Peekaboo loop was the best part of the figure 8 trail we did (Queens Garden to Peekaboo Loop to Wall Street)! We started the trail at 11a from sunrise point (more parking, there was none at sunset point). We went left at the trailhead (starting our descent, not the rim trail). The descent into Queens Garden was super crowded and a little difficult to navigate the families and kids. Would have been best to start earlier. Queens Garden was cool, but Peekaboo loop was the best part of the figure 8 trail! It was pretty difficult and often felt like we were constantly going uphill and the heat was getting to us. There were 2-3 really amazing viewpoints. We ended going back up to sunset point through “Wall Street” which was a terrible series of switchbacks which felt like forever in the blistering heat. Do the “hike the hoodoos” challenge and take a selfie with 3 benchmark signs with the gold coin, go to the visitors center and get a little prize! Overall, fairyland loop is less crowded, more beautiful and just as difficult (it’s longer but they both took the same amount of time). If you want a quicker hoke, Peekaboo Loop is the 2nd best hike in Bryce!!

One of the best trails to see the formations, but it comes at the price of steep trails up and down and can be an extra problem in the heat of the summer. Plan ahead if you are hiking the trail. Great photo opportunities along the way. If you are not sure you can hike it, look into the 3 hour horseback ride through the canyon and Peek-a-boo loop. You will sacrifice some on the photo shooting, but it is less strenuous.

We did a combination of the peek a boo, the navajo trail and queens garden (about 11km, with 500m elevation gain). We started at sunrise point and went down then did the peek a boo loop (i recomend going clockwise) and then went up the navajo trail to sunset point.
If you are able to do it then do this. Like that you walked almosted the whole park. And the view is just awesome. The trail goes up and down and up and down but take your time and enjoy the view!

Yes, do this trail! Start either at Sunset on the Navajo Loop or at Bryce Point. Once down in the canyon, the trail network will be a system of ups and downs. If you direct yourself toward the formations beneath Inspiration Point first, you'll be sure not to miss the Wall of Windows formation.
The actual loop is about 3 miles; not bad. Remember, though, to factor in the distance it took you to get down into the canyon. And, of course, you have to get back up. And along the trail you'll pass through some short tunnels which open up into astounding landscape views. Marvelous photo ops here. And near the Navajo Loop linkup is a makeshift picnic area. Also the horse trail passes through here. The trail can be very busy as can the parking areas along the rim. Sunset Point and the adjoining Lodge area has more parking options than Bryce Point. But if you use the shuttle option, you'll have no worries.

Absolutely stunning scenery. Really you cannot miss this hike! It is quite ‘up and down’ and tiring, so you need a reasonable fitness level and proper walking shoes, but trust me that it is so worth it! Don’t just do the Queen’s trail - this is so much more magnificent. (Note you can join Peek a Boo from Queen’s and see both - takes about 3 hours with stops). An absolute must. Loved it!

The loop itself is 3 miles with up and downs. We went from Queen to Navajo to Peek a Boo to Bryce for a total of 5.6 miles and 1234 feet of elevation gain.

The loop hike is great there is some midday shade in spots and it is leads traveled which is nice if you are looking for a 4 mile hike then access it from Bryce point

We enjoyed many hikes at Bryce Canyon National Park. One particular highlight was hiking from Bryce Point down the Hat Shop Trail. There were many interesting and unique views along the way down into the canyon. However, at the bottom of the canyon you encounter the Peek-A-Boo Loop trail. This trail is a 3 mile loop that is relatively flat. We started to hike the trail, but quickly found that it is littered with large amounts of horse droppings. That made it rather unpleasant for hiking. If you are riding a horse, this might be a fun trail to take. Otherwise, stick to the other trails in the park.

This is the way to experience Bryce. It was sour first time at Bryce & the shuttle driver recommend peek-a-boo.. we were sure happy we got that recommendation. Hiking into the canyon is an unreal experience in itelf, and this loop winds on and through the hoodoos. It was just spectacular. The hike out of the canyon is strenuous, but very do-able.

Beautiful hike, but fairly strenuous, lots of ups and downs on the hike and then big elevation climb to get out. Went Sept 26 and it was still plenty hot. Bring lots of water and some snacks. Parking will be a challenge at bryce point , unless you go early or later in afternoon

Beautiful hike with a lot of scenic views, can be steep up and down and a bit strenuous. Add plenty of time to stop and take photographs along the way.
There are some steep spots that those afraid of heights will be a little bit nervous but it's doable.
