A classic that shows off the best of Bryce.
Navajo Loop, Dixie National Forest, Duck Creek Village, UT 84762, USA
NileGuide Expert tip:
Go early in the day or in the evening to avoid crowds.
Another shortie that still reveals a lot of that amazing Bryce scenery, the Navajo Loop is great April through November; winter snows make it impassable. Start at Sunset Point and head down. At the bottom of the switchbacks, look for the two towering Douglas fir trees that have been stretching up toward the sun for over 750 years! Toward then end of this trail, peel your eyes for the hoodoo Twin Bridges as well as the descriptive Thor's Hammer. The Navajo Loop is popular; go early in the day or the evening if you want to avoid hordes of hikers.
