This hike was awesome! I did it back in April, 2018, before the storm. I took the advice others have given and got on one of the first buses out and had little traffic on the way up but lots on the way down.

Great trail - not too busy, but still very scenic. I'd pick Fairyland Loop over Peekaboo if you have limited time; otherwise try and do Navajo Loop / Peekaboo / Queens Garden trails.

Really enjoyed this trail - not quite as spectacular as Navajo Loop or Queens Garden - but the lack of crowds more than make up for it. Much of the walk is exposed so start early if you can - but there's no really steep sections.

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.

Fantastic scenery. Try and do the walk at sunrise or sunset. Avoid peak season if you can. If you have the time, combining this walk with Peekaboo Trail means you'll avoid a lot of the crowds.

We enjoyed fabulous views with sightings of several families of big Horn Sheep! lots of young ones that made me a little nervous for their safety on the step cliffs, but I'm sure they know what they're doing!
At the end of the trail you are rewarded with a beautiful and fantastical photo opportunity!

It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

If you go to Arches and you aren’t just a tourist then GO DO THIS TRAIL!!!! We got to the visitors center right at 7:30am when it opened so we were the first people out on the trail and it was amazing. Maybe one of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked. We got lost for almost an hour but just laughed to whole time because the scenery was too gorgeous to be upset. Please do yourself a favor and hike this trail!!!

spectacular!

Epic views. I went end of Aug, in the afternoon, and was the only one on the trail. Easy and well-marked.

A word of caution to Canyonlands “newbs” such as myself- the trailhead is not marked from the road as Gooseberry or White Rim Trail. Look for the sign saying “Picnic/Hiking Trail” after Buck Canyon and before the Orange Cliffs Overlook (I overshot the turnout).

Trail was incredible; amazing views and easy to navigate. Rate moderate to hard (mainly because I am grossly out of shape). Finished in 3.5 hours. Trail was pretty populated, but there was plenty of solitude as well.

Short easy hike. Nice scenery, iconic sight Zion NP.

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

A great Hike. Like others say, start early.....we started at 8am but 7am would have been even better as if you plan to do Primative loop as we did then the last 45 minutes back to the Landscape Arch (assuming a clockwise loop) could be a little punishing if not adequately prepared on a hot day.
The Arches are all fantastic in their own way and quite unique. We enjoyed a treat of mother and young deer feeding at Landscape Arch which was great. If you choose to take the Primative loop and assuming it is dry then there is nothing too difficult although if in doubt spot the cairns (rock piles) which indicate the way. Also around Double O arch of you wish to find the Primative loop (again clockwise) then pass through the arch and pass around the fin to find the trail. That was the most difficult part of the trail to stay on. We took just over 4 hours with 2 children (15and12. Very rewarding hike. Primative Loop only has one arch (Private Arch) which is beautiful but for the less confident then just turn back after Double O arch would be my suggestion.

Beautiful 360 views the whole hike. Only saw 2 other people the entire time. Highly recommended.

Great views but bring plenty of water if you plan on hiking into the afternoon. Start early if you want to avoid the heat.

great hike, doesn't feel very long, lots of steps!

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

easy hike, go in morning to avoid the heat and bring 2 liters water

the two miles to the end are longer than it'd seem. took about 2 hours, but beautiful trail. the beginning has the best views

The best way to see the Hoodoos of Bryce Canyon! We adventured from Sunset Point through Wall Street to Peekaboo then on to Queens Garden to Sunrise Point finishing up with a short jaunt on the rim trail back to Sunset. There are so many photo opportunities! Start early for parking and bring plenty of water. A bit strenuous if you're not a frequent elevation hiker.

Peek-a-boo loop was incredible! Do this trail for sure. It was a nice hike to combine with Queen's Garden. Nice mix of inclines and declines so you aren't getting killed doing one or the other too long. Took me about 3.5 hours to complete. Peek-a-boo loop is not too busy either.

Short hike but a really great one :-)

We did this hike with Ranger Vicky (she is really brilliant) and the hike was amazing.

Balade facile et amusante pour les enfants (passages un peu techniques) pour bien finir la journée en sortant de Zion national Park par l'est. Arrêtez vous juste après le tunnel. Si le parking est plein, on trouve des places un peu plus haut le long de la route. Très beau point de vue sur la vallée une gros arrivé au bout du trail. Comptez une heure A/R.

Balade facile faite avec deux enfants (6 et 7 ans) par beau temps (environ 25-30°c). Trois arches à voir. Le sentier est bien balisé et facile à suivre. Comptez un peu moins de deux heures sans forcer.

Jolie balade dans difficulté. Comptez une heure A/R. Quelques passages un peu glissants sur quelques slickrocks (il pleuvait un peu) mais rien de méchant. Peu de monde sur le parcours. Très beaux paysages.

Belle balade de trois heures environ faite avec nos enfants (6 et 7 ans) part une belle journée d'août. Pas de difficulté particulière, sinon la dernière remontée un peu longue. De très beaux points de vue sur le parc inaccessibles depuis le haut.

Lovely hike that's not too strenuous and not too easy. As usual the heat is a major factor.

We intended to do the loop clockwise but took a turn right and did it anticlockwise. Probably best to follow the trail on phone.

We didn't see or meet anyone until the very end. Great views.
