If you can only spend one day in Bryce Canyon and you want to do a full day hike then this is the trail for you. The loop trail is about 8 miles long and gives you amazing views of hoodoos and rock formations throughout....More

Absolutely loved this hike. We drove to Fairyland Point, saw very few people on the trail the whole hike, it was so peaceful, beautiful and scenic. Not a lot of shade, but we'd set off earlyish to beat the heat. As we came up to...More

Outside of the main park, this area was sufficiently patrolled by rangers. Easy access for the various picturesque views.

This is a challenging trail, over our skill level, but we were able to do just a couple of miles in the evening for incredible views.

This 8 mile hike is the best the park has to offer in my opinion. Only serious hikers are found here and i t starts outside the park so it is more remote. I would use hiking boots and poles and bring a camelback. You...More

One of the longer trails, but that means you'll see a lot less people. Some spectacular formations on this trail, including view of Sinking Ship, Boat Mesa from many different angles and Tower Bridge. Bring plenty of water and start as early as possible.

Bring plenty of water if you do this hike in the summer months, as it is an uphill-downhill hike and the canyon heats up nicely once the sun comes up. Our favorite hike in Bryce, as you see so many colors, formations and even deer...More

We spent a day and night in Bryce and feel that this Loop took us to all the things we wanted to see. It was lovely. And we saw, maybe, 10 people the entire time. It's one of the longer trails but totally worth it.

we did both the "Navajo Loop to Peek-a-boo" trail (my favorite) and the "Fairyland Loop". The Navajo Lp starts out a bit steep but, then is up and down. Fairyland is less steep but more exposed (so you'd have to be careful... More

There is a sign distinguishing the route to Tower Bridge from the last leg of the loop in the Canyon, but it is indeed easy to miss. ALWAYS HIKE WITH A MAP AND COMPASS, please. Two liters a day per person is the minimum to... More

I personally loved the "Peek-a-boo" trail better than Fairyland Lp if you only choose to do one hike. Absolutely stunning. Do bring lots of water.
