This is in Bryce Canyon, starts with a zig zag down into the Canyon, easy walk, but a long climb out at the end. Take loads of water and wear decent footwear - NO flip flops or loose sandals.

This is a moderate hike, but take water and take your time. There is not much air. This has been called one of the best 3 mile hikes in the world. I don't know about that, but this is amazing. Rather than go back up the way you came, walk over the the connection to the Navajo Trail loop and... More

At a normal elevation, this would be a walk in the park but so high up you won't be able to speed round. However the spectacular hoodoos mean you'll stop for photos constantly. The landscape is beautiful and as you come back up to the rim there are beautiful views into the far distance. Well worth the trip.

all of the trails in Bryce are really nice, so it's hard to choose one-- but this loop has a wonderful variety of scenery, great views and is perfect for a morning hike.

We went down Navajo from the Bryce Point side and back up Queen's Garden. It was a great hike but a big elevation change on both sides. I think Queen's Garden was definitely gentler than Navajo. The views and the size of everything is amazing.

You drop 520 feet down to the canyon floor. That's easy. Climbing the 520 feet back up at 8,000 feet of elevation is not. That being said, this is a GREAT hike. Fabulous scenery, excellent, very safe and well marked trails - both the Navajo and Queen's. This is a "must do" if you are in Bryce and enjoy hiking.... More

I did this trail with my husband and two kids, ages 9 and 11. Most of the trail is easy, until the end when you have to hike back up. Still, if you take your time and stop for the dozens of pictures you're likely to take, it can be done with little trouble. Keep your eyes open for the... More

Yellows,oranges,creams are the colours of the rocks & hoodoos interlaced with the bright greens of the trees & bushes. A stunning place - totally unique.

This is a must do for anyone looking to hike into the canyon but only has a few hours. Even if you have more time, I suggest getting this loop in on the way to peek a boo loop or somewhere else. Start at sunrise point and follow the signs down towards the queens garden, make sure you stay off... More

Awesome. Can be done in 3 hours. Try to be in the Wallstreet section of the Navaho train when the sun is shining down into it
