Hiking The Navajo Trail At Bryce Canyon

By | May 1, 2013

Everyone I talked with said that I needed to hike the Navajo Loop Trail while I was at Bryce Canyon National Park. It took me a little while to find the trailhead but I finally did. Part of the this trail was closed because of a rock slide but I decided to hike what I could. This was an amazing hike!

Navajo Trail begins at Sunset Point and travels down into the main amphitheater. This is one of the more popular trails and extra caution is advised due to the fact that more rocks fall on this trail than any other trail in the park! A major rock slide occurred in 2006, and subsequent rockslides occurred in 2010 and 2011. This trail may also be combined with the Queens Garden Trail which will create a longer, but more varied, loop. (National Park Service)
