Moderate Hikes

Moderate Hikes have steep grades with "down and back" elevation changes, and include the following trails:

Navajo Trail (1.3 mi/2.2 km round trip) The Navajo Loop begins at Sunset Point and goes down into Bryce Amphitheater through a "slot" canyon where large Douglas-fir trees are stretching to reach sunlight high above.

Tower Bridge (3 mi/4.8 km round trip) See Bristlecone pines and the China Wall. A shady 1/4-mile spur trail leads to the bridge.

Hat Shop (4 mi/6.4 km round trip) Descend to the Under-the-Rim Trail to see a cluster of balanced-rock hoodoos.

Swamp Canyon (4.3 mi/7.2 km round trip) Descend into one of the lesser-known areas of Bryce Canyon.
