Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos - done in combination with Queens Garden Trail and Navajo Loop Trail. The trail is really easy to follow. We ended up going counter-clockwise, which seemed to have slightly less of the intense switchbacks uphill. But there is still a lot of up and down - so it’s tough to tell. Either way, it’s a gorgeous hike and really fun.

Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos. The views at the start are phenomenal, and as you hike down into the valley, they get even more unique and interesting. The trail is really easy to follow. Wall Street was open for us and was a fun, although very short and super steep, slot canyon. We added on Peekaboo Loop - fantastic!

It was cool to see, but the rim has the same views the entire time.

Amazing Trail!

incredible hike. Love being Down Under the hoodoos. Steep beginning and end but I hiked it with my three year old and nine year old and they did fine.

October 2018- Amazing trail! We parked at sunset point and saw a beautiful sunrise over the hoodoos with a sparse crowd. Unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. You really feel like you are on another planet. Highly recommend. Every corner you turn you’ll want to take a picture! Took us a little under 2 hours.

Great way to see the Bryce canyon Hoodoos. Spectacular views. Crowded trail. It was in the high 30s - low 40s with clear blue sky. We went counter clockwise so I think the uphill this way wasn't as steep. In any case plan on getting out of breath on the way up. Hiking is a must while in Bryce canyon and this is a great option if you don't have too much time.

We parked our car at Sunrise Point parking lot. Started our hike from Queen Garden trail to Navajo trail and end at Sunset Point. The loop is a little under 4 miles and easy. Beautiful trails with amazing hoodoo. Highly recommend if you have time to hike for 2-3 hours.

Did about half of the trail as a run, in part because when i started at sunrise it was about -13c. Absolutely one of the coolest places ive hiked. Strongly recommend. I also ventured off on peekaboo loop for an extra couple of miles to complete the "hike the hoodoos challenge." Well worth the extra distance.

A beautiful hike. It is recommended to start from sunrise point and ends at sunset point. It's a 0.5 mile walk along the rim to go back to sunrise point. Gives you some nice views all through out. You walk 0.8 miles down hill the queens garden trail, about 0.6 mile on flat surface and take the novajo trail uphill. It's a steep but doable hike. Definitely recommend. Weather was perfect with the sun playing hide and seek. Jackets and ear muffs helped us stay warm.

Did this on November 22, 2018. Amazing hike with great views of Bryce Canyon. Additional it snowed while hiking up which made it a little tricky but loved it as well.

Ended up doing clockwise but was still amazing. I wasn’t aware that part of the trail is actually in designated park wilderness. Not a big deal. Trail is super easy to follow. Was not crowded in the least.

This was a fun hike. We strolled at a leisurely pace and enjoyed the sites. I can see why this is the most popular hike in Bryce. Highly recommended for families

Snowshoed this as part of a loop. Fun trail in the snow.

Great views, fairly easy hike, super crowded.

Don’t be fooled by the relatively smooth paths. Switchbacks, multiple elevation gains and losses make this a challenging hike. Variation of geology and scenery make this one of the best (maybe the best) hike in the park. Head clockwise at trailhead for best views on descent.

Completed the loop by taking Wall Street, the slot canyon to the right of the fork. Missed seeing Thor's Hammer that way, but the slot canyon was so unique (and usually closed by this time of year). It was a bit crowded in the canyon, but crowds started to thin out as we made our way onto the Queen's Garden portion of the trail. Spectacular scenery! I can see why this is called a "must do" for Bryce Canyon.

We started at Wall Street and made our way to queens garden, then back up to the rim. Wall Street was absolutely amazing and better in person than seeing photos! I’m so glad we decided to visit Bryce. It was a bit steep finishing the hike up to the rim but it probably would have been harder hiking the other way around - finishing with Wall Street. We hiked Nov 14, 2018 and it was chilly but we warmed up easily. And I was surprised how busy it was considering how empty North Rim was at the Grand Canyon the day prior.

Awesome hike through the hoodoos! We started with Queens Garden Loop and ended going up Wall Street (kindof by accident— missed Najvajo somehow). It was a tough climb out of there but so much fun! Incredible scenery!!

Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

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.

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.
