This short loop winds through the southern head of Bryce Canyon and many strange and fascinating rock formations. It can be hiked from Sunset Point, Sunrise Point and Bryce Point.

Peekaboo Loop extends three and a half miles through the hoodoos of the southern head of Bryce Canyon. The trailhead from which you begin the hike determines the length of your trek. Beginning from Sunrise Point hikers use the Queen's Garden Trail making it approximately seven miles round trip. Individuals leaving the Sunset Point Trailhead have a five and a half mile hike via Navajo Loop Trail. Beginning this trek from Bryce Point makes the trek a six and a half mile loop. From all of these trailheads along the rim, the route descends into Bryce Canyon (farther north in the drainage if descending from Sunrise and Sunset Points). Once in the canyon the loop ascends over a ridge between two washes. If hiking southward from Sunset and Sunrise Points midway through the loop you'll reach the trail that leads north from Bryce Point. If hiking northward from Bryce Point, midway through Peekaboo Loop you'll reach the trail descending from Sunrise and Sunset Points. These two trail junctions lie at approximately 7,570 feet. From these point the loop ascends through the hoodoos, reaching a high point of 7,860 feet.
