Hiking Bryce Canyon's Rim Trail

Rim Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Nick Oman

Distance: 11miles roundtrip (you can shorten it with easy entry points). Spectacular views. Easy, flat hike. Family friendly.

This popular hike in Bryce Canyon National Park offers up breathtaking views from just about every step. While it can be as long as 11 miles out and back from Fairyland Point to Bryce Point, multiple pull outs allow driving between the different points providing as long or short as a hike as you want.

I prefer to start at Sunrise Point for the shear amazement, which this hike's view provides right from the start. Sunset Point follows shortly after with a panorama of the park that is unforgettable. From here, head to Inspiration Point and finish at Bryce Point for a beautiful look back at the hoodoos of the park. Once you've taken it all in, head back the way you came.

Great Views

Just like the Rim Trail at the Grand Canyon, you can't find a bad view along the rim. Recommend hiking into the Canyon to get up close and personal with the Hoodoos

Great view of the amphitheatre

A great way to start or end any hike into the Bryce amphitheatre. Connects to a few different shuttle stops and campgrounds, which makes it a useful trail. View is great. To really experience Bryce, though, hike down and immerse yourself in the landscape below.

Connect this to under-the-rim trail for a long day hike or run to see most of the park on foot.
