This is a variation of the typically overcrowded Queens Garden Loop when the shuttle is running, which has the advantage of starting at Inspiration Point so that you may enjoy the fairly level, less crowded trail from Inspiration to Sunset Point, which offers excellent views into the Silent City area and is also home to large numbers of swallows DIRECTIONS: park your vehicle in Shuttle Parking (outside the park) or Overflow Parking (by the Visitor Center), take the free Park Shuttle which runs every fifteen minutes in season to Inspiration Point, first enjoy the view from the point, then walk along the Rim Trail to Sunset Point, descend on Navajo (or Wall Street if open), and ascend on Queens Garden (detouring on the short spur to see Queen Victoria) - the hike ends with ice cream at the General Store near the Sunrise Point parking lot, then take the free Park Shuttle or just walk the 0.7 miles back to your vehicle down the Multiuse Path if you left the vehicle in Overflow Parking - finally head south in your vehicle on the Scenic Drive to see Yovimpa Point, Bristlecone Trail, Rainbow Point, then Natural Bridge on the way back for a solid six hour day of the best Bryce has to offer

Awesome hike! Took a shuttle and started from Bryce point and then further along the trail. Not that much elevation and less crowds in the morning.

Excellent hike—really hits the highlights of Bryce Canyon. Lots of great viewpoints! The distance actually registered 3.8 Miles and elevation gain was 673 feet. We followed the exact trail.
