You can see most of the famous hoodoos on this hike, Thor's Hammer, the Queen, and more. It is 500 feet or more of a climb, so be prepared. Good shoes, water are a must. Do it counterclockwise starting at sunset point, and ending at sunrise point. The climb at the end is more gentle that way.

This was actually easier than I feared. It looked as if it was going to be very steep but the actual trails have been well laid out and maintained and the colours and rock formations were amazing.

This is an amazing hike and a great way to get down into the Canyons. We went down the Queens Garden Loop and came back up the Navajo Loop. We are happy we did it this way as the hike down was a bit more gradual and easier on our "old" knees. We combined this with lunch in the Lodge,... More

Best trail... Steep down hill but a great walk among the hoodoos. Second half of Navajo trail was closed, walked to Sunrise area (2+ miles) very doable and beautiful. Easier to walk trail in this direction, tougher climb if u have to go back up the Navajo trail the way u came down

This is a great hike that will get you below the rim, but will not take a whole day. Combine this with a drive through the park for a full taste of Bryce.

All the trails offer great views, but if you're only going to do one hike while you're in Bryce, this is a great choice. You can either go down the Navajo Loop via Two Bridges or Wall Street. Personally, when Wall Street is open, I always take that way. There is just something so amazing about being down in that... More

A must do. It's not too difficult though it is steep in places. You can start either at sunrise or sunset point. Although marked fairly clearly, I would say the trail is easier to follow if you start at sunset point, go down, walk along the bottom to the queens garden and then walk back up to sunrise point and...

Took us about 2-2.5 hours to do the entire loop. Moderate exertion. Some elevation change. Dress accordingly.

At 8,000 elevation combining the 1.3 mile Navajo Loop Trail with 1.8 mile Queens Garden Trail is an enjoyable way to spend time in Bryce. Navajo Loop drops 550 feet from Sunset Point via a series of switchbacks that feed into The Wall, with high walls on either side and another series of tight switchbacks. After about ¾ mile you...

Need to be in decent shape, the hills can get you. Take plenty of water and wear a hat, there is little shade.
