This popular trail makes a short 1- to 2-hour loop from the rim at Sunset Point down to the floor of Bryce Canyon. The trail visits favorite hoodoo formations such as Wall Street, Twin Bridges, and Thor’s Hammer. From Sunset Point the trail immediately descends along a paved path with safety railings along the edges. After about 100 feet the railing ends and the path splits, wit two trails heading off to the right (south) and one trail heading off to the left (east). The left hand path is the eastern leg of the Navajo Loop. The two right-hand paths consist of an upper and a lower trail.

Wall Street is incredible. This is a great hike for the entire family. You can't take a bad picture here. Truly an amazing work of nature. If you only have one hike to do in Bryce, this is it.

This hike was unique and a lot of fun. Not too challenging, but not an "easy" hike either. Loved the hoodoo formations!

Spectacular! There was a light dusting of snow on everything, which made the nuances of the rock stand out. The hike took me longer than it should have for the distance and difficulty; I felt compelled to stop every 25 feet or so to gape at the natural beauty and take pictures. A terrific blend of solitude (only 1 other group of hikers on the Navajo), scenery, and difficulty (lots of switchbacks). 5 stars.

We descended the trail via the sunset trail to the Queens Garden Trail then up the Navajo Loop. The visuals were indescribable. Pictures don't do the scenery justice. Coming up the Navajo Loop to Wall Street was a challenging bunch of switchbacks that ascended to around 700 feet. OMG it was worth it.

During the descent, it was cold and muddy. However, it was quite rewarding after the first (and wet) half was completed. We saw quite a bit of wildlife. I would recommend checking trail conditions ahead of time when planning on hiking this trail during the Spring season as our shoes were a mess with all of the mud. Very, very rewarding!
