Freeze and thaw a plateau a few billion times and you’ll end up with amphitheatres of rock towers called hoodoos. Here you’ll find the most abundant collection of them in the world.
There are a ton of ways to explore the park. Start by driving or hiking along the rim for the views. Pro tip: For the best sunrise photos, skip Sunrise Point and hit Inspiration or Bryce Point instead. If you’re feeling frisky, get out among the hoodoo by foot or horseback. The 2.6 mile Navajo Loop Trail will take you to Wall Street where you’ll find impossible Douglas Fir trees and the Queen’s Garden. Start early to avoid the crowds. If you’re looking for some solitude, the Fairyland trail is a 7.6 mile slice of heaven.
Sunset and North campground are the closest places to stay overnight. Even if you’re beat, it’s worth staying up for the night sky. No light pollution makes for great stargazing and astrophotography.
Spring, summer, and fall temperatures are usually comfortable but winter is chilly. Bring warmies because snow is always a possibility. We like spring the best. The snow hasn’t melted and contrasts perfectly with the red rock.
