A moderate hike

I took my time, saw three colorful birds. Not strenuous, so enjoy. Do earlier to miss the crowds. The temperature was just delightful for a 2 hour hike

It was strenuous but well worth the effort to say that you did it! I think that one is better off going in clockwise direction instead of what we did but nonetheless a very doable trail if you pace yourself. Would not have missed it.

Navajo is Hot! Take water and take your time. This trail can be more difficult than the park guides suggest.... especially in hot weather, the actual trail isn't overly difficult... the heat and altitude may be more difficult than the actual terrain of the trail. It is beautiful and offers variety of trails that spring out of Navaho loop which... More

The Navajo Trail is an awesome way to experience the Hoodoos at Bryce. You can hike the short loop or combine it with the Queen's Garden Trail for a 2.5 hour hike - make sure to check out the Queen's Garden on the route! Start early in the AM to avoid the crowds and to enjoy some shade. The best... More

If taken slow, the Navajo trail offers one a nice stroll down into the canyon and amongst the amazing rock formations that are the hoodoos. is about a 3 mile round trip from sunset to sunrise point or vice versa. It is about a 5-600 feet decline and then incline up out of the canyon but is worth the effort... More

The recommended direction is counter clockwise - that's a good idea! Hiking down from the starting point to the bottom of the canyon is stunning! This should be one of your must do hikes in Bryce Canyon! Just don't forget...what goes down must come up...the hike back to the top is steep steep steep! Take your time, take your water... More

It looks very steep but it's not as bad as you might think. And walking through the hoodoo is great!

This looks daunting at first, but is a great, fairly quick hike. Don't go in sandals or flip flops! There are a lot of drop offs on the edges so you for your personal safety, bring some stable shoes for this trek. Enjoy!

Lots of tourists at the trail head and about 300 yards into the Canyon, then somewhat less. if you continue towards the Queens gardens, it will remain quite a populated place. If you choose the Peekaboo Trail, things will calm down. NOTHING if you hiked the Grand canyon, but if not, be aware: we saw some people really struggling on... More

Part of the Queens Garden and one that most people can make. Does not mean that it is not incredibly beautiful though!
