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

Compared to some magnificient formations, I felt this was a kind of O.K. place. This is a little away from the main park,

Wow! I didn't think anything could surpass our previous day's hike through the Peekaboo-Navajo-Queens Garden trails, but Fairyland was even better. What I liked about it, is its vast, sweeping views and openness. It sounds hokey but you really feel like you're in a fairy tale world surrounded by whimsical hoodoos, golden walls, giant castles, and all sorts of other... More

It is relatively easy, except in winter when they close the road for the season in December. The parking lot always has spots at Fairyland, and do the circle loop trail from the rim to the visitor's center back thru the Fairyland loop return. It takes about 2 hours and is one of the best hikes in the State of... More

Another amazing view of Bryce Canyon, definitely looks like a Fairy tale village. The formations look like castles!

We were on this loop on our way to China Wall and Tower Bridge. This was our warm up hike after 7 hours in the car and was the perfect introduction to Bryce.

This trail is phenomenal! You run into amazing and curiously looking hoodoos around every corner. While not as "intimate" as some of the other more popular trails in the park, this is a real treat because you see amazing hoodoos and see vast sweeping views everywhere. I have traveled to national parks all over America, and this trail is in... More

It's easy to miss the turn-off for Fairyland Point, coming right outside the park entrance kiosks, but look for it, because I think Fairyland Point is just as beautiful as the Amphitheater. A short drive off the main road will bring you to Fairyland Point. There's not a lot of parking here, and there were many more cars parked here... More
