Before going on this hike, we stopped at the visitor's centre for a half-hour geology talk given by one of the park rangers -- very interesting and informative. Then we drove to Sunset Point and hiked partway down the Navajo trail. This is a fairly sheltered trail (i.e., not nearly as windy as, say, the trail down from Bryce Point,... More

This simple loop hike (well, it is a bit steep at the end) offers magnificent views of the canyon, with endless photo opportunities. If you only have a limited time to visit Bryce Canyon, this is the hike you should take. The silence, the deep blue sky , and the red hoodoos make for an unforgettable experience.

For anyone seriously wishing to undertake a classic hike in Bryce, this should be on your list. It's steep switchbacks offer stunning views up close of these sandstone marvels, and they provide a satisfying challenge that comes from hiking such terrain at elevation.

Yes it's steep, yes it's dusty, (unless it's rained and muddy) yes it's crowded, but it's part of the magical Bryce Canyon National Park and it's great! One of the smaller parks, you can enjoy quite a bit from the rim without too much effort, and at 8K feet steep trails do require some effort. But if you're able, do... More

It was incredible to be among the hoodoos and the beautiful red rock! Truly magical. We did this in late September, so while there were plenty of people on the trail, it wasn't insanely crowded. The trail is tight enough in some places (and has some dropoffs here and there) that it would be a lot less enjoyable with major... More

We took the Navajo Loop Trail clockwise. It was a gradual descent down on a dirt path. It was fairly smooth, but boots or gym shoes would be best. It goes past small double bridges. The contrast between the dark green evergreen trees and the red rocks with the blue sky was so wonderful. There were friendly travelers and people... More

Beautiful little hike but it can get crowded as it is one of the more popular hikes in the park. Worth the effort.

Once you are in the hoodoos your view is limited to trail in front of you and all the people on it, talking, kicking up dust and generally not appreciating the amazingness of where they are. Too bad, because it could be spiritual experience if you could do it alone. Seems like it's a place they drop tour bus people... More
