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, went on a day where it was overcast. There was no rain, but it was around 70's so it was perfect weather. From hiking the trail it is not a popular one but still enjoyable and a great alternative to the busier trails around. There is a part on the north side of the trail the follows up a riverbed, didn't know if I was going the right direction, but luckily had a map with me just in case.

Spectacular is an understatement! Checked this off the bucket list in August. The weather was pleasant, wasn't too crowded. We started off at Sunrise Point, through part of the Navajo Loop, then Rim Trail back to Sunrise. The first third of the trail is a gradual descent down to the Queen's garden to see Queen V's formation.. PLENTY of photo ops for the formations through out. The last third has some steeper switchbacks through canyon walls that opens up to an expansive view of the canyon including Thor's hammer. Fabulous!!

Very short easy hike with a beautiful cave and a cool waterfall at the end. Worth the time.

Moderate difficulty, beautiful views, small stream emerging from the base of the mountain at the bottom. Morning is best because it gets pretty warm down there in the afternoon. We found an older gentleman on the trail on the way out, that we had to pack out the last half mile, a little dehydrated and leg pain.

Nice short hike but pretty steep climb out
Gorgeous views of the hoodoos

Great hike - early morning with 3 kiddos (10 & 9 yr old twins). We went in a clockwise direction (more shade as it started to warm up.
