I believe I walked part of this trail when I visited Bryce Canyon. As we were walking down the trail to the bottom I remember the wind ripped through the canyon and blew red rock sand into our face...quite the scare.

Fairly easy if not worrisome to do with a baby stroller, but the views are totally worth it. Alas, I made a wrong turn and didn’t get far.

It’s open. Elevation changes aren’t bad.

Easy paved trail up to a beautiful view of sunrise point. Also easy access to sunset point if you’re not looking to walk very much

This is a concrete walkway from Sunset to Sunrise Points. Although not as good a view as Bryce Point, it is stunning all the same and gives you a different perspective of the view from Bryce Point.

Beautiful view at sunrise! If you time it right, you can light up Thor’s Hammer with the sun.

Super easy, a bit muddy but nothing compared to the other nearby trails. The view at Sunset is gorgeous.

Paved trail but has spectacular views

Great views. A bit muddy, microspikes are almost a must even though we saw a lot of people without them. Would recommend to anyone coming to Bryce.

Great views. A lot of people.

Best way to see Bryce Amphitheater!! Lots of elevation changes and both rolling/steep hills - totally worth it once completed!!

Not much to say about this one - paved path with amazing views. It gets much windier up on the rim versus down in the canyon, so be sure to bring appropriate layers if visiting in the colder months.

Great paved path along the rim of the canyon. Anyone ranging from small children to the elderly can complete this short path. Has awesome views of the canyon and can be part of the Navajo Loop. We parked right at the top of Sunrise Point which was handy as we didn't have to mess with the shuttle.

Wouldn't call it a hike. Paved scenic trail, yes, but lots of photo-ops and no elevation. Great exposure to the hoodoos for folks with a dog, though, since the other trails don't allow my mutt.
