This was my family’s favourite hike in Bryce Canyon. It’s a bit longer and more challenging than some of the other day hikes so it was not nearly as busy. This hike had stunning views the whole way.

We didn't actually walk the loop, but we drove down to see the point because you actually get a preview of Bryce before you enter the park.

This loop was nice but if you have to choose, I would hike the Peek-a-Boo loop as I found it prettier, more dramatic and more shade (both loops could be hot in the afternoon in June)

Fairyland Loop is an absolutely beautiful hike and you can make it a kid friendly, 3 mile hike, by stopping at Tower Bridge and turning back. Tower Bridge area has some great shady places to rest, have a snack or picnic before heading back to...More

Starting at sunrise and went anti clockwise, getting to the landscape where the "china wall" is, that view is just out of this world experience!

Make sure you have plenty of water/snacks for this 4-5 hour hike. You can start the hike from Fairyland Point (limited parking) or Sunset Point. We started at Sunset point and hiked counterclockwise. This worked out well and had beautiful views. If I were to...More

My friend and I hiked from from Sunrise point to Tower Bridge and back. We started about 8a and had a fantastic hike. We saw about 5 others in the whole two hours, so if you are looking for something less crowded, do this hike....More

Fantastic, georgeous hike in Bryce Canyon. Stunning surroundings and great long-distance views. Pace yourself...lots of water, rests along the way. Have done most of the other hikes in Bryce and this one was not nearly as crowded, which made it even more enjoyable.

We started this hike really early in the morning and it had snowed during the night, so all the hoodoos and the rock were partially covered with snow. The result was stunning. There weren't many people doing the hike that early and it really felt...More

There is a sign distinguishing the route to Tower Bridge from the last leg of the loop in the Canyon, but it is indeed easy to miss. ALWAYS HIKE WITH A MAP AND COMPASS, please. Two liters a day per person is the minimum to... More

Also, since there are no lights at night near the rim, there will be many places near the rim to see and photograph the Milky Way with no light interference.
