Hiking the Peekaboo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park

Perhaps my favorite trail in the park, the Peekaboo Loop trail in Bryce Canyon National Park is an absolute beauty! The trail itself is 5.2 miles long with a total elevation gain of 1,453 feet and is most commonly done as a loop trail. The trail starts near Bryce Point; you traverse down a series of switchbacks until you get to your first crossroads. From there, do the trail in either direction! I usually go right, making this trip counter-clockwise. Sometimes, park rangers say you must complete the trail in a certain direction. Be sure to pay attention to all signs!
