This may be the biggest hammer looking rock, but there are so many other similar hoodoos that you keep seeing more of them everywhere.

I mean - you HAVE to stop and see it, and it's WORTH it to do so, but there are SOOO many hoodoos, and vistas, and hikes ... that are even BETTER! Don't get me wrong, for viewing from the road, and not requiring you to leave the path, it's excellent, and everyone will know where you took that photo.... More

The view of Thor's Hammer via the Navajo trail is truly amazing. You are so close to this gravity defying rock formation although I had to hug the back wall of the trail a little as height made me slightly squeamish. The entire Navajo Loop is worth the hike as one beautiful red rock vista opens after another.

There's no place like Bryce Canyon! The red and orange sandstone sculptures are natural works of art. Thor's Hammer along the Navajo Trail is one of the iconic rock formations that Bryce is known for, but it's not the best example by a long shot. There is SO much more at Bryce and I highly recommend you get a pair... More

One of the most photographed spots in Bryce. You have to hike about half a mile to reach it, but worth the trip. I recommend doing the entire Navajo Loop as Wall Street is equally spectacular.

Very neat Formation, worth stopping to look at. Easy trail. There were a lot of people on the trail when we went. Bring water.

Cool formation - like so many in Bryce. Loved this amazing place and be sure to hike the trails - the exceptional views are worth the inclines.

One of the most popular formations along the Navajo Trial. It a big hoodoo along the northern fork of the trail. You'll have to hike a third of the way down the trail for it to be most noticeable.

Ok, so honestly, it's a rock formation, but what I want to advise you not to miss is the amazing vista that this formation sits right in the middle of!

In my opinion Bryce Canyon in Utah is one of the most amazing places in US and on the Earth with unreal/ un-Earthy breath taken experience. No words can describe it, you need to experience it. We hiked Queens Gardens, Navajo Loop, Picaboo Loop, and rim. Thor's Hammer is one of the many most impressive formations and the part of... More
