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.

It's amazing! It a must do! Start it clock wise to get the best of it.

My favorite hike at Bryce

Did this hike in early/mid March. Started on the Navajo loop then linked up with peekaboo, heading back out Navajo.

There was a ton of mud and some ice on Navajo and Peekaboo was almost entirely snowpack, but we hiked in light layers and had lots of sun and were plenty warm. Recommend hiking poles for the snow, and if it's fresh ice you'll want crampons for the Navajo section. We hiked in mid length boots with waterproofing and were warm and dry. Path was hiked enough that we were on top of, rather than in, the snow.

The temps were cool so 2.5L of water was more than enough. I believe we finished the loop in about 3 hours. If you're fit this is a moderate hike; significant snow or ice could make it harder. With cool temps and no snow I'd call it easy for anyone that's in decent shape.

Don't miss this gem. We stoped on a whim as we were on the way to Bryce Canyon from Grand Escalante. It's a short hike with great payout. The views are amazing!

Wall Street is closed due to rockfall, but the other half of the Navajo Loop is fine. Plenty of snow still on the ground. Little on the trail, but beware of mud (from melting snow) on the switchbacks closest to Sunset Point. Moderate traffic on a perfect Thursday afternoon.

Awesome trail!

Awesome trail!

Really pretty and easy hike. Perfect for kids! The cave is really beautiful with the icicles and the sign said they should still be frozen until June. Don't expect a rushing waterfall but it's still very pretty. There are three trails to the waterfall, two are closed as they walk along the bank and parts of the trail have fallen in but the furthest left one is open and is the same distance as the others and takes you to the same place. Trail ends at the waterfall but it looks like there's a (probably unauthorized) trail on the other side of the creek if you want to go further.

Absolutely great hike. A great length if you want something shorter than Fairyland Loop. At this time of the year it's extremely snowy and VERY SLIPPERY. I did it in my 5 year old nikes but I highly recommend boots with a lot of traction. Other than the snow, it is a very moderate and beautiful hike that takes you right against the hoodoos and canyon wall with a lot of ups and downs.
