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.

great trail made the mistake of doing peek a boo on the top of this in one day.

Started just after sunrise and had the trail to ourselves most of the time. Beautiful. Go clockwise

Easy, paved and fantastic views.

Can’t say enough about Bryce Canyon. It’s simply one of the more beautiful natural spectacles in the United States. This trail, specifically, is one of the most popular, giving you the best views on a simple, short hike.

Bryce is so breathtakingly beautiful and this trail is Bryce at its best. That said it’s strenuous and one does encounter horses and their excrement. Give yourself time and you’ll be glad you did it.

Beautiful and majestic! Hard to describe the views and rocks, definitely lived up to its name "fairyland" as it had a certain magical quality to it.

Recommend you do the loop in anti clockwise direction going down the Navajo trail.

Came here on Friday the 13th. Amazing views before descending down the switchbacks. Went from sunset point to Navajo loop and connected to queens garden. Wall Street side was closed as of the 13th.

It's a beautiful drive, after hiking Angels Landings in Zion and other trails , I needed a break.Thought I need my hiking legs again but just a short walk to the lookout points through the drive, It was amazing.

Good short easy hike.

Great hike many many great views. Definitely worth the drive. Temperature throughout the day was perfect.

amazing hike with so many great views of the hoodoos. Did this hike with our 6 year old and 13 year old and they managed very well. Definetly a must return hike for us.

This was a fun trail but busy since it was so close to the lodge. I walked this trail with my family and my 8.5 year old daughter had no trouble. It was really cool to be hiking in the canyon and seeing the hoodoos up close. Definitely agree on doing this trail counter-clockwise since the climb out wasn’t too difficult.

Nice view to have a close look at the hoodoos. The temperature is perfect during Spring Break. Cannot imagine how hot it can be during summer time.

15 days ago

Trail is OUT: rockslide/tree slide has taken out much of the switchback section. (Took it to shortcut out of Under the Rim, ended up scrambling:/.). Was able to get up today, but this could change.

Spectacular hike with some truly stunning views. I brought my kids (12, 10, and 8) down the Queen's Garden Trail, and back up the Two Towers. Snow was present at the higher end of the park, but everything was dry where we were. Trail was very crowded, which was the only drawback. They've also ran the trail through several man-made tunnels, which my kids loved. I'm excited to come back and try Peek a Boo loop and Wall Street (Wall was still closed for the winter as of early April, but I heard something about a rock slide there as well).

My kids could do this hike, although the uphill was a little rough on them. I think most adults or relatively energetic youth could do it. Two towers is steep but no dropoffs, while the Queen's Garden side is less steep but has sheer drops on some parts of the trail.

Great hike for kids :-) the waterfall was rushing, but there was no icicles in the cave.

Steep in parts but not difficult. Beautiful rock formations.

This might be my new favorite hike. Views and hike are just spectacular.

It was the best 3 Miles I have ever walked

I hiked this trail last year when both of the parts was still open. Really beautiful. I just went there 2 weeks ago and they announce one of the ends was blocked off due to rock falling, so they reccomend to do the navojo loop and queens garden.

Nice hike, some incline, but the hoodoos were nice to look at. The ranger recommend us to go down navojo and come up sunrise for an easier hike.

Gorgeous, great workout!

So beautiful

great hike that puts you directly in the hoodoos.

Spectacular views!

Majestic views throughout the trail. Truly unique canyon.

Extremely fun trail which offers great views of the canyon. Being down within the hoodoos is a spectacular feeling. I would recommend the counter-clockwise direction as it has a more gradual ascent that clockwise. I highly recommend this trail.

Best views in the park. Cool to hike down and see the hoodoos up close. We started at sunrise point, so had a slightly boring walk along the rim at the end back to the car, but still very worth it.
