Bryce Canyon Area Hiking
Day Hikes in Bryce Amphitheater:
The easiest trail is the 1/2-mile (one way) section of Rim Trail between Sunset and Sunrise Points. Other sections of the Rim Trail (which extends 5.5 miles between Fairyland and Bryce Points) have steeper terrain.
The Under-the-Rim Trail extends 23 miles from Bryce Point to Rainbow Point and has eight backcountry campsites. The Riggs Spring Loop Trail (8.8 miles round trip) from Yovimpa Point has four backcountry sites. Both trails drop below the rim of the plateau and lead through forested areas. A backcountry permit is required for all overnight hiking. Permits are available at the Visitor Center for $5.
Trails which wind down below the rim through the rock formations include:
Fairyland Loop (8 miles round trip)
Peekaboo Loop (4.8 or 6.8 miles round trip)
Queen's Garden (1.8 miles round trip)
Navajo Loop (1.5 miles round trip)
The Peekaboo Loop Trail also serves as a horse trail.
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. Drink plenty of water. Know and respect your own physical limitations.
