Loved this hike—took many pictures and still could have taken more! We went down Navaho Loop and then counter-clockwise around Peek-a-Boo before heading back up Wall Street. We just started hiking last fall and are from a lower-altitude State, so this was quite challenging for us senior citizens. I’m just slower than most people—took us awhile, but we also waited quite a bit once we got to Wall Street. It became very crowded with some families not interested in sticking to the trail or observing social distancing. We actually helped one family retrieve their little one (5 yrs. maybe?) who had gone off the path and couldn’t get back up. Fortunately, our hiking pole came in very handy!

Amazing. Views! Views views! And its open! Very hilly and hot break lots of water food and be prepared to climb! It's 100% worth it though!

WOW. This trail exceeded my expectations. And for the record, it is OPEN! The views were constantly amazing -- literally everywhere we looked, there was something beautiful to look at. We stopped a ton for pictures, but we were able to get it done in 3.25 hours. I was super nervous about the elevation gain, but this version of the route makes it easier. There's still a steep incline on the way back up, but it was completely shady by 12pm. I also appreciated that the inclines throughout the trail were undulating, so we got some built-in breaks. We were pretty much alone on the trail until we circled back to the Wall Street section on the way out. I'd recommend doing this one earlier in the day to beat the crowds and also avoid some direct sun (very few shady spots). The trail is very well-marked, and there were no sketchy / narrow areas. If you're in Bryce, this is a great way to see a lot of the most popular sites in a short period of time.

Nature’s beauty at its best. The moderate rating is accurate, due to the switchbacks and inclines. We hit the trail just at sunrise 6:10am. Seeing the Canyon change colors as the sun rose was amazing.

This trail is a must!! Steep uphill at times but technically not difficult. STUNNING views and photo opportunities. We started at noon and it wasn’t crowded at all or too hot at any point. The only thing that got to us was the altitude as we come from a much lower altitude, so at times on peek-a-boo and the switchbacks to start/finish Navajo had us pretty winded. Nothing unmanageable. It’s a fantastic hike!

Great trail, great views! So glad we did it.

This is one of my favorite hikes anywhere! The weather was crisp and clear today, and not too crowded. We arrived at the parking lot around 2:30 p.m. and easily found parking. Had plenty of time to do Navajo loop and peekaboo loop and still have two more hours of daylight.

Trail is closed. You can only hike to just before the switch backs begin.

Awesome trail. Hiked today. The Wall Street side of Navajo Loop is closed. Peek-A-Boo was a blast. Didn’t wear micro cleats, but would have been helpful in a couple spots. Very few hikers on the trail.

Absolutely beautiful hike! Did it without spikes or poles, but it would have been helpful at times. Definitely need boots, too muddy for tennis shoes. The weather was perfect at about 40 degrees. the trail wasn't too busy in the morning but picked up around noon.

Beautiful in the snow. Easy to see the trail. Need spikes and trekking poles. A must. Lots of mud, snow, and ice. But with spikes a gorgeous hike.

Bryce is beautiful. Loved the hike. Bring spikes and tracking poles.

Warm temps during the day meant lots of muddy spots. Wear gaiters to protect your pants from mud splatters. There are still some slushy/icy spots in the shade, so the bottom line is, spikes are very helpful.

Beautiful winter hike around Bryce Canyon. Bring your crampons if you hike it in the winter. We also could have used our snow shoes, however left them in the truck! Very beautiful hiking location with every turn we took!

Great trail, but be prepared for the snow on the peekaboo section to be less packed than that on the Navajo trail. While the trail is moderate overall, expect a lot of up and down that ultimately bring you to amazing views.

Great trail. We added the loop through the Queens Garden. Many ups and downs which makes it hard. It was also harder because of the mud and the snow. But it is worth the effort. Hiking amongst all these hoodoos is a unique experience. Many spectacular views.
