Top 5 Family Friendly Hikes in Bryce Canyon National Park

1- Navajo Loop Trail

This is easily our favorite hike in Bryce Canyon. In fact, we love it so much, we made it Dilbert’s hike in the book. This trail is considered moderate because the hike back out is uphill. It is worth it, and the best way to see the unique rock formations and hoodoos of Bryce!

Length: 2.9 Miles Moderate

2– Wall Street Trail

This one follows some of the path of number 1, but it varies slightly and adds some length. Again, it’s a bit of a climb back out of the canyon, and it can get slippery when icy, so it’s best to enjoy this trail in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Length: 3.2 Moderate

3– Sunset Point to Sunrise Point

For those with little legs unable to walk up hills, this trail is perfect! It features a paved trail (that you can easily push a stroller along) that takes you past the stunning overlook points of Bryce Canyon.

Length: 1.1 miles Easy

4 Queen Victoria Via Queen’s Garden Loop

If you want to go down into the ampitheater to see the hoodoos up close, but you are nervous about little hikers, this trail is perfect! It is the easiest of the trails that discends down. It is also pretty short, so it gives you a great taste of Bryce without commiting to a longer trail.

Length 2.1 miles Easy

5-Mossy Cave Turret Arch and Little Window Trail

This trail is very popular because of its stunning views in only 1 mile easy trail. You will see water and caves and little windows in the rocks like those seen in Dilbert!

Length: 1 mile Easy

This is why you bring bear spray to the Grand Tetons

It’s a little nuts, but wanted to share for the first time how we photographed “Dilbert the Duck visits the Grand Tetons” to look the way it did. It’s trickier than you think (even as pretty as the Tetons are)— sometimes it takes a little… well… craziness! October 2021, our caravan passed through pouring rain […]
