Natural Wonder

Our Take

This park is filled with hoodoos, which are tall, spire-like rock formations made of striking red stone. A highlight for many is seeing the sunrise over the canyon... provided the weather cooperates. There is a trail that travels along the top rim of the canyon for an easier trek, but you can also do extensive hiking inside the canyon as well. In addition to the sunrises, Bryce Canyon is also known for its stargazing, as there aren’t any major cities near this remote National Park.

“simply "hoodoo-iferous"!”

Hoodoos (irregular columns of rock) exist on every continent, but here is the largest concentration found anywhere on Earth. Situated along a high plateau at the top of the Grand Staircase, the park's high elevations include numerous life communities, fantastic dark skies, and geological wonders that defy description.

The Queens Garden/Navajo loop hike has been called one of the world’s greatest 3 mile hikes. The pictures do not do it justice! The north part of the camp can be reserved 2 days in advance, but if you’re looking for first come first served camping, visit the south part instead.

There’s no way you can visit Bryce without staying 2 or 3 days though, the sunrises are seriously some of the most beautiful in the country.

VERY nice park - do the rim trail for a great easy hike with super views. Ride the bus and save time and effort. A must do when making the loop around Utah - make sure to catch Zion and the north rim of Grand Canyon if you get this far south.

Bryce is so beautiful! We did the Queens Garden/Navajo loop with our family including our 10, 13, 15, and 17 year olds. Saw some family doing it with their walking two year olds..not sure that was a good idea. Very steep going down and back up. Beautiful and well worth it! We took the trail counter-clockwise (opposite of what the trail guide recommends) and we really liked that route. We think the route up was easier that way.

Bryce Canyon is on the short list as one of my favorite all-time National Parks. The canyon is out-of-this-world cool, and the hiking leads to some of the most amazing views I've ever seen. As Dana said, be sure and do the Queens Garden/Navajo loop hike. You won't regret it, and you'll come away with some awesome photos and memories.

Great park to visit with kids. The hoodoos and sites are amazing.
Do the Mule/ Horse Ride . We were first times and enjoyed the ride. The best way to see the park in summer since it takes you to sections that are too long to hike with kids. Do the Navajo loop its fun. Our kids are 12 and 10, and they loved it. Go for a ranger led Star Gazing program if they have one.
Meals: Two options. The restaurant at the lodge which is very good and a Pizza/ Coffee shop.

Absolutely breathtaking. If you're going to be in the area, don't miss Bryce Canyon. Incredibly unique and beautiful scenery. The Queen's Garden/Navajo Trail loop provides some amazing views and is a an easy to moderate hike.

If you have to decide between this park and others, chose this one!! So beautiful and amazing! If you come early enough you can get in for free. And it's worth getting up early for the sunrise.

Great place to visit! This area is set up to where you could stay all week and enjoy the Canyon, good food and other things to do in the area. I went with a group of ladies but want to take my teens kids now! Hint: They try to limit vehicles IN the park so it's cheaper to take the shuttle bus in. That staff was friendly and helpful, would highly recommend doing that again!
