We connected Queens, Navajo, and Peekaboo... honestly I would skip Peekaboo. It smelled horribly of horse shit. The rest was great.

This was one of my favorite hikes ever!! We moved at snails pace because every step had amazing 360 views and we couldn’t resist stopping to take photos and stare! The Peekaboo portion is pretty easy, mostly descent although it is quite exposed and it’s fun to walk through the spire formations. The Wall St portion was nicely shaded and then finishing with the amazing views of the rim hike were perfect! Brings lots of water as much of the trail is quite exposed. We started out at 7:30am and the parking lot was near empty when we arrived at the trailhead, although it was full once we finished at around 10:30. This covers quite a bit of the park and I’d probably rate it more towards the harder end of moderate than truly hard.

I’m out of shape but this trail was so worth it! I’ve never experience anything like this trail. It’s was so beautiful! Lots of up hills and downhills, I started getting blisters so I am happy I brought my first aid kit that had tape. It was hot but bearable.

If you’re going to do one hike in Bryce Canyon it should definitely be Peekaboo!! Seeing the hoodoos from above is incredible, but nothing comes close to actually wandering through them for miles. Highly recommend!!

Absolutely breathtaking. The rock formations are absolutely beautiful and there is a lot of wildlife to see. I would highly encourage this hike.

Hard to say this is hard. There are elevation changes. But the trail is well marked and the slope is never over the top. It does require some physical preparedness. Nice one!

Definitely would agree with others that this isn't really "hard", more on the "moderate" side. Absolutely stunning views. Ended up stretching it out by following a few of the horse trails at the bottom and clocking around 15 miles for the day of hiking. This trail covers the park pretty well. I'd highly recommend it.

Gorgeous views, but most of the hike is on a pretty wide path and filled with people so definitely not as "out in the elements" as several red canyon hikes. Too many people were there for real social distancing. Plenty with kids seemed to not care about it. The path is closed when entering wall st trail / Navajo loop segments. We ended up going down horse trail instead to go up to sunrise point then walking back from the rim trail.

This is easily a top five moment for experiencing God’s greatness for me! Seven miles that you never want to end because every step just leaves you in awe. 360-degree breathtaking moments every step of the journey! Trail was dry, some fallen rock here and there, but nothing to worry about. YOLO so go for it!

Did this hike in the summer with not enough water. There were many tourists on the hike near the trailhead and lots of horse droppings along route. Besides the heat and navigating through people and horse excrement, the hike was very enjoyable. It is a great way to see many of Utah's incredible rock geology in a short hike.

Did it in 3h15 mins and started in the late afternoon. Ending the hike on an August day when the sun was low in the sky and breezes were passing through the canyon was welcome. Bring lots of water - I drank 3L. Hiking boots and a hat were helpful to have too

Great hike! Read below for full details! June 12: Started by getting the first shuttle into the park. We stopped at the visitor center to get water for our packs. Then off to Sunset point. This was such a magnificent view early in the morning. Then we hiked along the rim, pretty easy, no elevation gain. We went to upper inspiration point, then to Bryce Point. From there, we hiked down into the canyon. We went via peekaboo loop trail. We went clockwise, which had some elevation gain, particularly steep in one spot. Great views! Once we intersected with Wall Street, we took that trail. We stopped to eat a snack once we hit the intersection of Navajo loop and queens garden trail. NAVAJO LOOP CLOSED AT THIS TIME DUE TO ROCK SLIDES AND WASHOUTS!!! We took Queens garden trail and stopped to see the famous queen hoodoo. Then up the super steep climb to sunrise point! This is very steep! Make sure you have water! It was such an accomplishment once we got to sunrise point to see where we came from. We decided to keep going and make it back to Sunset point to pick up the shuttle. This part was easy and flat. This took us a total of four hours. Sunset point later in the day is beautiful, but not as magnificent as earlier in the morning.

Hiked from Bryce Point to Sunrise Point, 4.7 miles via Upper Peekaboo trail to Queens Garden trail. It was awesome! We are 59 and 57 years old. Took us 2 1/2 hours with photo stops. Didn’t rate it a 5, as we had to consistently walk over horse crap on the Peekaboo trail.

First to Review

decent choice for a long loop with some variety - it's going to be at the upper end of moderate no matter how you do it, but I'd avoid doing it clockwise and crawling up the steep hill to Bryce Point - I'd probably start at Sunset Point, walk up to Bryce Point, then work my way back to Sunset
