Owner description: 2.9-mile hiking trail that leads to rock formations shaped like Queen Victoria and her garden.
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

A must do trail if you are physically able to. It’s about 3 miles round trip and our 7 year old was able to make it pretty easily. We started at Sunrise Point and went clockwise around the loop. Go early in the day to avoid crowds. In spring dress warm and go at sunrise and have the trail almost to yourself. It is amazingly quiet and there is a ton of wildlife in the canyon. The view from below the rim is breathtaking and is so much better than just looking from the overlooks up top.

This is a lovely trail. You can’t get bored with all the different hoodoos around. The walk gives you a real chance to get up close to see the hoodoos.

The beauty & scenic views on this trail can not be missed. Must see views from the best maintained trails in the canyon. Wide white gravel trail, narrow in a few spots as you descend from the top of the canyon to the bottom in less than a mile. Switchback section is long, winding & beautiful! Take the Queens trail down & catch the Navajo trail back up to starting point. Plan to take your time for its a trail you will remember for a life time!

We had originally wanted to hike the Navajo Loop, but Wall Street (half of hte trail) was closed so the park staff suggested that we take the Queen's Garden Loop and come up along the Navajoo Loop side that was open. We began the Queen's Garden Loop by Sunrise Point overlook. It is a gradual decent and beautiful views. There was something spectacular around every corner. The kids (18 and 12 yrs old) loved the hike. It was our favorite.

I asked the park staff which end would have the steepest incline. They suggested that we start over by Sunrise Point and go up the short but very steep incline along the Navajo Loop side near Sunset Point. It would have been a long gradual incline (most of the hike) if we had started at Navajo Loop (near sunset point) and ended at Sunrise Point. I have bad knees and going down is easier on my knees than going up. Warning, it is a very steep climb but if you pace yourself and have plenty of water left it really isn't bad. If we had started on the Navajo Loop it would have been a very long gradual incline and much harder on my knees. We stopped for a picnic lunch at the canyon base amongst the trees just before we started our climb back up.

This is a great 2.5 mile hike where you get to weave your way through the hoodoos that make Bryce Canyon NP so special. You get to see some of the famous rock formations of Bryce, too, such as Thor's Hammer and Wall Street (if it is open). It's popular and therefore, it is very crowded with people. The beginning and the end of the trail is very steep despite having multiple switchbacks to make it "easier." Make sure you're decent shoes, bring plenty of water and a camera to take pictures of all the amazing beauty.
