Wish, there would have been www for checking destinations when I was first in Bryce Canyon. Nowadays, having the superb website of Bryce Canyon, you can plan your hiking trails prior to your trip.

For all the trails, they give exact topo, mark the trail and have a hike overview chart with length, climbing and descending part.

The hikes, covered are:
Upper Inspiration Point (.3 miles / .5 km round trip),
Mossy Cave (.9 miles / 1.5 km round trip),
Bristlecone Loop (1.0 miles / 1.6 km round trip),
Navajo Loop (1.3 miles / 2.2 km round trip),
Queen's Garden/Navajo Loop Combination (2.9 miles / 4.6 km round trip),
Tower Bridge (3 miles / 4.8 km round trip),
Hat Shop (4 miles / 6.5 km round trip),
Swamp Canyon Loop (4.3 miles / 7.2 km round trip),
Peekaboo Loop (5.5 miles / 8.8 km round trip),
Fairyland Loop (8 miles / 12.9 km round trip),
Riggs Spring Loop (8.5 miles / 14.2 km round trip).

Equipment: As there are no outdoor shops in Bryce Canyon :-), you better prepare your hiking, bringing all you usually take.
Good hiking shoes with good profile and ankle protection should be considered a must, as the trails leed steep into the canyons;
hiking poles are good as well, as it helps the knees;
warm sweater, as it might get cool in the deep canyons;
sunglasses, as the sun can get hot, and the skies usually are that clean;
WATER - WATER - WATER.

Address: whichever trail you choose
