    I am so happy I got a chance to go here!! The formation of the hoodoo rocks are so unique to Bryce.

    I had time for a short hike before heading to Zion in the evening. I did the Navajo Loop trail and it was an okay trail for the most part. What made it difficult was one the way down the switchbacks it was icy so you have to be absolutely careful and wear the proper footwear.

    I am so fortunate enough to have experience the snow on the rocks.

    This loop is definitely worth doing. The hoodoos are worth it. Went the first week of May and it was not that crazy with people. The Wall Street side of the Navajo Loop was closed, yet it was still a loop that is worth it.

    Inspiration Point is one of the outstanding observation points at Bryce Canyon. The views of the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater are absolutely amazing. There is a lower, middle and upper observation point and you should make the climb to all three. There is a parking lot here although you can also get here by using the very helpful shuttle system. An even better way to experience the scenery is to hike from Bryce Point to here and/or from here to Sunset Point. It is a relatively easy hike without much elevation change and you will have less people around you as you take in the amazing views.

    Amazing views of the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater and arguably the best view. It is here that you can see the very recognizable hoodoo Thor's Hammer. Sunset Point is also the start/end of the popular Navajo Loop Trail which includes Wall Street. Best experienced in the early morning for great photography and less crowds. The walk between Sunrise and Sunset Point is a paved trail and offers some of the most amazing views in the park. However, this area is also the busiest section of Bryce Canyon. The crowds made the experience much less enjoyable during the afternoon compared to when visiting in the early morning.

    This is the best hike at Bryce Canyon and also probably the most popular. The scenery is absolutely stunning. It is best experienced in the early morning shortly after sunrise for great photography and for much fewer crowds. It is best to combine with a descent on the Navajo Loop from Sunset Point and then to travel counterclockwise returning on the Queens Garden Trail to Sunrise Point. It is a much easier ascent on the Queens Garden Trail than the punishingly steep climb out on the Navajo Loop.

    Bryce Point is one of the outstanding viewpoints at Bryce Canyon. It is an excellent spot to watch sunrise as the hoodoos will be glowing in the early morning light. The photography was not as good late in the day when I visited. There is a parking lot located here but you can also reach Bryce Point by using the helpful shuttle system.

    This is an amazing hike especially when combined with the Queens Garden Trail and understandably one of the most popular in the park. The hike begins at stunning Sunset Point where you can see the recognizable hoodoo Thor's Hammer. It is a steep descent through numerous switchbacks until you reach Wall Street which is a slot canyon with towering walls on each side. To avoid the punishing hike back up it is best to continue on to the beautiful Queens Garden Trail that will bring you to Sunrise Point. You can easily complete the loop walking along the paved rim trail back to Sunset Point. I hiked in the late afternoon, which was great, but it was even better when I returned the next morning shortly after sunrise. Much less people and great photography.

    Sunrise Point offers amazing views of the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater. Sunrise Point is also the start/end of the Queens Garden Trail which is stunning. Best experienced in the early morning for great photography and less crowds. The area between Sunrise Point and Sunset Point is the busiest section of Bryce Canyon National Park as the trail is level and paved. The walk between Sunrise and Sunset Point offers some of the most amazing views in the park. However, the crowds made the experience much less enjoyable during the afternoon compared to when visiting in the early morning.

    This was an absolutely amazing trip. We went on the afternoon (half-day) Peek-A-Boo Trail ride. The company is so well organized and efficient at matching up horses and riders. The group of 22 was broken up into small groups of 7 or 8 with a guide. We had Quincy as our guide, who was really outstanding. He stopped at various points to tell us about Bryce and the viewpoints that we were seeing, answering any questions, and was able to elaborate due to his extensive knowledge. He had a fantastic personality and told a lot of jokes that added to the experience. It was scary going around the steep hairpin turns, but he assured us that we were safe and I had to trust in my horse! At the bottom of the canyon, there was a bathroom break with water for the riders and the horses, before remounting our horse for the ride back up. Being able to see the amazing Bryce Canyon from rim to bottom was an unforgettable experience!

    This was an outstanding hike. Moderately strenuous given the length of the trail and the climb out. This trail is much less trafficked than Wall Street and the Queens Garden Trail. You have a choice of 2 starting points including Fairyland Point or from the Rim Trail just north of Sunrise Point. The advantage of leaving from near Sunrise Point is that you can access this trailhead using the shuttle system, so you don't need to worry about finding a parking spot which are limited at Fairyland Point. I ended up starting at Fairyland Point just past sunrise so no issues with parking. Hiked counterclockwise along the rim trail in the early morning before descending into the canyon. Glad I did it as such as the rim trail would have added to the ascent at the end of the hike when you’re tired and the views are nothing compared to those deep in the canyon. The scenery especially after passing Tower Bridge is stunning. Not many out on the trail in the early morning which really added to the enjoyment of the hike. Fairyland is an appropriate name for this trail as it was truly magical.

    The Bryce Amphitheater at Bryce Canyon National Park is that central aspect of the canyon filled with hoodoos and other fascinating rock formations and can be viewed at several observation points between Bryce Point and Fairyland Point. The scenery is simply spectacular, and photos do not do it justice. All the observation points provide unique and amazing views although the best viewing is between Sunrise and Sunset Points. This is also the busiest section of the park. However, another great way to experience the Amphitheater is to hike along the Rim Trail starting at Bryce Point and making the gradual descent to Inspiration Point and continuing on to Sunset Point for incredible views. You will encounter much less people than at the observation points and the hike should take no more than 2 hours.

    Wall Street part of the Navajo Loop trail was so much fun and it's a must....my favorite trail of all times! Don't miss it if you are visiting Bryce Canyon! It looks harder than it really is, if you are in decent shape you should have no problem complete this awesome trail.
