From Ancestral Puebloan to Grand Staircase, there are lots of things that you can do inside the national park. For those who have already been to Bryce Canyon, here are some of their highly recommended spots that you should definitely visit:
Under the Rim Trail
Hiking is one of the best activities that you can enjoy at Bryce National Park. This 23 mile trail that runs from Rainbow Point all the way through to Bryce Point is a perfect hiking destination. You and your friends can backpack and choose to set up a camp and split the hike into two days. Unlike other trails, you would not encounter too many people. During winter, travelers can also enjoy backcountry snowshoeing below the rim.
Peek a Boo Loop
The name itself was chosen due to the fact that this trail allows you to have a peek inside the canyon. The Peek a Boo Loop traverses the Queen Garden and connects all the way to the canyon. Its elevation goes up and down. As it goes on to the end you get to see the very heart of the canyon, this is a must see view. Some tourists fail to reach this look as they prefer to see the Sunrise Point along with other trails found nearby. Peek a Boo Loop is a cool spot as it gives you a good perspective, amazing views of the canyon and not to mention a challenging workout.
Mossy Cave Trail
Mossy Cave Trail is a hidden spot that most people cannot see. It features a waterfall found in the park. For you to reach the place, you have to drive outside the park. From there, you can hike all the way to the waterfall. This is an easy one which is totally different from the Peek a Boo Trail. With the nice view of the waterfall, you can bring in some picnic lunch and a blanket and enjoy eating your meal and spend time with your loved ones.
Park Jr. Rangers Program
For families and friends, the Park Jr. Rangers Program can give you a good insight into Bryce Canyon National Park. It gives you more information about the park like where to stay and not to stay while you are inside the park during a lightning storm. Enjoy hiking anywhere and the different places that this park has to offer.
For an enjoyable and breathtaking ride, take the Mt. Carmel Tunnel from Zion going to Bryce. This route gives you majestic views of steep canyons as you enjoy the winding roads and the magnificent sights that the area has to offer. Make sure to stop at Inspiration Point where you get to see the complete view of Bryce Amphitheater elevated at 8,000 ft high.
