Bryce Canyon National Park Sports & Outdoors: 22 reviews and 36 photos
While Bryce National Park is not a premier hiking destination, it does have a nice smattering of short to medium length hikes that most reasonably fit people can tackle. The trails are very well-groomed and marked so even a complete novice can navigate them. But if you are hiking to the canyon floor, you should always be ready for the hike back up. While the distances are short, the hikes in and out of the canyon are fairly steep and exposed. For this reason, carry plenty of water and take precautions to protect yourself from the sun. Hiking in the early morning hours is the best way to not only escape the heat but crowds as well.
Equipment: Even though many of Bryce's trails are short, good hiking boots are best to protect your ankles on the steep terrain. A wide brimmed hat helps protect not only your head but face from the sun. Sunglasses protect your eyes and make the colors of the rock formations even more spectacular. If you hike early morning, you'll likely need a fleece and we even a warm hat. At this elevation, the mornings are quite chilly.
