Fairyland Loop Trail

Tropic, UT

This hike is called Fairyland for a good reason. Bryce Canyon National Park contains a collection of extravagant scenery in a concentrated area. Viewing the eccentric shapes from the canyon rim is great, but to really relish this fantasy land you must hike down below the rim and let your imagination run wild. It is hard to beat a stroll among the alien shapes know as "hoodoos", which have been eroded from a thick layer of soft sedimentary rock deposited over 60 million years ago.
