Worth Your Time!

The trail is picturesque as evidenced by the many images I captured up and down this trail. Everywhere you look there were the hoodoos and other natural land formations.

This is the least steep way to get in and out of the Bryce Canyon amphitheater and it is a marvelous hike. The trails weaves through clusters of remarkable hoodoos. We went in December and were glad we had our hiking poles.

We went on this hike with our 4-year-old. He hiked almost the whole way (I did have to carry a few times). It was a beautiful hike, but does have some exposure, so keep a close eye on your little ones. We went down this trail and back up Navajo Loop. It was great way to spend a day at... More

Even this early in the year, by mid afternoon the sun is so hot that you need to take plenty of water with you to avoid de-hydration. The variety, shape and size of the "hoodoos" are just amazing so make sure you have plenty of memory on your camera as you will not be able to stop taking photos.

We went just after sunrise. The path down is icy now and we just stayed on the rim above the path. If you walk down it you need good snow boots - in my opinion. It's slippery otherwise. However-----the photography shooting down into the Queen's Garden is fantastic if the weather cooperates. Sublime experience!

Bring your kids (not below 6), lot of water, jokes, picnic and spend an amazing day in Bryce Canyon. Do the trip this way because Bryce point is a little higher than Sunrise point, so you we'll have less to climb up at the end of the day!

We did this hike right after sunrise, and it was amazing. It's not difficult - the guide books called it the easiest hike below the rim. It's well worth the time - we did it in about an hour round trip.

I hiked Queens Garden Trail with my 10 and 8 year old and was impressed by the ease and views. This is an easy to moderate (on the way up) hike for our family. The trails are well marked and felt safe. I would recommend this hike for those who are looking to get down into the canyon.

Highly recommended to do this trail when you are in the area. Unbelievably beautiful formations! Was worried that it would be too hard to walk, but taking our time- it was awesome. Was always concerned about the footing- their were no loose rocks, etc... so always felt confident that where I stepped would not pose a slipping/falling problem. Do it!... More

This is one of the busiest trails in the park. Do not be discouraged, just be creative. Our family woke up early for sunrise...which was not easy with three teenagers, but it was worth it!!! There were lots of people crowded around the rim trail, but we walked down a little way. Then, we decided to make the full trip... More
