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.

A beautiful, breathtaking hike that encompasses many of the attributes of Bryce Canyon. You get hoodoos, forest and slot canyon walls all in one hike! Take water, food and trekking poles, it's steep and hard on the knees but so worth it. Allow plenty of time, you'll spend a lot just staring up with your mouth open in awe!

You don't really get the sense of the hoodoos unless you descend down into the canyon. This trail is challenging enough to make you feel good but short enough to only take 2 hours. Last time I did this is was raining very hard so lovely to see today in the sunshine

I preface this review by stating I am a desk jockey and not in good shape, but this route is worth every step. Our route took us down the switchbacks from Sunset Point, through Wall Street and then along the rather flat section to Queen Victoria herself. Then comes the 650 foot climb out of the canyon.
