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

This is a popular route that allows you to get eye to eye with parts of the canyon. If you aren't a regular hiker the ascent and descent may be a bit tough on your legs but it is worth it.

Family of four (sons 15 and 11) were staying on the east side of Zion National so we decided to drive up to Bryce Canyon last Monday. After our stop at the visitor center, we drove to the Sunset Point stop and found plenty of parking at 9:30 a.m. We did the Navajo Loop/Queens Garden/Sunrise Point trail highlighted in the... More

We were so impressed with the view from the top of the Canyon we just had to do the hike down in amongst the Hoodoos, we were not disappointed. The hike is moderate but take your time and enjoy what is around you. Definitely start at sunrise point and finish at sunset point, the walk is much easier that way,... More

Extremely varied scenery as you descend and then ascend again. Because it's a loop, it never gets boring. Doable by people in reasonable health as long as you take your time and carry water. Takes about 2+ hours total. Make sure to do the loop clockwise like the park recommends, because the exit at Sunset Point is very steep, and... More

You hike a total of about 3 miles. You are hiking among the hoodoos and ponderosa pines. The scenery is incredible. If you see a ponderosa (which you will see hundreds) with what looks like streaks of black tar smell them. They start accumulating this look at about 75 years old. The smell is very similar to vanilla extract. Some... More
