The view from the rim is great, but get down into the amphitheater and walk around. The colors really pop when you are up-close and it is an incredible experience to look around you and see nothing but these otherworldly geologic features.

Quite a trek to get back up to the rim again but recommend this trail for those who want to get up close with the hoodoos and rocks and trees. We visited in January with quite a lot of snow, off the main trodden paths it was up to knee deep. On the slopes or areas of freeze and thaw... More

The ascent/descent from the canyon ridge to the floor was a little hairy at times, but it was worth the beautiful views and hike from the canyon floor.

This is the best single hike in the park. We enjoyed the Fairyland Loop trail better, but in January the amount of snow can require snowshoes. We hiked this trail using ice crampons and it worked out fine.

This was my ideal length for a hike. It was long enough to get your heart rate up and see a lot of different aspects of the canyon, but it's not too long that you get bored. We started from the Wall Street side and coming up the other side was quite steep. I assume it's the same going the... More

This is a lengthy, wonderful hike that repeatedly ascends and descends again to the canyon floor. Gorgeous scenery!

Love the colors along the trail. Take some water. High altitude and first you hike down and down. Of course then you have to hike up and up. But it's one of the greatest hikes we've taken. Excellent!

Visited Bryce Canyon in winter. Despite of heavy snowfall I'm glad that I did this hike. This was probably one of the best hikes I have done in Utah. Highly recommend it. Even if you have just one day in park I would prefer doing this just hike.

excellent hike if you are even in a moderately reasonable shape not too long so it gives plenty of time to get other trails in the area done. very enjoyable and well maintained If you come in a colder season be sure to bring iron spikes for your shoes to prevent slipping on the ice.

The ranger recommended this hike to us. His suggestion was to start at the Queens Garden Loop and then go back up at to the rim via the Navajo trail (through wall street). It was really difficult going up and most people seemed to be going down that way. However I am glad we did it that way. If we... More
