You are cordially invited to celebrate Bryce Canyon's thrilling Night-Life! Check your calendar and join us for a uniquely "Bryce" experience.
During full moons, (1-2 consecutive nights each month), when the mix of shadows and moonlight cause the hoodoos to take on spooky personalities, we offer 1-2 mile-long moonlit hikes.
Typically (but depending on staffing) the park offers two hike options--a more strenuous hike that descends down into the canyon along steep and rocky trails and an easier hike that travels along the rim of the plateau.
Due to the nature of this special activity all participants must agree to the following rules:
Full Moon Lottery Information
The number of visitors we can accommodate on our Full Moon Hikes is limited for safety reasons. Lotteries are held at 4 p.m. in the Visitor Center theater. All those hoping to join a Full Moon Hike must arrive at the Visitor Center a few minutes before 4 p.m. (Mountain Time) to be included in the lottery. Latecomers will not be allowed to participate.

Winter Full Moon Snowshoe Hike
Possible November - March (snowpack depth must exceed 16")
During Winter full moons when snow levels are at 16" or higher, we offer our full moon hikes as a snowshoe activity for free. All other moon hike details remain the same, but the addition of snowshoes does make this a more strenous activity. Come visit the Visitor Center or explore our website for additional Winter Activity information.
