Bryce Canyon Hikes & Exploration
Sunrise/Sunset Point on the Rim Trail ↑
Navajo Loop Trail ↑
At the bottom, the landscape changes and you’ll feel like you’re in a forest mixed with hoodoos. Continuing on the trail, through the canyon, you’ll enter what is called the ‘silent city’, which is rows of crowded pink, orange, and brown hoodoos.
Queens Garden Trail ↑
Drive Scenic Road (Natural Bridge) ↑
Check the Visitors Center on your way out and give yourself a pat on the back as you’ve seen, you came and you conquered!

where to stay
#JESSATRAVELTIP you can pay to use the showers even if you’re not staying at the campground. We used them after our full day at Bryce and it was worth it! 7 minutes of hot water, the best $6 we spent the whole trip!

Visiting Bryce Canyon on a Day Trip?
where to eat
Lodge at Bryce Canyon– Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menus are geared towards ‘healthy eating’ and are designed with vegetarian, low-fat, and gluten-free options based on mostly sustainable ingredients organically grown or raised. It’s also reasonably priced. This is by far the best food you’ll get around here. I did not personally stay here but the accommodations looked like something I would stay at the next time I visit.
Cowboy Buffet and Steak Room– This restaurant is located at Ruby’s Inn and is always busy. Open daily from 6:30-9 it provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. It is family style western dining offering sandwiches, steaks, and a buffet with a salad bar. The gift shop at Ruby’s is a great place to grab a souvenir or unique trinket.
