The absolute highlight I have driven on each of my West tours. It is a "Morning park", because of the lighting conditions. One could also in the "Canyon" (that is not one) descend and have a good time. My Autumn Travel it was too warm during the spring travel too much snow and I was down there the wrong shoes on. The many Viewpoints above are readily available and allow truly breathtaking views. Especially in the spring with as much snow. The steel-blue sky, the white snow and the reddish glowing rock. Oh. Man! In the spring it can be damn cold here. A thermo overall is good. Unfortunately, the rear part of the park was closed during several trips. Front-on but pushed snow. A highlight of any trip, an absolute MUST-GO. My favorite NP. THANK YOU. Time required: half a day - like summarized with Zion.
Who enjoys only the view from the rim (Rim), may perhaps be a little disappointed that this "Canyon" but - appears quite clear - in the truest sense of the word. Enthusiasm sets in, when the first steps on the "Queens Garden Trail", which merges into the "Navajo Loop Trail," has gone. Grand views of the surrounding rock formations. The view often sweeps skyward over the ubiquitous flow of tourists away. Tip for planning: because the perpendicular midday sun can tour the best advantage or afternoon the stone columns not really illuminate. Loop Trail and walk along the Rim are done in half a day without baiting.
Definitely worth a visit. Impressive rock formations and colors games expect here (especially in the morning and evening hours). We walked the Fairyland Loop and have about 5 hours needed. While this requires some stamina, but because it often goes up and down and you but it must overcome some vertical meters will be for a relatively little way past path rewarded brings one closer to the full splendor and variety of Bryce Canyon. Important: plenty of water to take (on the trail, there is no refilling) and pay attention to sun protection, then here is great days not handicapped.
One of the most beautiful and special places I have ever visited! I visited this amazing national park for the second time in July this year. It was so great to be back again! I love to photograph so this is one of the most impressive places I have ever visited. My wife and I stayed here for two days so we got both the sunrise – and sunset view. I think that the sunrise is the most impressive form the sunrise point (see some of my attached photos and you will understand why!) My wife and I took the combination of the Navajo Loop with the Queens Garden Trail looping from Sunset to Sunrise points. What a breath taking trail! If you can spend 2-3 hours for a hike here I will highly recommend this trail. Start early in the morning (7-8 AM) when there is not too busy and the temperature (at summer time) is OK. (I recommend starting at Sunset Point because the slop up to Sunrise Point is more gradual and therefore easier). Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.
My absolute favorite among the national parks - more impressive than the Grand Canyon or Canyonlands. Perfectly developed, well attended, but usually not crowded. Good shuttle service. The more distant vantage points and trail heads can also be easily reached by car, the parking spaces there are rarely full. There the view at different times of very worthwhile to enjoy, since the colors during the day changes.
Simply amazing view, for hardcore hikers sure to aanreding to do, though it is also feasible for younger children and those with poorer conditoe to do. I myself walked this route for honors on my 13th with my 10 year old brother and my parents, so too difficult, it is not. The route I took was when dusk-dawn and went through both the overhead portion and the valley, I found it prachrig.
This National Park is oftentimes dwarfed in comparison to the Grand Canyon. Having been to both, I would say such comparison is somewhat poorly placed. Not to diminish the Grand Canyon at all. That place is hugely impressive, but the Bryce Canyon is much different in its appearance which renders the initially stated comparison alike pears and apples. The Bryce Canyon offers a wide variety of stunning and beautiful scenary, colors, and formation. I found that the Bryce Canyon was able to impress throughout an entire days visit with new types of scenrary, vegetation, and color-combinations at different sites. Moreover, you are able to walk closely amongst the formations enabling a very in-touch experience with the canyon. I absolutely adored this national park!

Amazing, what more can I say? The fact that this place exists and is accessible to the public is a gift. And I was proposed to here! So my husband to be remembers being here as a boy and walking down the classic zigzag walkway that goes down into the canyon. He was able to find old film of him running down as a child and I was able to get iPhone video of him doing it as an adult. Priceless and what is amazing and wonderful is that the scenery has not changed over those 30+ years. So, people have been respectful of the environment, which is great because when you descend into the canyon, you know you are walking in a holy space.
The most beautiful national park visited in the States. There are several routes, with varying levels of difficulty, which lead to the valley passing between these fantastic rock structures. Do not do only 2 pictures and go away but were at least a day because the park from its best walking.
Awesome place with jaw dropping views..the hikes through the hoodos are beautiful..be sure to carry hiking poles and water and wear hiking shoes for the hikes as they can get strenuous. The night views of the stars are breathtaking. The Ranger led programs are awesome and informative. Got a chance to attend the astronomy program, which is an hour of presentation after which we saw planets, galaxies and few stars through the telescope (thanks to Rangers Ben Ben, Jee Jee & Todd ). The information of ranger led programs are available at the visitor center, be sure not to miss them if u have time..overall an awesome place to visit!

We rode on horses and mules through the Bryce Canyon, awesome. The views, the colors, the experience, .. sensational. Afterwards we visited the viewing platforms ... it was absolutely no comparison. You have to walk in the Canyon between the Hoodoos, or better still ride;).
The shuttle takes a at most Viewpoint and is free. Very impressive scenery. My recommendation for travel with several NPs: the Annual Pass (the beautiful American) get on the very first Park. Valid for one year for all NPs and National Recreation Areas. (80 dollars)
Very beautiful Park with lots of surreal rock formations all along the trail. However, if you plan on only doing the trails at or around the amphitheater (Fairyland Trail, Navajo Trail, Queens Garden, Peekaboo Trail, ...) then they all tend to blend into each other. The landscape and views of each are fascinating but very similar. Did not stop me from enjoying them though. Another plus are the public showers behind the general store near the park entrance. They cost two gold coins which you can buy in the general store for 2$. Mostly they were in good condition and relatively clean.
beautiful canyon with its hoodoos, these improbable stone towers. full of tourists on the main roads, just a few minutes walk on the hiking trails to be sure. Breakfast if you come with his bike: there are plenty of bike paths very well appointed!
Just beautiful, you must see once! Every time you ran a piece on the rim again looks different. Make sure you have previously next to the folder also newspaper / the Newspaper, there are also all the walks, parking lots, shuttle buses clearly.

Bryce is a beautiful national park definitely worth seeing at least once in your life. Came here during my babymoon, and very grateful for the shuttle service. We were dropped off at Inspiration point and walked down to Sunset point which is a 1.5 mile hike along the canyon rim trail, with breathtaking views of the hoodoo the entire way. Must wear sturdy, closed toed shoes since there is a sheer drop. Mostly downhill from Inspiration to Sunset and totally doable even at 7 months pregnant. Definitely checked off my bucket list, and recommended!
Breyce Canyon National Park is special. One can only marvel at what nature has done since. The park has many spectacular trails, even with the horse (organized) it can be explored. Should be visited in any case, an unforgettable experience
Stayed at the North Campground. RV sites were mixed, some great ones, others not. We appreciated that there was a sink with warm water for cleaning dishes. The bathrooms were clean and well lit. Flushing toilets. The showers were a little less to be desired. Small cramped. Dark. $3 for 8 minutes. General store has some essentials and souvenirs. Prices were average. There are some other stores and campgrounds outside the park. A few restaurants too. The park was clean and the roads and parking lots were well kept. Great experience.
I came to this park March 2015, we drove from Springfield Missouri. We went through Page on our way up to our hotel in Utah. To be honest, after I saw Lake Powell I thought nothing else on this trip would compare to what I saw. Well That next day Bryce Canyon National Park proved me wrong. Out of every place I have been since I started traveling no where compares to Bryce Canyon National Park. The hoodoos are crazy weird, the colors are gorgeous and combining it all together it shows me mother nature is the best artist of all
Let all the other parks stay if you do not have time .. this is the top .. in the first place I put the Bryce .. 14 different points to admire this impetuous canyon .. worth the visit absolutely !! Managed and maintained very well! Thanks to nature
Obviously a must see park. 3 stars for poor utilities at the low season. As far as I can tell the National Parks try to throw money out at any cost. The subbed out concessions always are junk and overpriced we had planned on the laundry facilities for are travels and they are long term out of service. We also needed the advertised RV dump station. Closed for season, even though temperatures have been above freezing for some time. Also closed museum and theater. Lots of people here but not enough to care I guess.
To make absolutely. The steps can be very quick or longer. the car stops can even make to take the picture in picture. In winter with snow must absolutely predict spikes (for sale in all sports shops in the sector)
There are quite a few nice hikes around Bryce Canyon and you can get several different experiences. Walking around the rim you get incredible great views of the hoodoos which are the standing pillars of crumbling rock. If you walk down into the canyon itself you can walk around the base of the hoodoos which is nice because you get to be in the shade more than around the rim. The only problem with the lower trails is that there is heavy horse/donkey use so there is quite a bit of manure along the trails.
Containing several hikes of varying length and difficulty, Bryce Canyon National Park is an accessible destination and one of the TOP must-see places on earth! From the red rock formations called "hoodoos" to the gentle sandy paths and look-out points, Bryce is captivating. The park includes a family-friendly "I Hiked the Hoodoos" benchmark challenge for hikers to find and create collectable gold seal rubbings on trail "benchmarks" as evidence to turn in for a visitor center reward. Fun for all-ages!
Probably one of the most spectacular places in the world. Drivers can head up the spine of the park via the road up to Rainbow Point at nearly 2800m with phenomenal views. Along the way are lots of stopping off points to view the hoodoos, the magnificent rock formation growing vertically out of the landscape. The park offers a range of trails to visitors that get you right into the landscape and are well worth doing. Get up early in the morning to see the sun rise and light up the hoodoos.
Really very special landscape, recommendations can be placed in the national park one day. The first to open in the end portion, and then back to one view, the last point of departure to go walking at sunset walks around 2.9 miles through Queens Garden Trail. Walk about two hours away, great. And return in the afternoon to go have relatively no sun.

Utah - Bryce Canyon Bryce Canyon is a natural park, the park only has hundreds "column chimneys" were formed by geological erosion. The rock formations of red, orange and white creates spectacular scenery for visitors.
Who does not visit this park, is your own fault. A dream. And if you leave a bit the tourist-corners and uses the trails, then nervous no Selfi Spear knips end tourists. But but the park can nix. Really nice...
A beautiful park, since its colors, I suggest you do the sunset. Until that time you can take a hike between ocher fireplaces. The path is well marked, but beware, it goes up and down hard!
