Bryce Canyon’s Navajo Loop/Queens Garden Loop is a popular trail for good reason, with constant views of hoodoos—the multi-colored, limestone, sandstone, and mudstone spires that look like giant, melting candles, including the famous formation called Thor’s Hammer. But once turning onto the Peek-a-Boo Loop, you lose the crowds—and discover the scenic heart of Bryce Canyon while hiking below the Wall of Windows and row after row of towers in fluorescent shades of red and orange.

Click on the photo gallery below to view several images from that six-mile dayhike combining Bryce Canyon’s Navajo Loop/Queens Garden Loop and Peek-a-Boo Loop. Then read my story about a trip to Bryce and other southern Utah parks for more pictures from that hike and tips on planning that trip.

Plus, see all of my stories about hiking and backpacking in southern Utah, or visit my All Trips By State page and scroll down to Utah.
