I have been to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />BryceCanyon a few times in the past. I researched on the internet and found that this Queen's Garden and Navajo Loop combined trail is one of the top 20 tails in National Parks recommended by National Geographic.
I got to the Sunset point and parked there. I then followed the rim trail and walked to the Sunrise point along the rim with the Bryce canyon below. I then descended to the Queen's garden. The road is fully exposed to the sunlight and warm. There is little snow on the floor. Part of the road is muddy because of the melting snow. The proximity to the hoodoos gave me a different prospective. Well worth the hike. It was cool and not hot, sunny, a perfect day for the hike. The best part is that there is nobody around. I walked the whole loop without seeing anybody. So if you enjoy solitude, hike here in winter is your cup of tea.
The ascending trail back to the sunset point through Wall Street is blocked because the road is covered with snow and ice. The high walls blocked the sunlight. However, it is not very slippery. I ignored the warming sign and continued the tail.
There is an error in my GPS log because the iphone lost GPS signal in Wall Street. So, the trail stretched out. Otherwise, the trail should assemble an Arabic eight.
Majority of the trail is under direct sunlight. There is hardly any snow left. The trail in the wall street is covered with snow. Additional traction is recommended. I suppose that it will be very hot in the summer. I walked this trail in early Feb. cool, sunny and perfect for hike this trail.
