 years ago. A wonder! It’s the untouched backyard that mysteriously brings you back to the dinosaur era. 20 people per day are permitted, which means you won’t see any other human most of the time. Complete wilderness without any man made sign, so you have to notice the landscape then roam freely!
