Breathtaking views! So worth hiking into the canyon to get close to the hoodoos! Challenging hike if you’re not used to the altitude. Take plenty of water, and take breaks in the shade! Loved it!

Beautiful from start to finish. Truly Fairy like feeling ascending & descending around the Hoodoos!! Highly recommend!!!

Absolutely stunning landscape!!! It doesn’t get more beautiful than this. We went over Labor Day weekend as the sun was setting after hiking the narrows at Zion in the am and this was a true treat!!! Go!!!! Trails were a little more crowded than I like but sunset is definitely a great time to go and get amazing photos.

I did this over Labor Day weekend with my sister — This is an amazing hike and a MUST do!! We received advice from our rappelling guide the day before to go as early as possible and take the first shuttle (you have to take a shuttle to the trailhead) to avoid crowds and FYI you will get best pictures in the am of water etc. BEST ADVICE EVER shout up around 6:30 am but beware the water is cold—-and you are in it the whole time so bring a jacket. They try to rent out water shoes but we wore our trailing running shoes and were just fine and opted for no poles and while slippery in places if you are atheistic and have strong legs you’ll be golden. We went about 5- 6 Miles in (until it got up to our shoulders then turned and did the 5-6 miles back out...don’t miss the bonus canyon!!! At the fork make a right and jump up over the little fall and go back a few miles — can’t remember what this one is called but we did it again on the the advice of our rappelling guide the day before and it was so cool and not very many people doing it. HAVE FUN and do this!! Can’t wait to go back and do the subway if I can get a permit or angel landing which was closed while we were there! Loooove southern Utah and Zion!!

Gorgeous hike at Arches! We got to the trailhead around 7am and it was pretty packed, but definitely plenty of parking. There’s a giant rock to climb up so the elevation gain can be a kicker but it’s worth it. Great photo opportunity at the end but there will be tons of people in your pictures!

Didn’t get the chance to hike the whole loop since it was too late in the day, but what we did get to was beautiful. It’s located close to the campground where we stayed which was nice. It was well marked and had a gorgeous sunset.

Tour bus after tour bus. Not a bad walk out and back. Dogs enjoyed being able to go with us (otherwise we wouldn't have stopped). Looks like they are constructing new trail, unfortunately doesn't look wide enough to support amount of foot traffic this trail experiences. Watch out in the parking lot since it looked like a war for people to get a spot. Worth the walk to see the bend in the river though.

Wow! I hit this puppy early in the morning with some snow sprinkles and I’m glad I left when I did. Boy does it get toasty on the ascent. Easy wide trail, but super steep in sections. Very beautiful views. It also gets CRAZY busy as the day unfolds, which makes you require a bit more patience. After we reached the top, we broke off on another trail for another 2 mi or so. Quite remote & beautiful!!

I have to add that so many people don’t eat the right shoes and they bring little to no water. I personally find that absolutely insane. Do some prep work and don’t put others at risk because you need help.

Great hike !!!

this is by far the best way to see delicate arch. well worth the moderate effort to see. great for sunset photos, but bring a flashlight or headlamp for the hike out, the trail nearest delicate arch is over rock and can be difficult to follow back in the dark

Awesome hike. Not hard not easy. Lots of places for catching breathe. Go before 8am if u want it to your self.

Beautiful hike that takes you under the hoodoos. Not too long or difficult, a must do in Bryce Canyon!

Hiking the Narrows Top-Down and is definitely more enjoyable than Bottom-Up (way less crowded for most of the hike). We took a shuttle up to the Ranch and started the hike around 815. The 12 campsites available are nicely spaced and above the water. We landed campsite 10 so we got the bulk of our hiking done the first day. I highly recommend bringing/renting canyoneering boots or at least using neoprene socks with waterproof shoes. Also, a trekking pole or walking stick will make hiking through the rocks and river easier. As you reach the last 6 miles of the hiking you’ll start to notice all the crowds for those starting bottom up.

I loved this Hike! It took 2 hours on Labor Day. There weren't too many other people on the trail. spectacular views descending from the highest point in the park. Nothing was flat--all up or down. One of the highlights of our trip. I would not want to take small kids on this one.

Hiked this on Labor Day. started at 8:00 am, 48°F, needed a jacket. Lots of steep down and up with spectacular views. Glad we didn't take the little kids with us. Hike time was 2 hours. Not a lot of other people on the trail. Definitely would recommend this hike.

Amazing hike with some absolutely stunning views of canyons/arches. So many contrasting colors. Bring lots of water as it’s hot and dry. Some technical spots that only those with proper shoes and fitness should attempt.

Great view. Big crowd, but still very good.

This hike is very popular, so be ready for lots of people to be around. It was stunning and well worth the climb. Bring hiking boots for the climb because a significant portion of the hike is on a semi-smooth rock face. If you are afraid of heights, there is a stretch at the end of the outward portion right before the arch that has a drop on one side and a wall on the other, but it is a fairly wide path enough for at least two people walking side by side and it is a pretty short distance. The view at the top is amazing.

I wouldn’t consider this a hike at all since it’s super short, but it was gorgeous and beautiful as hell. Definitely something to cross off the bucket list if you already haven’t. The view is amazing!

Another beautiful trail, when done before 9am it can be very quite. I started at 8:30am, encountered about 6 other people along the way down, one hour to get from Bryce point to loop point, then about 1 hour up where aI encountered about 12 people along the ascent. Can be a huff and puff in some areas, but there is always a landing to catch your second wind. Not difficult if you are in good shape, a Sierra Club person, runner, of some CV fitness.

This trail was more beautiful than the Peekaboo Loop trail that can be done as a circle eight with this loop. I did this trail in about 1 hour 20 minutes. If you are looking for short and sweet this is it. Not really a challenging trail either.

This is a stunning hike! The canyon has so much to offer... towering hoodoos, a lush forest and beautiful geology. I began my hike just after sunrise and shared the trail with probably 20 other adventurers. It was a good thing, because around 10:00 am the trail gets very full!

Great hike that is challenging but doable. As previously noted...start early. We started at 6:15 am and there was already a group at the first Arch. The number of people thinned out quickly after that as the trail picks up from a nice stroll to a bit of scrambling. We did it clockwise and finished in 4.5 hrs. We are both 67.

Absolutely gorgeous! This combo loop is a must-do in Bryce.

Best hike yet!!!! Unbelievable views and best scenery ever!! Catch the sunrise at Bryce Point first and then hike peekaboo and get back early! Must do hike!!!!!

Beautiful trail. Well maintained. Views are excellent. Bring plenty of water.

Beautiful hike. Come early or start late to avoid the crowds. Went down wall street and came back out via Queens Garden. Scenery is outstanding. The hike is well worth it. 5 stars without the people

Got to the Arch at 7am on Labor Day and around 40 people were already there. Nice hike to visit this iconic arch.

What a great hike for a couple of 60 year olds! Went to Double O then turned back, and was not disappointed! Don’t skip Partition and Navajo. Some scrambling, hiking atop a fin (not for those with a fear of heights!), and opportunities to go down on all fives. Lol. Great experience for confidence building. Yes, I can do this!

we did this trail together with the navajo. they were both beautiful. if you start around 8 am you can finish both in around 3 hrs.

Amazing views of hoodoos. A bit of a challenge due to the hills but worth it.
