One or More Days
In addition to the above, you can hike the park's moderate and strenuous trails in the main Bryce Amphitheater.

Drive to Rainbow Point (18 miles one way) and stop at the 13 viewpoints on your return trip. Check at the Visitor Center for current road conditions and closures.

Take a wrangler-guided horseback ride on a 2 or 4-hour trip into the amphitheater.
