Prepare for some down and upslope. But you'll go down into the canyon and see some totally amazing sights. Maybe not even 2 miles total loop, But the uphill climb requires a bottle of water and some rest stopping.

Viewing the hoodoos from the overlooks in the park is great but you really need to take a hike down into the ampitheatre to appreciate the beauty. This was a relatively easy hike - do it.

This is a must do hike! It's a bit strenuous, but well worth the effort. If you are unable to do the hike for whatever reason, doing it by horseback looked to be a fun option of getting close to the hoodoos.

This moderately difficult hike was worth every bit of the effort! The trail to and from the canyon floor brings you up close and personal with the hoodoos and provides an entirely new perspective of this wonderful place. Queen's Garden is a nice quiet/reflective place, as is the walk through the pines and wonders of the canyon floor! If able,... More

The views were very good. Generally a moderate hike but very steep at beginning and end. We are older but in good shape and I was dragging at the end

The most spectacular formations ever!! A must see along with Arches and Zion. If you can get up early after an overnight snow, do so. The snow will be gone by 10am. A combo of the 2 trails is the best option. Wall Street was closed, however. Can be extremely muddy, so hiking shoes are a must. After hiking the... More

Part of the Navajo loop was closed on our visit so we chose to continue on the queens garden loop rather than walk back the same way. Start with the Navajo going clockwise- wouldn't have liked to walk back up those switchbacks. The queens garden is spectacular and the whole walk made the Bryce experience-so much mores special. Can't recommend... More

I love this trail from beginning to end. It is a relatively easy hike that you can take at your own pace.THe views and things along the way are hard to describe.The end of the trail is an awesome sight overlooking where you have just come from.

Beautiful views and amazing natural arches. Landscape here is so weird! It was a bit strenuous, but nothing too crazy and lots of places to rest.

The lodge recommend this walk and we loved it. We were advised that it would take us around two hours. In fact it took us (two adults just about an hour including stopping for photos) walking at a reasonable pace. My husband did it a second time with two of our kids including a ten year old and it took... More
