At the end of a long day in Bryce Canyon NP, we weren't sure we wanted to take the time to visit yet another canyon to see more hoodoos... but it was worth the time and (very little) effort. This canyon view is as breathtaking...More

This was a beautiful trail. Recommend to do it as early as possible since it takes about 4-5 hours, you don’t want to get stuck at the end going all uphill past noon. Recommend to take LOTS of water with you as well. Sunscreen and...More

My husband and I did the loop 20+ years ago and it was our favorite piece of a three week national parks trip, so we were excited to be able to take our teen boys to do it. We did the whole loop again, starting...More

Just unbelievable sights...hoo-doos, rock formations, colors, just do not miss it! Bryce Canyon has so much to see! It was definitely one of the top places we visited in Utah.

We hiked part of the loop starting at the Fairyland Trail/View parking lot. Hiked for about 30-45 minutes before turning back and as we descended the views provided a different photography experience as we were now shooting across at the rocks/features instead of shooting down...More

This was my family’s favourite hike in Bryce Canyon. It’s a bit longer and more challenging than some of the other day hikes so it was not nearly as busy. This hike had stunning views the whole way.

We didn't actually walk the loop, but we drove down to see the point because you actually get a preview of Bryce before you enter the park.

This loop was nice but if you have to choose, I would hike the Peek-a-Boo loop as I found it prettier, more dramatic and more shade (both loops could be hot in the afternoon in June)

Fairyland Loop is an absolutely beautiful hike and you can make it a kid friendly, 3 mile hike, by stopping at Tower Bridge and turning back. Tower Bridge area has some great shady places to rest, have a snack or picnic before heading back to...More

Starting at sunrise and went anti clockwise, getting to the landscape where the "china wall" is, that view is just out of this world experience!

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

Also, since there are no lights at night near the rim, there will be many places near the rim to see and photograph the Milky Way with no light interference.
