One of the most amazing and breath taking rock formations I have seen so far. Hard to call it an ambitious hike since it is catered to tourists of various age and ability, but considering hour to hour weather changes and snow showers happening even in July it maybe a challenge at any time of the year after all. It is equally amazing looking at it from the top of the ridge as it is mesmerizing when you look at the HooDoos from the bottom of the canyon. With a clear blue sky the contrast between the trees, orange rocks and the blue sky is breath taking.
Wall Street was closed at the time when we hiked this trail, but we have heard it is worth it.

Holy Moly, Bryce Canyon is an incredible area. The shear beauty AND cliffs. The vistas following the rim are stunning. THEN we took The Queen's Garden Trail…Amazing is all I can say. Photos can't capture the blue of the sky, the different shades of red, the height of the Hoodoos or the depth of the canyon. You just have to go to believe!

I liked this trail, I only walked part of it due to time! Its great if you want to see the hoodoos and it loops into other trails! Making it easy if you want a long or short hike!

Classic hike into Bryce Canyon, worth the visit and effort. The Queen's Garden is excellent with a wonderful likeness of Queen Victoria. Can't wait to get back to Bryce.

My favorite hoodoo hike. Beautiful forms that take the shape of your imagination. We connected this route to the end of the Navajo Loop trail.

A nice hike which gives a good view of the HooDoos and gives one a better idea of the park. Coming out is steep. Have hike it about 10 times.

My husband and I did the Sunrise-Sunset hike. It was incredible steep and it took us some time to get back up. It was a gorgeous hike with plenty of photo opportunities. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a snack and take your time.

I only did the ascending portion of this trail, since we connected up with it after descending on the Navajo Loop. Great views of hoodoos from above and below. The Queen Victoria rock was neat and just a short spur off the main trail to see it. There are some great opportunities for panoramic shots and unique viewpoints that you don't see when standing at the rim. Connect it with the Navajo Loop for a great view of the best of Bryce. The climb is somewhat steep, but easier than some of the other trails. Take your time to catch your breath and just soak in the beauty that surrounds you. This trail gets pretty crowded, so go early.
