Things to do, self-guided tours, and more. Scan code at right: Welcome to Bryce Canyon, home to the largest collection of hoodoos (irregularly-eroded rock spires) in the world! Situated along the east edge of a plateau, the park has one main 18-mile north-to-south road and only one entrance/exit. As you enter the park, all viewpoints and hikes are on the left. BRYCE AMPHITHEATER This iconic area is located along the first three miles of the main road, and has four main viewpoints: Bryce, Inspiration, Sunset, and Sunrise Points. We suggest visiting these viewpoints in this same order (south to north). Most of the park’s day hikes are found here. Avoid full parking lots: Use free shuttle to see the Bryce Amphitheater April to October. See “Bryce Amphitheater Shuttle” on opposite page. VISITING 1 TO 3 HOURS? Enjoy the Bryce Amphitheater area of the park. Using the shuttle (April - October) or your own vehicle, visit all four viewpoints listed above. For an easy walk, enjoy the 0.5-mile (0.8 km) section of Rim Trail between Sunset and Sunrise Points. The more challenging 2.9-mile (4.6 km) Queen’s/Navajo Combination Loop can be started at either Sunset or Sunrise Point and usually takes 2 hours. SOUTHERN SCENIC DRIVE Drive the main road 18 miles (35 min) until it ends at the park’s highest elevations at Rainbow and Yovimpa Points. Consider the 1-mile Bristlecone Loop to stretch your legs. Stop at viewpoints like Natural Bridge and Agua Canyon on your return trip north. MOSSY CAVE Located off Highway 12 in the north end of the park, this is the only easy hike that begins below the hoodoos. See a waterfall in summer and icicles in winter. Please observe trail signs in this fragile area. VISITING 4+ HOURS? Consider the trip ideas at left, and if the park is busy, consider beginning with the Southern Scenic Drive as described above. Consider more strenuous hikes like the 6.4-mile (10.2 km) Figure-8 Combination or 8-mile (12.9 km) Fairyland Loop. If looking for easier hikes, enjoy a short walk at Mossy Cave in the early morning or late afternoon. Pick up a Junior Ranger book at the Visitor Center and see the Park Film and Museum. Join us for a Ranger Program, or enjoy other Things to Do listed inside this guide. Enjoy Your Park Responsibly NO DRONES Unmanned aircraft is restricted from use in all national parks, including Bryce Canyon National Park. Violators are subject to legal action and fines in accordance with 36 CFR 1.5. Report drone use to nearest park ranger. LIGHTNING If you hear thunder, a storm is within 10 miles and a strike is possible. The plateau rim is the most dangerous place. Move to a building or vehicle, avoiding trees, hoodoos, and other tall objects. Lightning has claimed 4 lives and injured 6 in the past 30 years at Bryce Canyon .

Counter-clockwise direction recommended; Wall Street side closed in winter. Combine with Queen’s Garden to form loop below.

WILDLIFE VIEWING Pullouts are available for viewing from park roads. Prairie dogs and other wildlife most abundant March through October. Stop by the Visitor Center for lists of park species. If you can cover the animal with your thumb at arm’s length you’re at a safe and respectful distance. Feeding wildlife is animal cruelty, exposes you to danger and infectious disease.
