Brought two grand children here to see the rock formations. They are truly breath taking. Bring plenty of water, especially in the summer, and bring your camera to take lot of fantastic pictures. The children enjoyed short hikes to see the vistas!

Bryce is unlike any other park, so should not be missed. Like others, we highly recommend doing the Queens Garden trail starting at Sunrise Point, and then joining up with the Navajo Loop trail exiting at Sunset Point. You can then either take the shuttle between the points, or just walk--it's short and pretty. Make sure to take plenty of water, and just take your time, because the altitude and heat can definitely get to you. But it's doable by most people in reasonable health. The views from the various points along the drive are worth seeing, but there's nothing like actually walking down into the canyon. They have free shuttle buses and we recommend using them because the traffic is insane and you can't find places to park. They may need to do like Zion and require the shuttle buses.

Unlike Zion National Park, you can drive the 18 miles of Bryce Canyon. We planned for one and a half days at Bryce. The first afternoon we drove in and went to the visitors center where we got our maps and started to make our plan. The park ranger we spoke to suggested that the next day we shuttle in as parking can be crazy between 9 and 4.

The Map, shuttle & hiking guide was perfect!!! We used page 4... I hiked the hoodoos program. It was just myself and my 8 year old son. Our first late afternoon we decided to drive out the 18 miles and stop and overlooks and shuttle in the next day. The canyon is on the left side as you drive in, so it's best to go to end and work your way back.

In all...
Day one we hiked:
Bristlecone loop at 1 mile.

At Bryce Point we walked down to the left away from all the tourists and sat on the rocks to meditate and admire the glorious view. It was stunningly breathtaking. And surprisingly quite. This was late afternoon and perfect.

Day two we shuttled in. Parking at the entrance was easy and not crowded. We got there just around 930 am.
Sunset to sunrise (.5 mile) continuing on to Queens garden (.9 miles) down to Navajo loop (.8 miles) and went up the Thor's Hammer side (.6 miles)

We drove out to get to mossy cave a .8 mile trek. Easy and both disappointing and worth it. The cave itself isn't all that magnificent perhaps in the winter it is. However, there is a sweet little waterfall that waits for you!!!

Bring plenty of water, some snacks and a long sleeve. It got chilly as the sun was going down. We also keep bandanas in our packs for sweat, bugs, and runny noses. Remember to leave no trace.

We visited the park yesterday. We did the Queens Garden and Navajo Loop hike. We absolutely loved the scenery. We did the Grand Canyon the day before and didn't think we would be impressed by BC. We were impressed. It was so different and smaller but just as impressive.

Hoodoos. Like day-glo orange, fairy princess, sand-castles! With a variety of rim-paths, moderate and strenuous hiking trails, Bryce is a good choice regardless of fitness level.

While we did not stay in the Park, the Lodge, cabins and amenities appear to be well-appointed and if you're not a walker/hiker, you can relax in comfort in a scenic setting

The park offers many programs for children and adults. We attended the astronomy and geology talks which were very well done - presented by Park Interpreters either on the rim or at the Lodge, they are certainly targeted for children, but entertaining and informative even for adults.
