The access to trail inside the park needs a car and a map; it is near the Sunset Point and the lodge. The trail descends into a huge amphitheater. The views are breathtaking, otherworldly. A special attention must be kept regarding of the falling rocks. A part from the trail was closed due to this reason (Wallstreet portion). It was... More

Great for a moderate hike, some steep trails but lots of amazing views. Bring water & be prepared for weather changes. This was the best part of our trip & allows you to see things the way that the first settlers would have seen them from below.

It's a loop trail from Sunset Point. A number of people told us to take the left fork down. The trail isn't that hard, lots of switch backs. Take your time and enjoy the changes of rock formations down to the valley. The colors, the sky and the hoodoos are what it's all about. Enjoy!

For a fairly short investment of time (we actually took the Navajo Trail and connected to return on the Queens Garden Trail) you can see a beautiful section of the Bryce Canyon - it is a tough hike back up, remember to bring plenty of water, and leave early to avoid the heat of the day. Absolutely beautiful place.

The trail is packed dirt switch-backs. The trail is around 1.5 miles, moderate difficulty, and provides a wonderfully different perspective of Bryce Canyon from down in the canyon. Many nice photo opportunities. Wear good tennis shoes or hiking shoes, we were wearing motorcycle boots which were not the best for hiking, but made it okay on the trail.

Totally agreed with other reviewers to go down Navajo and up Queen's Garden. Otherwise, it's a steep walk up Navajo to Sunset. Don't know why NPS recommended the other way. This is a beautiful hike with lots of scenic points and rock formations. It took us about 3 hours but we were going at a leisurely pace. Make sure to... More

We were there on a cold day in mid April. It was snowing when arrived and left but nature gave us a break in between so we hiked a short way down the trail. I would guess maybe 1/4 to 1/3. It is steep with drop offs but it does not appear as bad as Grand Canyon. Even in a... More

We have combined navajo Loop Trail with Queen's Garden Trail, starting with Navajo Loop, so we went down first. Wall street part was not open, so even the book tells you to go clokwise, it's easier to go down then come up Queen's Garden Trail.
