    Trails which wind down below the rim through the rock formation include:

    - Fairyland Loop ( 12,8 km round trip);
    - Peekaboo Loop ( 10,9 km round trip);
    - Queen's Garden ( 2,9 km round trip);
    - Navajo Loop ( 2,4 km round trip).

    Keep in mind that all trails below the rim involve steep climbs out of the canyon. Wear hiking boots with good traction and ankle support. Brink plenty of water. Know and respect your own physical limitations!

    Bryce Canyon has an easy scenic drive to great lookouts, but the best way to appreciate Bryce Canyon is to walk over the hiking trails down into the amphitheatres and among the Hoodoos - the name given to the eroded rock pinnades and spires that fill the park.

    Hiking - Not able to adequately describe in words!

    Looking down the depth of Bryce Canyon.
    1 more image

    Bryce Canyon National Park contains a spectacurarly beautiful series of amphitheatres filled with colourful, eroded rock forms. It can not be adequately described in words and is only somewhat better represented with photos. It's a place where you can spend hours at any number of overlooks staring in wonder. You will undoubtedly find after a visit that you've taken many more pictures than you had thought, in an attempt to capture it's brilliance.

    Bryce Canyon has an easy scenic drive to great lookouts.

    Hiking

    Bryce Canyon National Park

    Bryce Canyon is one of the most accessible national parks. There are plenty of hiking trails which are short and relatively easy and can be found right off the main road. That's one of the things that makes this park so great for the casual or limited time visitor. There's no need to search for a trailhead or drive down a 4X4 road to get to see the sights.

    Of course, there are bigger and better rewards for those who take the time and effort to explore Bryce in depth. But for those who can't spare the time or find the inclination, Bryce's short trails are a great way to see the park. Two of the most popular trails are Queens Garden and Navajo Loop. Both are short, not too steep and incredibly scenic.

    Biking in Red Canyon

    Red Canyon

    (ok, I did not do this, as there was no bikes available when I was there - however, I just discovered the possibility when adding Red Canyon in general).

    Red Canyon, just some miles before entering Bryce Canyon offers nice roads for bike tours.
    So, it would mean (MT)B'ing off the beaten track.
    Camp grounds are available, according to the website below

    Equipment: bike and tent, if you want to stay overnight.

    This is for your information only, as I have not taken one of these trips. Canyon Trail Rides offer 2-hour to half-day horseback trips into the canyon daily April through October. You may register for these at the park lodge. The address to write to for information is Canyon Trail Rides, P.O. Box 128, Tropic, UT 84776.
