My husband and I took our 3 young children to hike in Bryce last year. We chose the Navajo loop. We enjoyed showing our kids the beautiful vistas from each different part of the hike. The children loved finding new places to run ahead and hide in the rock wall and jump out to scare us. Half of the hike is downhill which means the other half is uphill to get back to the top of the canyon. Though our 5 year old started to get tired all 3 of our children were able to do it without being carried. When we were at the top looking down to see the hike they had just accomplished we all felt proud. It was a great experience in Bryce Canyon.
