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 hike, start about 8:00 when it warms up a bit. 2 liters of water should do the trick. Take snacks to keep your energy where it should be.

Steep but not too difficult.

This is a low traffic trail. It provides beautiful views away from the other more popular trails. We were hiking around 3 pm on a Sunday and enjoyed having the trail mostly to ourselves. We saw many chipmunks and a baby snake. If you don't have the time to do the bigger loops this is a great second option.

Beautiful hike into the red rock formations of Bryce canyon. our kids handled it well even though it is pretty steep at the beginning and end of the loop. high traffic as advertised.

All in all a nice stop, but hardly worth a dedicated travel. The cave is not very impressive in late summer. The trail up to the windows is closed

Absolutely beautiful views.

I set out in the morning about 8am. As the sun was rising, you could see the beautiful red of the canyon. it was a beautiful hike down in the small canyon. i suggest doing the hike counterclockwise. The trail is fairly steep toward the end if you do it clockwise.
