We loved this hike! Navajo Trail is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with some hoodoos. The scenery at Bryce never disappoints and there is something new around every turn. At times, the bizarre rocky environment can make you feel like you landed on another planet. So cool! The descent into the canyon is pretty steep with... More

This is a great loop trail. We did it after one of the lodges humongous dinners, and it was perfect. The views are spectacular. You might find one of the groups from a tour bus on this trail and that can cause some obsitlcles as they stop and start taking photos without considering what is going on around them. We... More

a good ending to the peek a boo but the switchbacks are tough. trouble is they go both ways. I would definitely take the south side down and come up the north side. it is easier.

Take your time here. It is a beautiful place to enter the canyon. It is somewhat strenuous but should not be a problem if you are in reasonable shape. It is not wheelchair accessible.

Did this hike and it was just right in length. Prepare to get very dusty. bring lots of water...Lots of steep switchbacks at the beginning and the end of the loop.

This is a moderate hike with steep downgrades, We were lucky that the wall street section opened up 2 days before our hike. Watch out for falling rocks as we saw a few during our hike. Carry plenty of fluids. A nice hat and sunscreen is a must !! For photography, if hiking in early morning go clockwise, later in... More

A fab walk, a little strenuous but nothing too bad. It starts off with a steep 'Lombard Street' style group of switchbacks. Fine as long as you're wearing the correct footwear - a man in front of us slipped, but he was wearing flip flops! Combine it with the queens garden trail -about 2.8 miles in total back to sunset...

We all loved this hike. It was one of the highlights of our vacation. Actually being able to hike through the hoodoos is an experience. We started hiking to the left of the loop. It was steep going down, but happy I did not have to come back up that way. Towards the end you come to the switchbacks which... More

My wife and I went clockwise on this loop trail. The decent is steep. My toenails were ramming the front of my shoe. The views are wonderful. The ascent is tiring with many switchbacks. This is a popular hike. It is well worth going into the canyon.

If the "moderate" level of difficulty for these loops are intimidating you, you can according to your capacity go down these loops and climb back up the same distance. You will not regret the effort. The trails are wide and well maintained.
