Part of the trail was closed in December so it wasn't a loop. It was still amazing with snow capped hoodos and trees. Because you descend into the canyon you can get excellent photos from interesting angles with beams of light shining through. The walk up can be a bit tiring, but makes you nice and warm in the winter.

This is the trail that takes you down to the canyon floor. In my opinion it is better to desend from the sunset point through the Navaho trail, connect with Queens garden trail and ascend to the sunrise point.

This was a great trail during Spring Break in March. No snow on the trail like some of far trails. Start at Sunset Point and go to the Queens Garden. The Wall street portion is closed. You can also come out at Sunset Point or back out the way you came.

This is what hiking at Bryce is all about. If you only do one hike this is it. Doesn't seem to matter which direction you start from but take into account where the sun is shining so that it is to your back.

Like no place on earth. And this is not to take away from other places I describe that way also like Yellowstone. This is a relatively short trail that will get your heart pumping and open up your senses walking beneath a towering, wonderfully shaped landscape of indescribable beauty. It is at least 5 km and included descending and climbing... More

Two 40 somethings and 2 teens did this hike in the morning. We had wanted to do the Navajo hike but Wall Strret was closed so we extended it and joined the Queens Garden Loop. We started at the Sunset point which I would highly recommend as it will make it easier on you at the end when you finish... More

This place is just, it is hard to describe, knowing millions of years have had to pass, changing winds, harsh weathers and unbearable sunshine to create such beauty!

this is the main trail to do at bryce that gives you the best bang for your buck. We started (and parked) at sunset point, and walk .5 miles to sunrise point, where we desceded into the canyon via queens garden trail. At the bottom, there are multiple routes you can take. You can immediately go back up via navajo... More

We did this hike with our kids and it was great. It was fun to see the different plants and terrain at the bottom and fun to hike both up and down the canyon - do watch the kids though, there are minimal guard rails in some parts of the ascent and descent!

I've taken this hike many times alone and with family ages 8-50 and it never ceases to amaze! Make sure to pack lots of water & some snacks. Not a very long hike if you don't follow Navajo Loop, but you'll stop for pics around every turn! Also be ready to pace yourself on the way back up it's harder... More
