Bryce Canyon National Park

Winter hiking

Hiking in the snow takes a considerable amount of effort and balance. Some trails may close briefly after storms and some areas, such as Fairyland and Paria View are closed off to vehicles and reserved for skliiers and snowshoers. But popular trails such as the Rim Trail and Queen's Garden stay open year round, although snow may obscure the trail and make hiking difficult. The park service has snowshoes available, but will not rent them until there is more than a foot of snow on the ground. If you're planning to visit in the winter, its a good idea to bring your own or make arrangements to rent them elsewhere.

Hiking

Bryce Canyon is one of the most accessible national parks. There are plenty of hiking trails which are short and relatively easy and can be found right off the main road. That's one of the things that makes this park so great for the casual or limited time visitor. There's no need to search for a trailhead or drive down a 4X4 road to get to see the sights.

Of course, there are bigger and better rewards for those who take the time and effort to explore Bryce in depth. But for those who can't spare the time or find the inclination, Bryce's short trails are a great way to see the park. Two of the most popular trails are Queens Garden and Navajo Loop. Both are short, not too steep and incredibly scenic.
