How to Spend Two Days in Bryce Canyon National Park

Are you planning to spend two days in Bryce Canyon National Park? Listed below is what I recommend to enjoy the stunning landscapes of this beautiful park.

How to spend one day in Bryce Canyon National Park.

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah, known for its vast amount of hoodoos, or irregular columns of rock. This park is home to the largest amount of hoodoos found on earth – a stunning sight to see!

Two Days in Bryce Canyon National Park

Our trip to Bryce Canyon was short and sweet. If you get the chance to spend more time within the park, we highly recommend you do so. However, you can still see stunning views of the park within 48 hours.

Day One Itinerary

Fairyland Loop Trail is a strenuous 8.0 mile hike with an elevation gain of 1,900 feet. This hike consists of stunning views of an abundance of hoodoos, arches, pine forests, and the endless beauty this National Park has to offer. I recommend starting this hike early in the day to beat the afternoon heat. Be sure to pack enough water and snacks to provide the energy needed to complete this hike.

Day Two Itinerary

For your second day in Bryce Canyon, stop at The Lodge for a casual dining experience. They serve breakfast starting at 7 am, lunch at 11:30 am, and dinner until 9 pm. The menu portrays everything from soups, to salads, to pasta, to burgers. The Lodge is located in the heart of the park, a short drive from both Sunset Point and Sunrise Point, both offering breathtaking views of hoodoos.

To end your time in Bryce Canyon, I recommend hiking the Navajo Loop and Queens Garden Trail at sunrise, or two hours before sunset. This will ensure a stunning view of the glow on the red rocks portrayed throughout this hike. It is a 3.1 mile loop trail; I recommend starting from the Sunset Point hiking towards Sunrise Point, to prevent hiking up a steep incline on the switchbacks.

Looking to visit other National Parks near Bryce Canyon? I recommend visiting MoabZion, or Capitol Reef National Park!
