“Best hike in Bryce Canyon”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

This trail (going clockwise) was beautiful even in December and was well laid out and easy to follow. The views were amazing. The last half mile or so is very steep but doable and well worth it. We are not seasoned hikers but this 3 mile loop was amazing!

“Wonderful Hike”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

While visiting Bryce Canyon we decided to hike the Navajo/Queens Garden Trail. Going down into the valley from Sunset Point we did the Navajo Trail, counter clockwise. The descent down was moderate and the views outstanding. Hiking across Queens Garden allowed you to see life on the canyon floor. We hiked back to the rim on Sunrise Trail, and it was a .5 walk back to our starting point. We are not experienced hikers, but did not find this hike difficult at all. The weather was cool, we had plenty of water, and we allowed plenty of time. We saw so much more hiking than just looking from the many scenic overlooks.

“A wonderful hike at sunrise!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We entered the Queens Garden Trail at sunrise. The scenery is spectacular at sunrise! Any of the trails inside Bryce will have a steep descent and a steep climb at the end since you begin and end at the ridge. Queens Garden is not bad and once you are down in the Hoodoos it is peaceful, quiet, and great scenery at every turn! Bryce is one of the most beautiful parks you can visit in Southern Utah.

“Great Hike....Don't miss it!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The hike is spectacular, it meanders down through the hoodoos to the amphitheater fall and then back up. through more spectacular scenery.

This hike is very family friendly and qualifies for the "Hike The Hoodoos" pin from the National Park Service Ranger Station.

If you can only do 1 hike in the park, this is the one to do.

“Well worth the wheezing ...”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Can't give an excellent as am neither fit nor slight and found the lack of oxygen at altitude a bit of a trial, but that isn't the Trail's fault.
It was fantastic and would go again right now if didn't live in the UK!
