Bryce Canyon National Park in southwestern Utah is one of the strangest, weirdest, most beautiful National Parks in the Southwest. Bryce Canyon is a giant natural amphitheater along the Paunsaugunt Plateau created from millions of years of erosion. The unique area has hundreds of tall hoodoos (tall, thin spires of rocks). The region was originally settled by Native Americans and later by Mormon pioneers.

Amazing views

Gorgeous! The Wall Street portion was still open when we visited last week and it was one of our favorite parts of the hike.

Gorgeous and well worth the ups and downs.

It was a lovely drive with lots of viewpoints. I did every other viewpoint driving toward Rainbow Point and then the rest driving back so I wouldn’t be stopping at every single one and so I had something to do on the way back.

I was tired so I just did the lower and mid viewpoints. It’s amazing!

It’s super short and ends at an amazing viewpoint.

This was a nice trail. It was colder so there weren’t many people at all. It goes over a wash and up to a fork where you can see a waterfall (no waterfall right now) and the mossy cave. The cave is certainly mossy and there’s an info sign that says it’s covered in icicles in the winter. The trailhead is fairly easy to find. Go east on 12 and around one of the bends is a parking area with a sign and a little shack.

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.

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.

The waterfall had essentially no water in it (in late October) and the cave wasn't anything special. Easy, but extremely boring hike.

One of the wonders of nature
Enjoyed three hours of hiking up and down and admiring beautiful scenery
I shall go back any day

First time at Bryce. I hiked down and backup Wall Street. The plan was to hike all of Peekaboo take some landscape photography but I was awed by the beauty and was side tracked and started composing and shooting. The photo I uploaded was taken on another day and a typical shot at a different part of Bryce.

The best I have hiked. Loved it

Beautiful trail some puffing coming back up but not bad

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

Beautiful and one of the easier hikes in Utah in my opinion. Video one my hike with the wife here.

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

Excellence views!! The semi-strenuous parts are spread throughout the hike so it makes the hike pretty moderate overall. When you get down to the bottom of Navajo trail going towards peek-a-boo trail, start to the left of the sign as the end of the trail is the cathedral scenic view and that’s pretty much the end and totally worth waiting for. If you don’t have much time then go to the right and it’ll be a good uphill climb to see the best view and then straight back down. You can do that within an hour. Enjoyed every minute!

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

Easy flat and paved. Beautiful views.

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

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
