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.

Nice short hike. The last section to the cave is short but a moderate climb. The waterfalls are nice as well. I think the best part of the hike are the views of the hoodoos. Good for families. My 7yr old loved the river and waterfall. It was a perfect evening hike after eating pizza in Tropics. .

My husband and I did this loop counter clockwise today. It was amazing! The views are spectacular and none of the crowds like Zion. Highly recommend! Bring lots of liquid and sunscreen!

It’s nice views and short dog friendly trail!!

One of the most incredible hikes I’ve completed to date. Gorgeous views the entire way. Strenuous in the heat and the last stretch is the most challenging. Bring plenty of water. Completed counter-clockwise.

the view from trailhead was amazing but gave it 3 stars because the trail loop was closed.

Started at 7:30 am on Tuesday, 4/23/19 from Queen’s Garden as other reviewers mentioned. 6.5 miles took a leisurely 3 hours with lots of time to rest and marvel at the whimsical hoodoos. Some icy patches here and there, but you can easily walk around or over them so no need for traction. Poles might have been helpful for last ascent back to the rim, but not necessarily. Had the place to myself for a couple hours on the canyon floor and rye weather was perfect. This place makes me smile!

Navajo loop was closed due to snow but I did the Queens garden trail.
This trail is total value for time spent. Stunning views of the hoodoos with every step!
You descend into the Bryce amphitheatre from sunrise point and the path ends at Queens garden where there is a hoodoo shaped like a Queen.

Flat and paved trail that has fantastic views of the Bryce amphitheatre!

Great trail to get down into the amphitheater. A little steep to start, but well worth the effort!

Amazing! We went counter clockwise from Fairyland which I think was a good way to go.. we began with a lot of up/down and ended with a flat stretch. It was about 8 miles or a little more total. I’d say it’s moderate for difficulty. Well-marked trail. Mud was not an issue at this time.

Yesterday, started at the Fairyland Loop trailhead and went clockwise. It was a difficult (length and altitude) but amazing hike with unbelievable scenery. It was not crowded at all which made it even better. Today, I went counterclockwise and found it *much* easier because the climbs were broken up a bit more, resulting in a relatively easy final climb compared to yesterday (which made the hike a lot more enjoyable).

Beautiful hike. Very different from Peekaboo which is amazing given they are in the same Canyon. It is NOT 7.4 but rather 8.8 miles based on Garmin Fenix5S GPS - and other comments. Very little mud and nothing you have to go through - around also works!

beautiful, muddy, steep and a great day trip

Short fun hike!

We started from the visitors center and walked on the bike trail to Sunrise point, then to Queen’s Garden, Navajo Loop was closed, then we did the PeekABoo Loop. The views were amazing throughout. There were patches of snow along the PeekABoo Loop. It was a great hike, be ready for lots of accents and descents throughout the hike, especially the uphill climb on the way back!

This is a flat, paved track between two viewpoints along the rim overlooking the amphitheatre. Beautiful views and extremely easy.

Did the loop counterclockwise from Sunrise Point. Trail was muddy in places, but not bad at all. Sun came out in the afternoon & it got hot! Great views for most of the way - highly recommend! The complete looks was close to 9 miles with a lot of up & down - Image it would be tough in the summer heat.

As of 4/20, this trail is closed by the normal route but can still be completed if you start at Queen’s Gardens, which starts at Sunset Point. This ups the distance to 6.5 miles. It’s a beautiful trail with stunning views of the hoodoos and isn’t particularly challenging. There is still a little snow and it is muddy, but you don’t need snow spikes or anything. I would recommend boots though due to the mud.

Good view but similar view if you stay on Fairyland Loop

Great views.

Nice, relatively easy hike. Great scenery and not very crowded.

Amazing views

We went counterclockwise starting at fairyland point. It was a beautiful trail with a lot of stunning views. You get to see a lot of the park not many get to see, and similarly, the trail is much less crowded than many other trails. We finished in a little under 3 hours. Most of the trail was smooth going, but a few spots were muddy from where snow was melting higher up.

We started at Sunset Point and followed the Rim Trail and did the Fairyland Trail counter clockwise. Some mud early in the hike. Epic views. Some nice shade and places to sit and enjoy the hoodoos. This was the last hike on our trip to Utah and we all 4 felt like it was a hard hike. The last 3 miles were pretty much uphill. We were thrilled to have the trail mostly to ourselves. Next time we would do this trail clockwise starting at the Fairyland Loop parking lot.

It was a four and a half hours trail and beautiful. It is really recomended to wear proper shoes and to be used of some hiking. Bit I thought it was less strenous as it stated.

Awesome trail. Such a great trail to see everything the park has to offer!

Beautiful, challenging trail. Went counter clockwise around the loop, starting on the Rim trail from the Fairyland viewpoint. Some muddy spots and one snowy spot but nothing major.

A really nice easy trail just outside the Bryce Canyon pay area (I.e. free to all). Some mild to moderate inclines to get up to Mossy Cave and the waterfall but very manageable- my 65 year old mother with knee problems was able to see both with short breaks. Very scenic with payoffs for such an accessible, easy trail. Only reason this was a 4 star for me was the hike itself was very short and not a “fun” hike but very much worth the sights!
