While the hike is technically comprised of two separate trails, most people choose to do a loop combining both trails, allowing for the best views and iconic experience.
Most people hike the Queen's Garden + Navajo Loop in a clockwise direction - this is also recommended by the park staff.
Doing the hike during spring, summer, or fall is best. Start earlier in the day to avoid crowds and heat. While hiking in the winter offers a unique experience, some parts of the trail may be closed.
Start the Queen's Garden + Navajo Loop hike at Sunrise Point. This is one of the best views in the park and one of the top things to do in Bryce Canyon.
From here, you will descend onto the floor of the Bryce Amphitheater. When you get to the bottom, you will come to a junction - continue onto the Navajo Loop fro here.
This portion of the trail requires a steep ascent through Wall Street - but here, you will see why this is considered one of the best Bryce Canyon hikes.
The hike ends at Sunset Point, another one of the park's best viewpoints and one of the best things to do in Bryce Canyon.
