pretty easy trip into the Garden. Great up close views of the Hoodoos and great to view from the canyon floor looking back up.

This is like the shortest, easiest hike down into one of the most beautiful places in Bryce Canyon, the Queen's Garden. It's an easy trail with only 320 ft. of elevation loss on the way down and nearly the same back up, but you have to climb more taking my route. I recommend going down just after sunrise so you...

We have hiked this out-and-back trail three times, once this May and the others with some snow on the ground. It's probably the easiest way to actually get down into the hoodoos. You see a variety of formations and end up seeing a rock formation that looks like Queen Victoria.

It was quite an amazing experience to be so close to the hodoos. I was repeatedly stunned and awed and kept stopping to take in the moment.

We started at Sunrise Point and did the Queen's Garden trail. This is a relatively short trail to walk (about 1.8 miles round trip) but with a drop of some 320+ feet and you have to climb back up! The scenery is spectacular as you descend into the Bryce Canyon, You need to remember you are high up in this... More

I wanted to do this hike so badly but I am petrified of heights. Started preparing myself beforehand. Even bought a pair of hiking shoes instead of my usual athletic shoes. My husband promised to help me. When we got to the trailhead I told him I couldn't do it. He assured me I could. He took the outside of... More

Spent 4 hours hiking the trail - wear hiking boots but well worth the hike. It is a walk going down into the canyon and naturally you have to return hiking UP out of the canyon - a good workout but so worth it.

It is a nice hike all down hill to the Queen's Garden. Once you reach there you will see a Hoodoo that looks like a statue of Queen Victoria. Pretty impressive. The walk down is filled with color and loaded with all different types of Hoodoo's. Just remember you have to hike back up. You are down 302 feet vertical.... More

When I take people into Bryce, I almost always ascend via this trail - I feel like it is the easiest ascent of all of them. Some may disagree, but I find that, particularly if I am bringing inexperienced hikers, the steady ascent of Queen's Garden is much easier for them than the swift, switchbacked ascents at Two Bridges or...

This was one my favourite hikes that we did. I recommend if you come into Bryce Canyon make time to do this walk and at a leisurely pace so you can take in the sights. It's gives you a varied view of the different environments within the canyon and it's great to get onto the canyon floor walk through the... More
