Wonderful walk that does take a bit of stamina on the way back up. Bring decent shoes as the weather can change rapidly and the ground can get slippery.

This is the best hiking trail I have ever been on. Amazing views of the park but most of all it was fun, exciting and unique. It was so different than anything I have ever seen. The switchbacks down and up were somewhat challenging but it is kid friendly. Just make sure they stay away from the edge. We walked... More

This takes about two hours and we all enjoyed it. We took a lot of great pictured. Spectacular colors. Bring some water. It takes about 2 hours to go down and then back up.

One of the most amazing hikes to do. So peaceful and beautiful at the bottom of the Canyon. Beauty and breathtaking views all around you. The hike up the Navajo Trail was a great workout for sure. Crossed an awesome adventure off our bucket list.

We have been visiting all the national parks for years and have never hiked a better trail! A must-hike for anyone going to Bryce! The trail begins with a series of somewhat steep switchbacks down into a narrow canyon. There are great views the whole way down and a ton of shade once you get down into the amphitheater. The...

One of the beautiful trails to hike on. Love the red sandstone but will not stay beautiful if the kids play on it or write their names all over.

This is a short loop trail (about 1.3 miles, total) that descends from Sunset point to the bottom of the canyon and back up again (about 500 feet). The trail itself is fairly steep with a lot of switchbacks, both on the way down and the way back up. Our kids (ages 8-16) managed just fine, though. The trail includes... More

Wow. Steep, but well managed trail. At the bottom of the loop you can add the Peekaboo trail loop for a truly stunning hike. The latter is not nearly as crowded and well worth the extra effort.

The trail is very easy going down and very scenic, but it is very hard to get back up. When the time is right and the sun hits the rock, you can see the many different layers very clearly and that is the perfect time to take photos.
