Must Do Things in
Bryce Canyon, Utah

During your visit to Bryce Canyon there are many adventures to fill your time and impress lasting memories. Most will make their first stop the visitor center. While there be sure to watch the 22-minute award-winning film about Bryce and find the times for the ranger programs you are interested in attending. You will also want to get information on the voluntary shuttle system. The astronomy viewing, talks and night programs are special at Bryce so be sure to put at least one on your agenda.  When it's time to leave the visitor center, drive toward the rim to Bryce Point.  From here get out and walk along the rim.  The easy trail traverses the edge of spectacular scenery all the way from from Bryce Point to Fairyland Point. 

Trails and Ranger Talks in Bryce

This place is magical, one of rich color, crisp clean air and some of natures oddest rock creations. Bryce Canyon National Park is a treasure located in the unpopulated Southwest desert.  Taking a walk with a ranger or just sitting and listening to a free ranger program can be some of the most enjoyable moments you will spend in the park.  Learn about geology, history, the animals, the plants, the folklore and much more.

Navajo Loop Trail - 1.3 mile round trip
The Navajo Loop Trail quickly descends via delightful switchbacks before the descent to the canyon floor. You will hike through the narrow walls of Wall Street and if you are lucky enough to hike it when the sun is above, the lighting between the narrow rock walls is enchanting. Look for the towering Douglas Firs reaching for sunlight in the dim light of Wall Street. When you come to a spur, follow the sign to the Queens Garden Trail.

Queens Garden Trail - 1.6 mile round trip
Take the Navajo Loop Trail and join with the Queens Garden Trail to make it more enjoyable.  Don't miss the short spur that goes down to the formation knows as Queen Victoria.

Grand Staircase Backway 

Skutumpah Road travels through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument connecting Bryce Canyon and East Zion. If you are up to some great fun and do not mind driving on a narrow graded dirt road then head for the Staircase. This road is not suitable for winter travel even on warm days, due to snow melting. Be prepared. There are no services and the road may be impassable if wet. Drive east to Cannonville, turning south in town near the the Grand Staircase Visitor Center. Trails along the way include Willis Creek and Lick Wash. The dirt road will end at the small town of Glendale on the east side of Zion National Park.
Note: Always check weather conditions before travel on backways.
