Bryce Canyon National Park's most defining features, hoodoos, are even more otherworldly when freshly dusted with snow. The park's vertical, red-orange spires rising up from the canyon are strikingly beautiful set against the fallen snow, blue sky, and evergreen trees in the winter. Experience southern Utah's winter wonderland up close by trekking the park's more moderate, snow-packed trails like the combined Queen’s Garden and Navajo Loop Trail.
Plan on at least two to three hours for this 2.9-mile hike, which departs from Sunset Point to Sunrise Point along the canyon rim overlooking the red rock formations, then descends into the canyon's main amphitheater via the Queen's Garden Trail so you’re walking among the protruding hoodoos, including one shaped like Queen Victoria. Connect to the Navajo Loop (note: the Wall Street side closes every winter, so it's not a full loop), which switchbacks through well-known hoodoo formations like Thor’s Hammer and Twin Bridges and ends at Sunset Point.
