Winding through a remarkable landscape of unique land formations, Navajo Loop Trail offers stunning views of Bryce Canyon and plenty of photo opportunities. Arguably the most popular hike within the national park, this short but steep trail takes visitors right past the towering hoodoos that are the area's trademark. If you wish to avoid the difficult uphill return, make your way back up by taking the longer but less steep Queen's Garden Trail.

  • Amazing climb back up to the rim. It is very popular so early starts are recommended. Very steep and in the sun.  more »
  • The views are fabulous, but not an easy walk for the faint at heart. Very steep and slippery in some places. Walk the entire loop for a total con trust in sides.  more »
