Only bad thing was that trail signage was lacking or confusing. Took us several times studying map and surroundings to get it. Not that there is any way to get "lost" but the Navajo trail is a loop and Garden Trail branches off from it at bottom and then when you reach the Queen's Garden it has a sign "trail... More

this is a very steep trail but worth the up close view of both the valley and special sites like Thor's Hammer

The Queens Garden/Navajo Loop Trail was a wonderful way to hike through Bryce. You will see a variety of incredible sights and the switchbacks at the end were not tough. Just take your time. We recommend going clockwise, as the park suggests. They say it is safer to go up the switchbacks rather than down, plus I enjoyed seeing the... More

We only had one day in Bryce--we were coming from the Grand Canyon North rim and heading from Bryce to Zion, where we spent three days. On paper, the plan looked excellent. We were aware that there might be rain, but we didn't anticipate as much rain and for so much of the day. Nonetheless, we had to make the... More

If you have to do only one thing in Bryce, then this is the One!!!. We started the trail at the Sunset point and ended on the Sunset point via the wall street loop. It took us about 3 hours to complete only because it was so photogenic, that my husband could not stop shooting the hoodoos. Trail is pretty... More

This is the way to go to see it all: Also, there are 3 photo points for the kids that if you present to visitor center afterwards, they give you a souvenir pin, kept my 13 yr old interested! They ask to see photos, so make sure you take clear shots. From the Sunset Point Trailhead follow the trail east... More

Walk this combo trail and you can say you really saw Bryce. Get close up to the hoodoos. Just be forewarned that this is a challenging trail on the way back up for those 40+. Happy trails.

This is a fab walk- took us about 2 hours of slow pace walking. My suggestion is to go into the canyon via Sunset because it is significantly steeper. It is an easier walk out up Sunrise point. The hoodoos are beautiful and the perception on the canyon floor is soooo different than from the rim. I loved this walk-... More

This was the only hike we did, but it was pretty spectacular. Smooth walking path and easy to handle for any age. Bring water. It's hot and the hike takes about 2.5 hours.

Not familiar with Utah's national parks, we enlisted the services of Southwest Adventure Tours to show us the highlights of the park. This was his recommendation: to walk down (and back up) the whole loop and it was well worth the cardio workout! The hoodoos are awesome from the top viewing points but, looking up at them from the bottom... More
