Did it counter clockwise and the inclines weren’t too bad at all!

Gorgeous! The only downfall to this trail is the massive amounts of horse manure.

Views 10/10, crowd wasn’t so bad but we went somewhat early. Lots of up and down, which was nice so my calves got a break. -1 Star for the poop all over the trail, it was a wee bit stinky.

Arrived about 10, went straight to Bryce point to park immediately. Great hike with lots of connector trails.

A truly exceptional hike. Fantastic views start to finish. We hiked this loop clockwise and an old timer told us that was the way to do it. Though I don’t see going the other direction being any different. Start this one early if you want to avoid crowds.

Highly recommend this hike! I do agree that it’s a moderate hike versus hard because it’s not straight uphill. Lots of slopes which offer moments of rest. Can get very windy so I suggest bringing glasses to protect your eyes from the dust.

Beautiful hike with lots of spots to stop for photos. Went clockwise and it felt like were going downhill more often then uphill. Recommend doing two bridges or another connecting hike with this one that will only add a mile or two extra but the views will definitely be worth it.

Really gorgeous views throughout. It is all ups and downs so bring lots of water. Not as many people on the trail as expected but everyone was friendly! If you have 3-4 hours in your day, would recommend doing this in addition to the Navajo Loop trail.

Awesome trail - if you’re looking to go a little longer you can do sunrise point through queens garden to Navajo loop up to sunset back down Wall Street and then onto peekaboo loop to Bryce point (sounds complicated but it’s not!) ended up being 6 miles and took about 3:45 with a lot of stops for pictures. This place is amazing. The hike up to Bryce point was my favorite of the park. The shuttle will take you pack to your car at sunrise point. You can even take a shower for $3 at the outpost if you want to clean up! We stayed in Bryce, hiked the canyon in the morning and then continued onto Zion in the afternoon. Great vacation - two must see places. The pictures don’t do it justice, the place is amazing.

HikingGreat!

Amazing trail with wonderful views along the way! Much of it is in the sun, so go early to avoid crowds and the heat. We ended up going counterclockwise, but I’m not sure there is much of a difference - it’s ups and downs the entire way no matter which way you go! My thoughts on the moderate/hard debate: We are from the Midwest, where we live at 850 feet above sea level. It’s also very flat, so hiking at home you will never find a trail with a downhill that goes 700 feet down in a mile. I workout (dumbbells & total body workouts), am in relatively decent shape but have some IT band issues. My husband runs an average of 8 miles a day. I would classify the trail as hard but doable - the downhills were tough on my knees, and at elevation I was huffing & puffing the last 1/3 of the hike pretty good. My daily runner husband would classify it as moderate, as he’s in much better cardio shape than anyone who doesn’t regularly run or do something similar. I’m sure people who live at higher elevations and routinely have hikes with similar elevation gains/losses would consider this more moderate as well. I will say that none of the uphills or downhills were super steep or treacherous. If you’re in decent shape and want to see some beautiful views, I say go for it! We also didn’t see any horses. The horse poop was a little annoying but not a deal breaker.

It's not a hard trail at all, it should be considered moderate. It was my longest hike I've ever done, which shows you what kind of amateur I am, and I do think it shouldn't be marked as hard. Beautiful views. I went counter clockwise and it was fine, but I think it would have been just as nice if I went clockwise. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Absolutely stunning amazing views and the queens garden was amazing of how the rock formation was so similar to the statue. We did Navaho Loop, Queens Garden, Peekaboo Loop and Wall Street. Was a long hike but got to see everything in one trip.

Loved this hike. The views were amazing and constantly changing. We also combined it with the queens garden and Navajo Loop for total eight miles round-trip. Out of the three loops, this was our favorite, the wall section of the Navajo loop was also awesome. We’ve heard this height can be hot, but we had a particularly frigid day with high winds. Bit of a freak storm that came through. The trails were all well maintained.

I started at 8:30 am, but should have started an hour earlier! I went clockwise at the advice of the guide on the bus; he said the shade would be better. **I wish I had gone counter clockwise though because the climb out at the end was so strenuous it almost ruined the experience : ( Very beautiful, and I will do this hike again!

We rode horseback from Bryce Canyon trails rides. Great bunch of cowboys and cowgirls running the show . We did the 8 am 3 hr ride. We checked in at stables due to COVID -19 no lodge checkin . This was a great way to see the Canyon . Highly recommend doing the horses .
