Rim trail access point is closed and peekaboo end blocked less than a mile in. Couldn’t start this trail. Driving down to sunset point to try to enter from that side.

Rim Trail is CLOSED if you are looking to do this entire trail. You’ll have to either go out-and-back or take the surface road back to your start. Otherwise, great views and beautiful vantage points.

We started at 7.30am. Parked on Bryce Point parking. Went clockwise. There were absolutely no people in the entire park till 9am. Rim part of trial is closed from High Inspiration point to Bryce point. Walked to parking lot on Bryce road for about 3 miles. Because of that, add at least 2 miles to total milage. Total time with a lot of picture stops is 5.5 hours. Definetly the trial is not hard but moderate. Strongly recommend.

Truly one of the most beautiful hikes you’ll ever do. We started 5 minutes after sunrise, and the views and lighting were FANTASTIC! Starting with Rim Trail means you go clockwise, and that’s definitely the best route. 4 hours 11 minutes with A reasonable pace and kits of photo stops. The trip up at the end is grueling and the only part of the trail that would qualify as hard, otherwise, it’s generally moderate.

My favorite hike in Bryce. Recommend doing this with the other loops that are adjacent. You will be in heaven in the magical hoodoos.

HikingGreat!

This was a really spectacular hike! Not too challenging and there is a surprising amount of diversity in scenery. Started from the Sunset campground (awesome place to camp btw) and walked up to the ridge to join the trail, going counter clockwise. It was fun to walk along the ridge seeing hoodoos from above, and then descend to where they are at eye level, before ascending back up the canyon. Between all the major view points, which are busy, the trail was not at all crowded, an especially welcome reprieve after visiting Zion. Gorgeous views all around, definitely prioritize this route if you want a solid hike and only have one day to see Bryce.

This is an awesome trail. Took us a little over 3 hours. It is crowded but is totally manageable. We took infrequent photo breaks but I still got some awesome pics!

Amazing hike around the biggest attractions of Bryce. The trail is dusty but well maintained. No rock scrambling, just switchbacks to handle the elevation gains. The views from the rim and inside the canyon are gorgeous. There are a LOT of other hikers and tourists on this trail, so be patient. The farther away from the canyon rim (and parking lots), the fewer other people around. Parking is scattered about. When you go during the busy times, you will either have to drive around to find a good parking spot, or park farther away and hike in. There are restrooms near the parking lots.

Very fun and beautiful hike. It took us right at 4 hours to complete. The only downfall is the horse dropping smell that the end of peekaboo, so prepare for that

Fitbit cut out on me and I lost 2 miles on this hike mileage wise but we did all three loops for sure! Amazing hike! The last mile was a killer for me though - was exhausted!

It didn’t let me finish my last review! Here are tips: My husband and I are in shape. It took us only 6 hours to do all of this (tons of photo taking and some snack breaks!) Dress in layers. As you go up and down the temp changes. If you only have time for a few: Queens garden & Navajo loop. Enjoy and bring lots of water!

This was SUCH a beautiful hike. Gorgeous views. And the second half of it is flat and across with views of all of Bryce Canyon. However please be careful during the Navajo part because it does get a little crowded. We did go on a Sunday which could have been a factor.

Did the trail today. Started at 10am at Bryce Point towards Rim Trail/Wall Street. For a Monday, there was plenty of parking at Bryce Point. The views are just jaw dropping and amazing. These loops will allow you to see almost all of Bryce in one day and was amazing. Probably our favorite hike. Spent from 10am - 2:45pm doing the whole trip. This includes tons of photos, a long lunch break, and a few breaks. Exhausting last inclines from Peekaboo back up to Bryce Point, but soo worth every minute.

HikingGreat!

Completed in 4 hours including time for rest and photos. The beginning is a bit boring because there wasn’t much to see. Once you hit Peekaboo, begin sharing the trail with horses (or mules?) so be prepared of the smell. I’d recommend ditching the first segment and start directly from Navajo Trail.

Great loop, you see most of what there is to see and Al the shuttle drive gets credit for the suggestion! We started at 9 finishing at around 1:30 before it got really hot.

Great hike. Definitely recommend starting early and doing the rim trail first to Wall Street and the bridges as those get super crowded. Then continue on out if Peekaboo. Not many people at all coming out of Peekaboo. Arrived at Bryce Point at 9am on a Saturday and was able to get parking but was almost full.

Such a great way to see Bryce Canyon! I was literally stopping for pictures every 30 seconds. Thought the hike itself was pretty moderate. The climb up Peekaboo is the only semi-steep part, but the 360° views will hopefully distract you. Took me about 3.5 hours - was moving pretty quickly aside from the copious picture stops.

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.
