It's the most popular hike in the park - and the many travelers stand proof of that. However, I'd recommend heading down Sunrise Point to the Queen's Garden at the outset of the venture - makes the climb up Navajo a bit easier. Be sure...More

If you’re limited on time and want to experience maximum hoodoos, this loop is for you. Descend from with sunrise or sunset point and you’ll come up at the other. Plenty to see during the hike, expect it to be slightly busy.

Don't let the crowds at the rim fool you, once you make it past the switchbacks leading down into the Canyon you can feel at times as though you are all alone. Wonderful ground-level views of formations and hoodoos and a cooler, less windy climate...More

Unofrtunatly the weather wasn't great when we did it and visibility was down quite a bit. Even so we enojed the rock formations and hike but with good weather it must be really beatiful.

Queens Garden Loop is rated as the easiest hike, it maybe if you don’t have bursitis in both hips but I still made it. We actually went down the trail at Thors Hammer and made the loop back up to Queens Garden. I have a...More

Can’t stress this enough: go early because it gets hot and crowded in the middle of the day. We started at 8 am. Start at Sunset Point to go down a pretty brutal looking switchback. You still have to hike back out of the canyon...More

We came in from the Sunset Trail side/Navajo Loop. Trails are well done and easy to navigate. Very pretty views.

You get a completely different viewpoint by hiking into the canyon. Definitely worthwhile. We did the Queens Garden Navajo loop trail. The Wall Street Section hadn't opened yet. Very nice trail. Not too difficult. Definitely worthwhile.

This is a fairly short hike and can be strenuous in spots if you're in just average shape. We started on the Navajo trail which takes a number of switch-backs to get down into the canyon before connecting with Queens Garden trail. We met a...More

Hi! Start from Sunset Point, if you come the other way you'll get the steepest part going upwards. You will need water and some snacks and there are nice places to sit down for a while. You will find that you stop in many... More

Hi Dominique - the Fairyland loop is much quieter and a good length hike, although I think the views are better if you take the Queen's Garden / Navajo trails PLUS detour via the Peek-a-Boo loop (this will add about three or... More

There's a hike along the rim, but the best view is to go down into the canyon and unfortunately back up. If you start by Sunset Point, the way down is steeper than the way up. I am 46, in mediocre shape and from flat low... More
