The valley east of the rim was used by cattle ranchers long before the national park was created. The hike I describe below starts at Bryce Point, but it is also possible to begin the walk at Sunset Point. From there you can descend below the rim through Wall Street Canyon or on the Navajo Trail and arrive at the northern end of Peekaboo Loop 1.0 mile later. The total walking distance of the hike if you begin at Sunset Point is 5.0 miles. Whichever route you choose, when you reach the beginning of the loop I suggest you turn left and walk around it in a clockwise direction. The Wall of Windows, which is the highlight of the Peekaboo Loop, should be approached from the south, its most impressive side. If you are interested in photographing the Wall of Windows the best lighting is before noon, while the sun is in the east.
