This loop is a bit tiring, we chose to go first down and then up and i think it was a good choice. There is no water/toilet on the loop so think about it before doing loop :)

This is the #1 trail in Bryce for a reason - this is the hike that enables you to see the most/best of the wonders that Bryce has to offer the lucky visitor - Hoodoos, Thors Hammer and more incredible rock formations and crazy trees with twisted trunks and charred looking branches.
By early November the Bryce Shuttle bus had stopped running but most people come here in their own transport anyway. We easily parked in the Sunset Point parking lot at 10am on a Saturday in early November, there were many spaces. I recommend starting this hike at Sunset Point and finishing at Sunrise Point. The reason for this is that the initial descent down into the Canyon on the Navajo loop is fairly/moderately steep with some switchbacks but you don't notice it as you are fresh and you're still too stunned by the scenery to notice the drop in elevation. I must note there are two different routes down into the Canyon on the Navajo loop, because it is a loop obviously!
Then you pick up the Queens Garden trail which leads you gradually up to Sunrise point. This route ends in a more gently sloping ascent than it would be to go the opposite direction and start at Sunrise Point and finish by walking up the Navajo loop which is more steep.
Overall it takes around 2 hours to get from 'Sunset' to 'Sunrise' points but take your time and take it all in!
The elevation here is between 8200 and 8600 feet but you really don't notice any lack of oxygen at all, in the cold Fall anyway, unless you happen to be very sensitive to altitude.
We also had time after this hike to drive ten minutes South down the scenic route to visit the Natural Bridge before heading out via a quick stop at Ruby's Inn for some souvenirs and coffee, and the gas station across the road to top up our gas tank before heading back to Springdale/Zion, and still had time to do the Canyon Overlook hike there before dark. It was a great day! Enjoy everyone!

We loved this trail! Beautiful views of the hoodoos and just a great hike. Our daughters (11 and 13) loved this hike, but I would not recommend it for children younger than 4... unless you're ready to carry them up Wall Street. Wall Street is quite a hike up, so be prepared! Start on the sunny Queens Garden, then come up shady Navajo. Bryce is such a beautiful place... so thankful to have spent time enjoying its beauty!

We hiked down the Navajo Trail and returned up the Queens Garden Trail. This made a great loop and certainly an easier way than hiking up the Navajo Trail. Took us about 2 hours with lots of photo stops.

It was magical - probably took us twice as long as it should have as we kept stopping and staring at all of the hoodoos and stunning colors. It's like being on a different planet - the pinks, reds, whites, coral colors, the driftwood, the hoodoos. Not a difficult hike but may take some time on the steep areas - you have to go down into and up out of the canyon afterall. Just take your time and you can do it!!! A must do!!!!
