    Trails leading from the parking areas to the viewpoints are generally short, frequently paved and relatively easy. Most if not all are wheelchair accessible.

    Equipment: Sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, a snack, weather appropriate clothing, don't forget your camera!

    Winter hiking

    by goingsolo Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Bryce Canyon National Park

    Hiking in the snow takes a considerable amount of effort and balance. Some trails may close briefly after storms and some areas, such as Fairyland and Paria View are closed off to vehicles and reserved for skliiers and snowshoers. But popular trails such as the Rim Trail and Queen's Garden stay open year round, although snow may obscure the trail and make hiking difficult. The park service has snowshoes available, but will not rent them until there is more than a foot of snow on the ground. If you're planning to visit in the winter, its a good idea to bring your own or make arrangements to rent them elsewhere.

    Hiking - Not able to adequately describe in words!

    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 - Eroded rock pinnades called Hoodoos.

    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.

    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!

    Fairyland Canyon is open for cross country skiing during the winter. The Fairyland Trail is a popular snow ski trail during this time of year as well.
