Classic Bryce views are even better on this hike because it's less crowded

NileGuide Expert tip:
September and October are the best months to hike. Snow-covered in the winter.
The Fairyland Loop takes hikers through striking natural rock formations; don't forget your camera! The trail begins at Fairyland Point, winds through the Bryce Amphitheatre and returns near Sunrise Point. It loses 950 feet in elevation--then gains it. You'll get a workout! Penny-pincher? This trail head starts before the fee station in the Park, so you can experience all of its beauty for free.
