Amongst Hoodoos

The Queen's Garden Trail off of the Navajo Loops Trail is one of the endless possibilities for trail combinations in Bryce Canyons National Park and is approximately 3 miles of switchbacks weaving through world-famous hoodoos and archways. For the first part of the hike you will start on the Navajo trail, which begins at Sunset Point as you head straight down switchbacks to what is called "Wall Street". The trail is clear and well maintained (and you probably won't find yourself alone..). Once you're at the bottom of the canyon you'll find that you have many trail options including some "off-trail" pathways to towering hoodoos. It really all depends on how much time and energy you have. I took the Queen's Garden trail (which made the hike a loop) because of how amazing I heard it was. This trail will take you through pretty much all tghere is to see, from hoodoos to archways to narrows. The ends at Sunrise Point and the parking lot there connects to the one at sunset point where you start.
