“Beautiful Hike for any age”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We visited Bryce National Park in clear weather and found it lacking in "rim ride" interest for the most part. Too many tour busses and most scenery was out of view from roadway. We stopped at the visitor center and watched the movie,searched out suggested trails, programs and walks of interest. The star gazer programs are a must. We also opted to take the Navajo/Queens Garden Loop trail with a suggested time of 2-3 hours. Being over 65 I would like to make a suggestion for fellow golden hikers. Take this hike. DO NOT wear sandals or silly shoes. Be sure your shoes have grip as you are walking down slickrock with some loose gravel. CARRY WATER and drink it even if you are not thirsty. Start at Navajo on the Wall Street decent. It is spectacular. The walk is slow paced and grand. Watch for rocks to sit on or the benches slipped in along the trail.
Take a break and enjoy the beauty. Going up Queens Garden is and should be slow with plenty of breaks to enjoy the scenery. If you do it this way the strain ohn your knees and heart will be less. Remember the elevation is offering 70% LESS oxygen than you are used to having walking around. This is a MUST hike for all levels. Nothing to be afraid of so Enjoy.

“Amazing Hike”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We hiked down through Queens Garden and up through Wall Street. I would rather go up the steep parts than slide down them, so this was the way to go for us. Well worth doing this hike. At the cross roads sign by Navajo Loop, be sure to take the Wall Street way up for the neat hike through the slot canyons. We later hiked down the other side of the trail around Thor's Hammer to the two bridges. Also provides beautiful views, but a good climb back up. If you only have time for one way up take Wall Street. It is really neat. Do the whole loop, don't leave out Queen's Garden! It is amazing.

“Excellent trail!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

If your time and/or energy level is limited, this hike is perfect. It provides an excellent view of the heart of Bryce Canyon without being so long that it wears you out. It's listed as the park's most popular trail for a reason.

“amazing; paradise”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This place was spectacular, be sure to turn onto "wall street" to get down inside the crevices. Unbelievable. Easy to navigate. no0 major hiking skills required. The views will make you want to take pictures of everything. check out youtube for some great videos of the park. Can't wait to go back!! One tip - not very many bathrooms so go when you have the opportunity.
