We were lucky enough to be in Bryce Canyon when the temperatures were in the 50's the day we decided to do some hiking. They had just gotten snow the day before, so the trail was snowy, muddy and slippery in some spots, but nothing we couldn't navigate. So glad we decided to go, despite the muddy conditions. The day... More

If you're in Bryce, you need to make time for this hike. It is a fairly short well developed set of trails It is a bit steep coming back up the canyon but it is well worth the effort to be among the deep red hoodoos. You feel a bit like you are walking through a fairyland and little sprites... More

If you are doing your vacation right, you are not sticking to the scenic drive, taking quick looks at the scenery and snapping pictures. The best way to experience any national park, but especially Bryce, is to take a hike. My family and I hiked down the Navajo Loop via Wall Street and up and out the Queens Garden. I... More

What a great way to see the hoodoos! We were there in the winter, but there was not much snow. Make sure and take waterproof boots, the mud can get pretty bad.

If you have time for one hike to do in Bryce this is the one. There are unforgettable 360 degree views in every direction. The hike up is graded so you can take your time. Took us less than three hours and we took our time.

Best combination-Navajo Trail is a bit short just by itself, but linking it with Queen's Garden is fantastic. You really get to see a wide selection of Hoodoos and other rock formations. It's a pretty easy hike too, apart from the steepness of Navajo Trail. My group did it at an easy walking pace in about 2 hours.

Hiking into Bryce Canyon via the Navajo/Queen's Garden Loop is well worth the effort. It is steep, and pretty heavily traveled but getting down into the canyon and being able to see all the hoodoos up close is many times better than just looking over the edge of Bryce from a viewpoint. We hiked down Queen's and up Navajo, after... More

We actually did this hike twice we loved it so much. It's long - be prepared. Take lots of water and DO NOT FORGET YOUR CAMERA!

Beautiful hike and our 8 and 6 year old were able to manage it. However, they had real hiking boots and this is important due to loose scree on the trail and risks of falling.
