Takes about 2 - 2 1/2 hours round trip with viewing stops. If going during Summer, go early by 8:00 before it gets hot. relatively easy but you can still get a bit winded on the way back up. Bring plenty of water. This is the easiest hike into the canyon - easier than Navajo trail/loop.

Excellent views of the hoodoos from close up. You just can't see everything from the top of the trails. Explore into the canyon and see them close up. There is a rock cairn park that is quite interesting at the canyon floor.

We did most of this hike with our 8 and 10 yr old kids. We couldn't do the entire round trip because of an incoming storm. The views are spectacular all the way down. It is quite steep coming up, but can be accomplished with frequent rest breaks.

Hiking the Queen's Garden Trail is a must when you visit Bryce. Best is to do the Navajo-Queen's Garden Loop (about 3 miles), starting on the Navajo Trail from Sunset point early in the AM to enjoy the cool shade and to avoid the hords who arrive later in the morning.

I did a little research to find out which hikes at Bryce Canyon would be adequate for families and younger children (my children are 14, 9, and 6) and discovered that this was probably the best hike in order to get into the canyon. The hike down was easy and the hoodoos and scenery was amazing. The destination of Queens... More

Beautiful and inspiring! Well worth the effort of a great hike. It is great for kids too. There are times when it was quite strenuous, but most of it is a beautiful walk among thousands of incredible hoodoos.

The trail is easy to navigate, and the view of the towering queen (a great big tall cliff) is well worth it. Like most of Bryce Canyon, there are no bad views or uninteresting sights.

A steep trail but worthwhile. We linked it to include the Navajo Trail which is almost 3 miles in length. It was good starting at the Queen's Garden Trail going clockwise. The climb out of the Canyon is via a slot canyon with many switchback paths. Well worth the effort.
