I is great to see but it is funny how many other great sites there are around the park that you can see and how much attention Thor's Hammer gets. Worth taking the time and going to see for sure but don't miss everything else.

Another one of Bryce Canyons many rock formations, each as spectacular as the the next, all well worth a visit and scenery you will probably never forget, Yes the weather is thinning all the features on the park but they still have lots of life in them yet, and probably more features will crop up when these have gone, amazing...

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.
