  • Naturally, you're visiting Bryce Canyon with the intention of finding the best trails to hike, right? This was a tough list to narrow down. But we managed to list some of the top Bryce Canyon hikes to do, ranging from quickies to longer ones that really reveal the unique views of this national park. Navajo Loop is perhaps Bryce's most popular hike, and it deserves that status. Taking you through some of the most breathtaking scenery of the Bryce amphitheater, this loop trail will push you a bit. Slow down, look around, and enjoy it. If you're here at the right time, also immediately sign up for one of the famous Full Moon Hikes. Very popular and, obviously, only offered a handful of times a year, this guided nighttime adventure will be one you'll long remember. Fairyland Loop, Peekaboo Loop, Rim Trail, and Riggs Spring Loop are slightly longer hikes, at around 5 miles each. Somewhat less traveled due to their length, this means they are often less crowded, yet they offer no less stupendous views, which helped them into the Top 10 hikes. Some of our favorite shorter ones like Hat Shop and Queens Garden are both so whimsically named and visually intriguing that we just had to include them. Red Canyon made the cut because even though it's not in Bryce Canyon proper, being 9 miles down the highway, it's like a mini Bryce with its hoodoo spires, sandstone pinnacles, and excellent trails. Red Canyon is a more secret spot that's gaining in popularity for very good reason.
