Queens Garden/Navajo Loop Combination Trail
When to Go: Year-round
Round-Trip: 3 Miles
Level: Moderately Easy Day Hike
This hike joins parts of two trails to descend the canyon and ogle the weirdest of weird Bryce geology—warrens of fantastic rococo hoodoos that shimmer in dozens of shades of red in early-morning light. The sandstone spires tower as you make your way back up through the Wall Street section of the Navajo Loop Trail and view the park’s postcard-icon formation, the top-heavy Thor’s Hammer.
Insider Tip: If the moon is full or nearly so, do the hike at night. No moon? Join stargazers at the visitors center for a tour of the stunningly clear night sky; telescopes are provided.
