Completed the loop by taking Wall Street, the slot canyon to the right of the fork. Missed seeing Thor's Hammer that way, but the slot canyon was so unique (and usually closed by this time of year). It was a bit crowded in the canyon, but crowds started to thin out as we made our way onto the Queen's Garden portion of the trail. Spectacular scenery! I can see why this is called a "must do" for Bryce Canyon.

Short hike to amazing views, we spent a couple hours here enjoying the scenery. Horseshoe Bend is a must see, but pretty busy spot.

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

There are much nicer arches out there!

I think this is my favorite. Of course, doing the whole circuit is worth it.

Nice to see! We made this a pit stop on our drive from Flagstaff to Zion. We had a 10:30 am antelope canyon tour so stopped by here before. It was cool to see but not the best lighting yet at 8:30 in the morning. It’s a quick pit stop. Spent about 35 min here. Came back after our tour finished at noon because we weren’t in a hurry to get to Zion. Lighting was much better. Would recommend to see if you’re in the area. Not something I would go out of my way for though.

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.

Nice hike, especially if you have kids and want something that feels like a hike without being too difficult. Landscape arch is HUGE.

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

Crowded but worth it.

Go for sunrise! View is amazing, tourists are not.

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

Fun stop at sunrise. Trail is sandy and descends to the viewpoint and is great to fly down. Canyon rim will be filled with photographers, but plenty of room to wander. Fairly flat areas to just run free and explore on the red rock await at the end of trail.

Short hike, but views are fantastic. Plus, the car ride up to and through the tunnel is worth doing by itself. If you’re going through the park, you’ll need a pass.

Showed up for sunrise. No disappointment here. If in the area definitely worth the stop!

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

Gorgeous view! Don’t let the beginning climb scare you off, it’s totally doable.

There are very few times in my life that I have seen something that has given me goosebumps the first time I laid eyes on it ... Horseshoe Bend was one of them.

Maybe it was because of how dark it was (we arrived for sunrise) or because of the vastness of the canyon and how perfectly shaped the horseshoe was, but its pure and utter natural beauty almost brought tears to my eyes.

We got up around 5 am on 10/16 after camping about a mile or two down the road from the Wahweap Overlook. After packing up our tent and heading to the trailhead, we arrived at the parking lot around 5:45 am. This was just in time to snag a perfect spot on the rocks overlooking the bend, only having to share it with one other photographer. In total, we probably shared the view with 15 other people, but I'll take that every day over the swarm of tourists that congregated at the parking lot at noon the day prior.

The "hike" itself is just a short walk up and down a small hill. It was 100 percent worthwhile to get up early to catch the majesty of this scenic viewpoint at its most perfect hour. I don't doubt that sunset here is also impeccable, but I'd rather do without the crowds.

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

The Park map calls this a moderate trail. There are rails throughout to help so to frequent hikers, this would be considered easy. There is a small wood bridge so if you have a fear of heights, probably not the best trail for you. The view is definitely beautiful all throughout though!

If you are in the area, you have to do this! But I wouldn't make a huge detour for it. It's mostly just a place to take a picture (which you've seen thousands of times) with many...many tourists

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

Nice trail. I would rate the hike Easy/Moderate. Very narrow at one point. Lots of great views.

Great way to see the canyon as a whole. Start at sunset point for a slight drop in elevation along the route
