It is an 8 mile loop that includes some elevation changes. The trail is very well maintained, there are other hikers but you never feel crowded. You will have as much solitude as you want. There is no way to not enjoy the beauty of Bryce Canyon. This trail has a wide variety of formations and vistas. It is still... More

We went the first weekend in April (Still cold and that day we hiked was Very cold). However, we did the opposite everyone suggested going down first because the wind and cold. I will say I would recommend going the opposite direction so you don't have the steep hill climb at the end BUT it is doable. Most amazing views... More

This trail won't disappoint. We enjoyed all the ups and downs (there are many) as we wandered through the hoodoos.

A new WOW around every corner. This is a fairly moderate 8.2mile journey through a multitude of varied magical landscapes. Plan on making it a full day. We left from the Fairyland loop trail-head and did the loop in around 6 hours. Words can't describe the breath taking views.

We did not hike all the way to Fairyland Loop, we went only to Tower Bridge and back. Beware, in the summer it's hot !!! So hydrate again and again, and note there is not much shade along the way. On the way to Tower Bridge, the trail goes down , and down, and down. There is an interesting view... More

My fiance and I stopped here on our way to a friend's house but didn't have enough time to explore or actually go hiking, we just took in the view from above. One day we'll come back and check it out fully. Cool thing about this area is that you don't have to pay to get into it like you... More

This is a several mile or longer hike. Views are amazing. Be prepared with boots or good shoes. There are steep drops and path is not always stable. There are warnings, so heed them. Classic hike and views.

I started this hike at dawn. The sun was just coming up on "Fantasyland". I did this popular but tough loop in clockwise direction. You start on the Canyon rim and traverse down into the Canyon floor. In the process you are treated to the magic rock formations of Bryce Canyon. The hike is a little over 8 miles long... More
