TROPIC TRAIL is a great way to hike into Bryce Canyon National Park to see lots of Hoodoos and enjoy a unique hiking experience at the same time. The trailhead is located only about 3 miles from our Guest House.
DIRECTIONS: As you drive out of our Guest House driveway, follow our dirt road back until it intersects with the next dirt road (by the large rock sign). This is the intersection of "Under the Rim" road and "Bryce Way" road. Turn right at this intersection following this dirt road about 2 miles all the way until it dead-ends at the trailhead. When you arrive at the Tropic Trailhead, you will see a parking area when the road ends in a small cul-de-sac. At the national park border fence, is a permanent and safe step-ladder providing easy access over the fence to the Tropic Trail.
THE HIKE: This hike, up into the national park, is about 2.6 miles long. At first, you will traverse a lowland conifer forest section, then arrive at the breathtaking hoodoo rock structures about 2/3 of the way up the trail! The Tropic Trail is one of the "best kept secrets" at Bryce Canyon National Park! This trail will lead you to the famous national park trails: Peekaboo Loop, and Queen's Garden/Navajo Loop considered by many to be the most beautiful 3-mile hike in the world!
