Notes

The Fairyland Loop Trail in Bryce Canyon is a tough hike in southern Utah that feature dramatic canyon scenery. This Bryce Canyon hiking trail is one of the less traveled trails in the National Park. That's because this hike is tough. More than 2,000 ft. of elevation change over 8 miles makes it not for everyone. However those that hike this trail are rewarded with dramatic vistas filled with hoodoos, spires and more. Along the trail hikers can expect great views of China Wall, a short spur trip to Tower Bridge and ample wildflowers and wildlife. This trail may not be the best for young kids. Happy Hiking and make sure to carry plenty of water and sunscreen. Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, Sunset and North Campgrounds.

History

Mormon Pioneers settled Bryce Canyon in the early 1850’s. The park is named after Ebenezer Bryce who homesteaded in the area in the 1870's.
