Take in stunning views and explore amazing natural land formations on this beautiful, easy hike.

Hoodoos? What's that you say?

Hoodoos are these amazing rock formations that Bryce Canyon is famous for. This hike is hands down the best way to see the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. This hike allows for stunning lookout points from the rim and the experience of hiking through the hoodoos of the canyon.

We did the hike in fall just before a some snowfall, which in my opinion made the hike even more memorable.

Look for the Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden Trail. You can begin this hike at either end. You can start from Sunset Point by the famous Wall Street, or, like us, start at Queen's Garden Trail by Sunrise Point, which descends down some switchbacks connecting to the Navajo Loop.

There is parking near Sunrise Point. Head toward Sunrise Point, and just before you will see Queen's Garden Trail. Follow down this trail which will surround you by hoodoos and take you under little tunnels which open up into spectacular views.

This trail eventually leads to the Navajo Trail, which takes you up to Sunset Point. The end of the hike ends with the majestic Wall Street. Wall Street contains a series of slow winding switchbacks that takes you to a more narrow path in which you are enclosed by a bright red rock wall on each side. We were the only ones hiking Wall Street. It was amazing.

If you have seen the music video Alive by Empire of the Sun, this is where it was filmed. (:

*Side note: During heavy rain or snow the park tries to close off the wall, but even so the hike is very safe.

Such a Cool Landscape

The hoodoo's in Bryce canyon are so cool to see. The bright red colors against the blue sky makes for some really nice photos

Its a Bryce Canyon Classic

Don't miss this one. Its an easy walk and safe/fun for the whole family. Start early for some amazing morning light on the orange rock (you won't be alone), its truly breathtaking.


Beautiful part of the park; not to be missed! So many gorgeous formations and the colors are outstanding!

My favorite hike in Bryce

This hike should not be missed and can be enjoyed by just about everyone. The light at different parts of the day make for amazing photos out of even the most amateur photographer. A can’t miss in Bryce.


Really, this is one of the world's iconic hikes and should not be missed if you are anywhere near Bryce. The light, the light, the light.

Must See

Bryce is one of the most underrated parks! It’s amazing to be able to walk down into the hoodoos and see nature’s creation. We did the Navajo trail and the peekaboo trail (combined it’s about 5 miles)

As beautiful as it is bizarre

Erosion-etched sandstone pinnacles, towering old pine trees, arches and gullies and above all, the bright orange hue of the stone. What a landscape. If you hike into the amphitheatre anywhere, make sure you hike through Wall Street—best experienced on your way back up.

Not So Dog Friendly Hike

This is a great hike with beautiful views, but dogs are actually only allowed above the rim.

Great narrow canyon!

Wall street is a great place for photos and a fun area to explore. The canyon is pretty wide for a slot canyon but it is so easy to get to. The descent and ascent can be very steep though.

This is my favorite hike in the park and a great way to escape the crowds at the rim.
