Truly a fabulous experience. You are driving into the park and voila - over the edge is like a magical box that has been opened. It isn't like riding through Zion (which I LOVED), but you have to ride up, get out and view. Pictures do not do justice. This is great for a bucket list!

No other words to describe it but it's an amazing experience to hike down in to the Canyon and walk among the hoo doos. Our favorite hikes are the Navajo trail, Wall street (great views here!), Queen's garden and Tower Bridge. We prefer going clockwise from Sunrise point - easier coming up Sunset point (fewer switchbacks). The rim trail is... More

We arrived to Bryce via the free shuttle from Ruby's Inn. (We previously purchased a National Park Pass for $80, so the fee entrance fee was included-Don't forget your pass!). We stopped at the visitors center to ask about 'easy' hikes. The ranger suggested the Rim Trail from Bryce Point. We accidentally started walking the 'Under the Rim' trail and... More

Bryce Canyon is an amazing place to visit. The views are amazing, and unlike anything most have ever seen before. We traveled to each scenic point in the park, each providing unique perspectives of such a majestic place. A must see!!

After having gone to Zion NP without checking out Bryce Canyon NP, we finally stopped at Bryce this summer and we weren't disappointed. The scenery is just as visually stunning as Zion. We drove to the end of the road and worked our way back (since almost all the stops are on your right traveling back to the visitor center.... More

Please see this and also ZION, one is walking down the other is up. Such beautiful views, people from around the world, this is a place like no other. However the park rangers could use some Zoloft, not really friendly or helpful.

Bryce Canyon is a place that needs to be on your list of places to visit. It may have cliff and canyons like other places, but the formations are so beautiful. The visitor center offers ample information. Go on a trail ride and really get up close to all of the rocks and Hoodoos. Elevation of 8000 ft plus, the... More

I came expecting to see pretty rocks, but was overwhelmed by the beauty of the rock formations. The hoodoos, the amazing colors, the canyons all lead to a not to be missed sight. It is 8000+ feet above sea level, so don't forget that an easy walk down in a canyon can lead to a very difficult walk up.

What a jewel! So beautiful! However, Hikes in this park can be quite slippery on slopes due yo lose rocks over dusty slopes. This park is also pretty high in altitude, so people tend to get affected physically by high altitude should keep this in mind.

This rated as one of our favorite parks during our two-week road trip making the grand circle. It was not as crowded as the other parks and had spectacular views at every turn. The southern end of the park looked like an entirely different park from the northern end. We hiked two trails and my sons both earned their "I... More
