It is probably the longest trail in Bryce and it requires good planning. It requires a permit if you want to do the whole trail - it is 23 miles one way. it is impossible to do this trail in one day. Even the "fittest fit" person capable of such a crazy thing should not do it because they would... More

So many trails that you want to walk them all. Just like in the photo the sky is so blue against the different color dirt. So beautiful.

Excellent trail with beautiful views of the red rock pinnacles and the valley below. you can start it at different points as it follows the park road and you can walk for one hour or a couple of day. It is not, as a few reviewers indicate, particular challenging for a person with average fitness. There are ups and downs,... More

Bryce is magnificent! You must see it at sunrise and sunset to get the best colors. The product of sedimentary rock and erosion, it is full of HooDoos -- pinacle-like rock formations. Great views from the Rim. Walking under the Rim is a special experience. But, be aware that the trail can be steep and slippery (loose rock, pebbles, and... More

This is a good trail that has a lot of different environments. It is definitely hot if the sun is out, there are shady areas but also spots where you feel like you are baking! Take at least 3 bottles of water per person. Great views, steep at the ends, very few people on this trail.

This walk takes you from the bryce point side to the sunset view side which is about a half mile on a dirt path. Take your camera for an up close view of the hoodoos

This must rate as one of the most beautiful natural places in the world. Although we got caught in a thunder storm we were captivated by the beauty of the rock formations. Like fairyland.

We did a shuttle, leaving one car at the top and one at the bottom and hiked, I think, 11 miles. We ran low on water and had to ration. Be sure to bring lots of water. It gets hotter here than you think it will. It was cool when we started out, but got hot during the day. (it... More

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
