Must see · Hiking Trail · Nature / Park
Winding through a remarkable landscape of unique land formations, Navajo Loop Trail offers stunning views of Bryce Canyon and plenty of photo opportunities. Arguably the most popular hike within the national park, this short but steep trail takes visitors right past the towering hoodoos that are the area's trademark. If you wish to avoid the difficult uphill return, make your way back up by taking the longer but less steep Queen's Garden Trail.
