The Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail begins at Bryce Point and drops quickly to the canyon floor. Due to the rapid elevation change and the length this hike is considered strenuous and hikers are cautioned to be aware of this and the Horse/Mule Riders that you will encounter near the bottom of the trail. Please be courteous when meeting these trail rides and of others on the trail. Hikers should also carry plenty of water on this hike as well as others. There are restroom facilities near the bottom of the hike which are also shared with the trail rides. - NPS Website

descending from Bryce Point and then leaving the same way is truly the HARD way to see the Peek-A-Boo loop - you're really better served by parking at Sunset, descending Navajo or Wall street, walking the loop in the clockwise direction, then exiting by Navajo - OR, BETTER YET, taking the shuttle (in season) to Bryce Point, walking down to Peek-A-Boo, then walking the west (more scenic) half of the Peek-A-Boo Loop past the Wall Of Windows, and exiting via Queens Garden to Sunrise (this gives you a quick, scenic downhill into the amphitheater, you get to see the more scenic half of Peek-A-Boo, then it's an easy out via Queens Garden on the lower side of the amphitheater to the General Store where there are snacks, then take the shuttle back to your vehicle)

My favorite hike in Bryce when combined with the Navajo/Queen's Garden loop! I was surprised at the difficulty of this loop due to all the ups and downs, you definitely work for the views, but being amongst all those hoodoos is absolutely spectacular. There are hundreds of spots for pictures, and you get away from the crowds doing the Peekaboo Loop, a nice change from the other loops. You will feel like you are on the set of Star Wars at times. Highly recommend it but bring plenty of water and allow more time than you'd expect.

Great hike when combined with Queens Garden, Wall Street and Rim trails. This makes for the nicest day hike in a stunningly beautiful park. Bring traction devices in late fall, winter and early Spring.

Challenging, but worth it. Lots of elevation gains/losses, but AMAZING vistas to be seen. Wear good hikers and take plenty of water!

Very picturesque. Views are great. Moderate climb although there are some good steep parts. A guy told me it would be 55-65 degrees on desert floor. He lied. Wind was 20 mph and temp was 37 when I got there at 10:30. I used socks as gloves and shirt as headdress for warmth. But it was great hike. My Apple Heath app said I did 6.6 miles and 144 floors. No bad.
