Fairyland Canyon#6 in Best Things To Do in Bryce Canyon National Park
Price & Hours
This scenic overlook, which sits 1 mile north of the park entrance station, is a great place to see hoodoos up close. The trailhead for the strenuous 8-mile Fairyland Loop is located at this viewpoint and descends into the Fairyland, takes you around Boat Mesa and eventually ascends to meet the Rim Trail at Sunrise Point. You can follow the Rim Trail back north to the Fairyland Canyon overlook.
Recent visitors who made the trek called it "absolutely stunning" and a great option if you're looking for a day-long hike in the park. Since you'll likely be making frequent stops for photo ops, you'll want to allot several hours to complete the trek. According to reviewers, the hike can take more than four hours.
Access to Fairyland Canyon is included in your park admission. There is a parking lot, but no other services are available here. For more information on the trail, visit the NPS website.
