Awesome. Must see. You can see Thor's hammer from the visitors overlook but it is much better to walk down the trail a short way and see it from closer and without looking down on it.

It's a very well known view yet it's quite astonishing. I definitely recommend to visit there if you're at Bryce Canyon.

You can't go to Bryce without finding Thor's Hammer! Even though there are millions of hoodoos, Thor's Hammer stands out among them all.

There are many hoodoos that you can enjoy in Bryce Canyon, but Thor's Hammer is somehow special because it is so easily accessible and is alone, so stands out very much from the landscape.

Thor's Hammer is an easy hoodoo to get close to. It is just below the canyon's rim at Sunset Point on the Navajo Trail.

Very interesting formation. It stands out on its own surrounded by other hoodoos. It is a good 'end' to the Navajo trail en route to sunset point. If short on time, go down from sunset point to view it. Nice photo op
