Navajo Loop and Queens Garden Trail
2.6 mile Loop
There are some steep grades and edges where you have to keep an eye on the kids, but this loop is a great option for a family due to its easy access, relatively moderate grades, and great views, and yes very crowded.
Prepare to be amazed by this magical trip through otherworldly rock formations. This popular trail can be crowded especially near the rim, but the throngs often thin out in the lower canyon reaches. From Sunrise Point, drop into the canyon along a steep but wide trail along a ridgeline. Weave down through towering multicolored spires and past sparsely wooded areas. The most sweeping views occur at the top, but as you descend, the cliffs and hoodoos encroach. After a series of switchbacks and a few man-made tunnels, the descent eases considerably. Proceed through a ravine with multicolored hoodoos galore.
Climb up a wooded slope as the cliff walls get taller and closer as you ascend. After a very steep section of switchbacks, the Thor's Hammer formation appears and your back at the top rim. #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnationalpark #nationalpark #queensgardentrail #navajoloop
