Bryce Canyon National Park in southwestern Utah is one of the strangest and 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! Read below for full details! June 12: Started by getting the first shuttle into the park. We stopped at the visitor center to get water for our packs. Then off to Sunset point. This was such a magnificent view early in the morning. Then we hiked along the rim, pretty easy, no elevation gain. We went to upper inspiration point, then to Bryce Point. From there, we hiked down into the canyon. We went via peekaboo loop trail. We went clockwise, which had some elevation gain, particularly steep in one spot. Great views! Once we intersected with Wall Street, we took that trail. We stopped to eat a snack once we hit the intersection of Navajo loop and queens garden trail. NAVAJO LOOP CLOSED AT THIS TIME DUE TO ROCK SLIDES AND WASHOUTS!!! We took Queens garden trail and stopped to see the famous queen hoodoo. Then up the super steep climb to sunrise point! This is very steep! Make sure you have water! It was such an accomplishment once we got to sunrise point to see where we came from. We decided to keep going and make it back to Sunset point to pick up the shuttle. This part was easy and flat. This took us a total of four hours. Sunset point later in the day is beautiful, but not as magnificent as earlier in the morning.

Beautiful Hike! Wonderful, short, family hike; Safe and fun for all. There is a creek, with a gorgeous waterfall. Fun place to cool off after hiking Bryce or Kodachrome Basin.

Jaw dropping beauty!! No words for wha waits around every corner!

I was able to do this at sunrise & the way the sun hits the hoodoos absolutely lit them up like LIGHTS!! Magnificent!

Beautiful! But definetely a workout. We went in June and it was not crowded. But the hike back up is pretty brutal.

nice little trail. would definitely be more interesting in winder with frozen waterfalls in the cave

Awesome trail. astonish views. quite long with good elevation gain. but the trail is clean and easy to follow.

steep coming back!!

Parts of Navajo loop were shut down, so we hiked Wall Street to Queen’s Garden to Sunrise Point back to Sunset Point where we were parked. Beautiful day! Beautiful trail. The hike up to Sunrise was a real cardio workout. Trekking poles are not necessary, but they helped us on our trek down and back up. We also saw so many tourists who were not wearing proper footwear. I would recommend boots with good tread and stability around ankle. Things to see on this trail: Thor’s Hammer, Wall Street, Queen Victoria, and of course the many gorgeous HooDoos.

amazing trail, great views

Big initial drop from Bryce Point was a harbinger of the long walk back up the canyon, but the trip was so spectacular that the sights are all that will be remembered. 1,400 elevation drop seemed like more. Overall a great hike and unforgettable views of the hoodoos

This trail has some really nice vantage points leading to the Queen. The rocks can be a bit tricky so wear closed toe shoes. the walk back up is intense, so bring lots of water.

awesome view, we had to go down wallstreet because the other direction was closed

beautiful hike!

Very cool but I recommend the longer trails as these can get pretty busy

We almost skipped Bryce Canyon as we only had a day to spend here. Man am I glad we came. This is a GREAT way to see what Bryce has to offer. We started at Sunset Point and followed Navajo Trail down Wall Street. The views here heading into the canyon are breathtaking. After clearing the two big pines at the bottom of the decent, you follow a dry river bed and begin to wonder if you’ve seen it all. Once you get on Queens Garden Trail and begin your hike up and out of the canyon bottom you realize that Bryce has A LOT more to see. Ascending out of the amphitheater is something I’ll never forget. Absolutely breathtaking. This trail is a must do.

Note that the "partial closure due to fire" has been lifted. I found Plenty of water at all sites too. hiked solo from rainbow point to Bryce point in 2 days and one night at swamp canyon. not my favorite backpacker in all honesty. First half was relatively uninteresting with a memorable long section through unpleasant burnt Forest. Tough hiking across a myriad of surfaces, with some neat vistas and the majority of the time spent in dense forest and on back trails without much to see. day 2 is far more scenic, but the hiking is tough. last 4 or so miles are straight up and out of the canyon with little shade. I'd recommend this trail if youre looking to do some distance - it takes quite a long time on the trail (I'm usually quite speedy but spent something like 12-16hrs hiking) to move 23 miles! if you're only in Bryce for a few days, try some of the longer day hikes or possibly do swamp canyon to Bryce point in one day. I wouldn't hike it again, nor as a 3 day version since fires aren't allowed below the Rim. Bryce is bear country too, so be vigilant and practice safe food storage!

Navajo Loop was closed so doubled back on Queens garden trail. peekaboo loop has some good, challenging incline and stunning views the entire way. Bring lots of water!

This trail is amazing. Did it on a Saturday morning and the crowds were not as bad as I had expected. Be sure to bring lots of water! The views were the best we saw in the whole park!

Hiked Peekaboo and part of Navajo today from 11a-3p. Great hike! Started at Bryce point and hiked Peekaboo clockwise. The first half of Peekaboo had switchbacks and ran along the canyon wall so it might make some people nervous. But it’s wide enough in most parts to allow two people to walk side by side. We saw some people on the trail, so I would consider it light to medium traffic. Very cool seeing the hoodoos up close and going through a couple of tunnels. Sat down to eat under a tree at the junction between Navajo and Peekaboo. When we switched over to the Navajo trail, it got a lot more crowded going up to Wall Street. This was our first slot type canyon. It was cool to see but really crowded since it isn’t far from Sunset Point. The other half of Navajo (Two Bridges side) was closed. We headed back to finish the other half of Peekaboo and followed a group horses up the trail. Pretty impressive to see horses manage the trail that high on the slope. Hiking out from the bottom was a lot of work but doable. There isn’t much shade closer to the top of the canyon, but there are enough trees from a quick break here and there. Deeper in the canyon, you can get some shade by the hoodoos. This was our first hike in Bryce, so I don’t know what the other hikes are like, but I’d recommend it for anyone wanting to see Bryce up close.

Nice little hike though there were a lot of closed signs for trails going up to the Arches and the turret arch.

Great trail. Why it’s rated hard, not sure. Lots of ups and downs, plenty of shade to find! But excellent trail!

Beautiful hike. Very crowded.

Phenomenal trail with incredible views. Would recommend the counter-clockwise direction. Trail is double-wide and completely non-technical. Should be rated moderate, at best. A must-do while in Bryce Canyon!

What a phenomenal hike. I know there’s been debate about clockwise vs counter-clockwise, but I really don’t see how you can go wrong in either direction. Time of day matters, whether the sun is out or not certainly matters, and if you’re just a speed hiker or stop every 100 feet for pictures matter. As for us, a couple in our mid -50s, stopping for views and getting an early start are what we’re about. That said, we left at around 0715 from the Fairyland Canyon Trail head and went clockwise at the suggestion of a park ranger. It was sunny and mid-60s when we started and sunny mid-70s when we ended. The best views depend on what you like better, wide open sweeping vistas of rolling multi-colored hills with trees and hoodoos sprinkled in (sunrise point side of the hike) or the more closed in canyon experience with hoodoos and interesting fins and spires on the canyon walls (canyon trailhead side of the loop). I prefer the latter so having the early morning sun light up the rock faces was spectacular. However, going clockwise and starting at 0715 means you have to stop and look back. Which was some of the best advice a previous review said. Look up, down, and all around. Frequently. If you do this counter clockwise you’ll be hiking up from the bottom of the canyon at the end of the hike when the sun isn’t as low in the sky. A truly different experience than hiking in the amphitheater but no less awesome. Bring plenty of battery life, have plenty of space on your photographic instrument of choice (mines a DSLR), and enjoy the hike. A LOT less crowded than the amphitheater and consequently more of a backcountry experience.

Not too bad all. Definitely something so experience and see up close!
