This is the easiest entry for the hike but you will pay for it by exiting at the Navajo end which is a straight up series of switchbacks. Thankfully the ranger said to enter via Navajo and exit via Queens. A wonderful hike and highly recommended. For all ages.

Now, I am not a super hiker but I could see by the beginning of the trail and by what I read in the Park Newspaper that this was considered a moderate hike. I tried it and absolutely recommend it for a close and personal look at the famous hoodoos. I recommend walking late in the day, as there are... More

This relative short hike will have you stopping around every bend to check out the each new perspective as you ascend into the canyon. The trail is wide, but contains some gravel. Heed caution. There are many beautiful outlooks and interesting formation among the Hoodoo.This cannot be missed. We started at Sunrise point and walked down into the valley. The... More

This is a short trail just off the Navajo Loop and only goes as far as The Queens Garden. There is a particular hoodoo that when viewed from certain angles, looks like Queen Victoria. It's actually quite good. Remember that you can't walk this trail from the road. It's a mile or two along the Navajo Loop so you can... More

Take Queen's Garden Trail if you want to get experience of hiking down in the Bryce Canyon but is worried about energy. You can see rock statues and formations up close which you cannot see up from the rim.

Not surprisingly, this can get a little busy. Not too bad when we went though and it gets better after about a mile, when the car tourists, with no muscles in their legs to speak of, have given up. Try the connecting Peekaboo trail as well if you're up to a bit of hard work!

My husband & I (60 & 58) took this trail with our 2 adult sons (26 & 21). We are both in moderate condition, so this was a easy trail. We went from Sunrise Point down and back. We were there in mid-Aug so it was hot, so we opted not to continue further on the Navajo loop. The walk... More

We actually did the first half of Navajo Loop and then took the Queen's Garden back. Totally different environment in the middle there. Very pleasant.

I would recommend you start this trail at SunrisePoint this will allow you to do most of the trail downhill and the views through the hoodoos are amazing- you will have to go uphill with switch backs through the Navajo Trail up to Sunset Point. Take your time and bring lots of water.

the Hoodo's are watching you as they stand tall behind the trees. This is one of the trails at the bottom. There are places to sit for lunch and bring lots of water.
