"Navajo Loop Trail - easy day hike" Top 5 Page for this destination Bryce Canyon National Park Sports & Outdoors Tip by Trekki

  the ever prominent Navajo Loop Trail
by Trekki

If you are in the park only for 1 day and want to get a bit closer to the geologic history, do the Navajo Loop Trail. It?s an easy hike of 1,5 miles round trip with climbing and descending each 500 feet.

On the way (if you hike anti-clockwise), you?ll meet our friend Thor?s Hammer, you will encounter Wall Street with it?s 200 ft high red limestone walls, and you will encounter the famous well-photographed Douglas Firs, which grow on the trail and stretch themselves high into the air to grab sunlight.
The picture shows a bit of the trail ? light and shady parts, that?s why also here, you would need to take a warm sweater with you, just in case.

Equipment: Hiking shoes, hiking poles and warm sweater. Plus water and some granola bars or fruit.
