  • The entire Fairyland Loop is a little over 8 miles. The trail was 1/3 snow and 2/3 mud on the day in January we hiked this trail. The mud made it a bit more difficult, but it was a great hike.  more »
  • This was one of the best hikes I have ever done. Gives you the full range of what makes Bryce amazing. If you go clockwise you start with great views along the rim. You then drop down into the canyon ...  more »
  • Slightly off the beaten track, so less frequented, and with great views towards the amphitheatre, a wonderful trail.  more »

  • Stunning loop. And you can hike the whole 8 miles without paying the entrance fee. Takes under 4 hours (add time for lunch and photos).
  • Started at the trailhead just outside the park entry gate at 7:50am. The views were spectacular from the beginning. Although long and steep in sections, we were able to complete in just under 4 hours with multiple stops for photos. Would highly recommend.
  • Amazing trail! If you have one trail to do in Bryce, I would recommend this one. It is not very challenging but so beautiful. You can take about 3,5-4 hours to hike the full loop.
  • Psychedelic hike, specially in the evening and at nighttime! Be ready to walk on the moon and Mars, as well as spot ancient kingdoms and rock creatures !
  • Incredible views as you hike around the rim trail down into the canyon and then back out. It's a very intimate hike around Boat Mesa, that looms over you most of the day. It's a strenuous hike at about 8 miles, but very doable, and a must if you visit Bryce.
