We loved the surreal scenery of Bryce Canyon and it's gallery of sandstone sculptures but didn't like how crowded some trails were. After seeing the popular sights (Navajo Trail and Queens Garden) leave the crowds behind and hit the Under-the-Rim Trail. We're avid hikers and found this trail to be strenuous, especially coming back uphill in the heat, but it's... More

It has some stunning views, but I ended up hiking too far because I didn't realize I had merged onto another trail. As I was hiking through the hodoos, I felt like I was in an iMax movie because I was so close to them.

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, Under-the-Rim Trail and the rim. We hiked Under-the-Rim Trail from down to up point. It was... More

There are several factors that should be considered when planning to hike this trail; these are common sense for seasoned hikers but should be heeded by those that think this hike is a pleasant, light-hearted excursion. I have listed these criteria in no certain order but they should all be considered in their relation to each other. 1: Consider you... More

Escape the hordes by hiking the Under-the-Rim Trail, a little used trail into the heart of Bryce Canyon. Continuous elevation changes, limited water (only consistently available at Yellow Creek and Iron Springs) and Black Bear activity (Iron Springs was closed when I hiked the trail due to frequent bear sightings) mean few attempt the trail. Lack of traffic and monsoon... More

When visiting this wonderful Canyon, one must get those hiking boots on and explore all it has to offer.

Seeing the hoodoos from above the rim is a special panorama. Being below the rim, among them, is a different perspective that shouldn't be missed.

The initial part of this trail is rather boring as you meander for some time through piney forests. However, we were the only one in sight and after a journey, you arrive at the magnificence of Bryce Canyon National Park -- just from the other side.

This is a trail that connects trails making one long one. Bryce is not known for long hiking trails, but this one is an exception.
