Lovely little hike and not as strenuous as I thought it was going to be. The trail is easy to follow and the horse poop is no big deal, easy to avoid. Recommend!

Beautiful hike and views, but I only give it 4 stars. A LOT of up and down and you're sharing much of the trail with horses and poop. On the upside, one gets a lot more close and personal with hoodoos. I prefer Fairyland loop. Views there are endlessly expansive and trail is much quieter. If you have time, do both. Each are unique. If you only have time for one, I'd choose Fairyland.

Very nice views but a lot of walking through woods and burnt woods.

Our favorite trail in Bryce! Hiked clockwise as suggested by other reviewers which I would also recommend. Much less crowded compared to other trails with stunning views. Total time was around 3.5 hours after taking many photos!

We walked this trail in the early afternoon after wandering the Peekaboo Loop in the morning. He was completely different, which we liked very much. We find this trail, contrary to the mediocre, other reviews, highly recommended.

A very nice trail with a breathtaking view. Since he is also committed by horses, it has here and there "horse pile", which did not bother us at all. Highly recommended from our point of view. We left at about 9 o'clock and there were only a few other hikers.

Beautiful trail

Incredible hike! The views are described by the name, fairyland!

One of the most remarkable places I’ve ever hiked. We started right after watching the sun rise. For awhile parts of the trail were all ours. By the time we climbed out of the canyon, it was a regular city sidewalk… but with unsurpassed scenery.

Pretty views on the way down and back. View of the bridge in the distance at the end of trail.

Excellent. The AllTrails app on my phone measured it at 4.4 miles. I did it counter-clockwise. The last .75 miles were easy with beautiful scenery, following a one-mile climb.

Yet another stunning trail. As good as, but different to Peek-a-Boo Trail. Generally in good condition with amazing scenery all round. Took the clockwise option from Fairyland Car Park just outside the parks main gate, which is very small. Short spur to Tower Bridge is worth the 200yds, but beware the 1.7 mile climb from here to the Rim Trail before heading back. It's very do-able but it would challenge some. Early start, we set off just before 7:30am, is a must to enjoy it in relative solitude, we didn't see more than 20 people the whole trail. Took just over 4 1/2 hrs

many ups and downs. bring water. 25 pound pack will be a lot for non backpackers.

Incredible hike. An absolute must-do if you go to Bryce. You can see most of Bryce from these trails, although we also did Wall Street and I would really recommend that. Climbing out of the canyon is the hardest part, but if you’re in decent shape it shouldn’t be a problem.

Hard hike with great views

Spectacular views. Went clockwise starting at 8am. 3.5hrs back to the start. wonderful.

4.5 stars. In my opinion, the Peek-A-Boo loop is the 5 star hike in Bryce Canyon. This is also really pretty but, for me, it’s just not as special. The trail is clean. The footing is nice. The scenery is beautiful.

Nice short hike next to a fast moving stream. The cave is interesting. The waterfall was the highlight. Pretty views of some cool hoodoos and a nice bridge.

Omg this trail is AMAZING! About 3 miles. Lots of ups and down but not awful. The views were SPECTACULAR!!! My favorite trail at Bryce Canyon. We started 8:30am and we practically had the trail to ourselves! Can’t recommend enough!! So great!

Good link into Peek-a-Boo Trail, albeit on switchbacks. Views are amazing

What an awsome trail!! Got an early start so had the trail pretty much to ourselves. Joined from Bryce Point and took the clockwise route which was amazing with a new vista at each turn. The trail was in really good condition, so wasn't too tough under foot, and the ups & downs were manageable. Highly recommend this trail.

I thought this was a great, less popular trail despite the mediocre reviews. I hiked this on a busy Saturday evening in the park and somehow I was the only soul on the trail - took me 2 hours to complete. The hat shop hoodoos were quite iconic in my opinion and worth a visit if you can fit it in your schedule. The only thing I will say though is the hike back up is quite strenuous on the legs and if you're not used to the elevation yet, you might be huffing and puffing alot. It's a workout for sure.

Awesome views definitely recommend. However I only give it 4 stars it is way to crowded and to many rude hikers. it seems that there are many tourists/hikers that have no clue of trail etiquette.

Little trail with Awesome views

Started this heavily trafficked but beautiful route beginning at sunset point and ending at sunrise point. This is definitely the tourist trap of the park but it does have the best views of hoodoos. The trek is easy and was a great introduction to the park.

We did the loop from our campsite North Campground beginning with the Tower bridge trail and exiting through the Fairyland trailhead back down the rim trail to our campsite. Round trip 10.1 miles and 3.5 hours. Can be a real mouth breather coming back up from the canyon floor to the rim but was scenic, less crowded, and well worth the trek.

Beautiful views of the Hoodoos. Lots of ups and downs which can be relatively strenuous, pack snacks and water. Watch out for the horse poops, though you'll smell it before you see it. Completed in May 2019
