“Although still challenging, this is the easiest way to get below the rim and view hoodoos up close.”— Megan W
Family Friendly While there are some steep sections, this trail has some man-made tunnels and the opportunity to see many hoodoos and spires and the Queen Victoria formation.
Back on the main trail, cross washes and forest over mostly level ground. Contour around the base of a large cliff formation before reaching a trail junction with the Navajo Loop and Peekaboo - Navajo Connector. The Queens Garden Trail officially ends here, but many nice loops can be constructed from this point.
Bring yaktrax or other foot traction for winter travel. Some people with a fear of heights have reported feeling nervous in some parts. Keep kids away from the edges.
