This trail is fantastic, gives you endless beauty with less people (less than the Navajo Loop or Queens Garden). The Peek A Boo trail is a 3 miles roundtrip - sometimes a bit hard, sometimes easy. Do not miss it! The Wall of Windows is gorgeous! I recommend you to hike the following trail in a clockwise direction: Navajo Loop... More

Fewer people hike this route than the more popular Navajo route so it is much more peaceful. There is a connecting path between the two routes so if you are a regular hiker you can link the two in a figure of eight. To get all the joy of the routes without excess descent and ascent I suggest starting from... More

It took almost 3 hours to hike this trail, partly due to the heat, the elevation & the weaving in,out,up & down between the hoodoos. One minute you were down on the canyon floor, then climbed high on a level with the top of them. It seemed every turn gave a different view of the canyon. Beautiful! Only downside -... More

We combined the Peek-A-Boo hike with other canyon hikes and it was great. Absolutely need to do drop down into canyon to get the best view and sense of the hoodoos and Bryce.

Having read all the previous reviews for “Peek-A-Boo” loop, I am in total agreement that this hike is off the charts spectacular. If you have a chance to experience this hike in Bryce, do it and make sure you bring your camera with you. This is one great place to take pictures because you don’t need to be a pro... More

We did the Navajo - Peek-A-Boo loop. It was raining off and on (yeah, the "monsoon season" apparently), but this 3-4 hour hike was spectacular. Very muddy. Very crowded at the beginning and end (along the Navajo trail), but we were almost alone on the Peek-A-Boo trail (we did it on a Sunday as a day trip from Zion N.P.).... More

Wow. This was one hell of an experience to be honest. First of all, we went when there were MONSOONS. Lightning, thunder, down pour, yeah. It is straight down, then up and down, then straight up. If it rains it gets really muddy, but we were fine. It's over 5 miles roundtrip, and they say 1500 feet climb, but that's... More

This is the much quieter portion of the Figure 8 hike, with spectacular payoffs for the up and down effort it requires. Amazing views, beware of horse droppings and their associated flies as horses share the trail. You'll see hoodoos and windows with spectacular views at each turn. Leave early for your Figure 8 from Sunrise Point and the Navajo/Queen's... More

And that's how you add a few more miles to your hike. It was 100% worth it, even tho the vertical climb they list in the park newspaper is waaaaaay under the actual accumulated feet climbed. They fail to mention that you go up and down and up and down a LOT, eventually topping out at 1500 ft when you... More

it is a great kind of tired when you finish this. it is not this hike that is the tiring part but if you finish it with the Navajo loop as we did, the finishing switchbacks will tire you out. the views are worth all the effort. being right next to the towers, hoodoos, windows and other formations is very...
