The listed hikes below are classified as easy. They have gentle grades, some partially paved and minimal elevation changes.

  • Mossy Cave (.8 mi / 1.3 km round trip)
    Located outside of the amphitheater on highway 12 going toward Tropic, this trail is a streamside walk up to a mossy overhang and small waterfall. (Waterfall flows May to October)
  • Rim Trail(11 mi / 17.7 km round trip) & Sunset Point to Sunrise Point Trail(1 mi / 1.6 km round trip)
    Observe the amphitheater and it's hoodoos along the rim and if planned right, visit all four main viewpoints. Sunset Point to Sunrise Point Rim Trail is paved and fairly level.
  • Bristlecone Loop(1.0 mi / 1.6 km round trip)
    Hike through spruce-fir forests to cliffs with bristlecone pines and expansive vistas.
  • Queens Garden(1.8 mi / 2.9 km round trip)
    This is the least difficult trail into the canyon. Using your imagination you may even see Queen Victoria at the end of a short spur trail.
