Here are our suggested hikes!
- The Queen’s Garden Trail is a 1.8-mile trail that takes hikers along the bottom of the canyon providing up close access to the mysterious hoodoos found at Bryce. As the trail winds through the canyon, it meets up with the Navajo Loop. If hikers choose to continue on the new trail it will add an extra 1.3 miles to their adventure. Both trails are classified as moderate. Once the loop has been completed, a short walk along the Rim Trail will take hikers back to their vehicles.
- The 8-mile Fairyland Loop Trail will take explores through a pink and cream colored wonderland worthy of “Alice.” The trail wonders past a forest of hoodoos speckled with the green of juniper trees and the ancient bristle cone pines trees. Sights along the trail include hoodoos with such names as the “Chinese Wall” and “Tower Bridge.” Once the trail has ended, there is a short walk along the Rim Trail back to the parking lot at the Fairyland Canyon Overview. This hike is classified as moderate, and as with all hiking adventures, be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks to keep from becoming dehydrated or too tired to complete the hike.

Leaving the rim, you climb Bristlecone Pine Ridge with standing 1500 year old Bristlecone Pines. (One of the oldest living things on the North American Continent.) From this ridge you will also see Boat Mesa and Sinking Ship Peak, some of the higher points in Fairyland Amphitheater. This is a 4 ½ mile loop. Rides start at 8:30AM and 10:30AM. Book your Ride Now!
If you are not comfortable on the back of a horse, book a guided ATV ride.

If you are interested in a light hike, visit Mossey Cave! Located 3 miles east of Ruby’s Inn. Mossey Cave Trail is an easy 0.9 mile walk to a mysterious, watery oasis in this desert region. The trail offers a wonderful view of the canyon and ends at an alcove covered in moss created by the natural springs seeping through the sandstone. Let your kids play in the water to keep cool.
