Full Moon Hikes
You are cordially invited to celebrate Bryce Canyon's thrilling Night Life! Check your calendar and join us for these uniquely-Bryce experiences. During full moons, (1-2 consecutive nights each month), when the mix of shadows and moonlight cause the hoodoos to take on spooky personalities, we offer 1-2 mile-long moonlit hikes. These hikes descend down into the canyon along steep and rocky trails. Due to the nature of this special activity all participants must agree to the following rules.
Children under age 6 are not permitted.
Hiking boots or hiking shoes (lug soles) are required for your safety and the safety of the Park Staff and other Participant(s).
Flashlights, headlamps are not allowed. Flash photography may be permitted under key restrictions.
Bring drinking water and a jacket - nightime temperatures can be cold.
Due to steep and rocky trails this activity is not wheelchair accessible.
NOTE: The number of visitors we can accommodate on our Full Moon Hikes is limited for safety reasons. Tickets for the Full Moon Hike will be distributed via lottery on the day of the hike and each person in your family or group must be present (with the hiking shoes/boots they plan to wear!), however, only one person per group needs to hold a winning number. Each person in your family or group should take a number to increase the chance of obtaining a ticket to join the hike. There is a strict limit of EIGHT (8) participants per winning lottery number. The lottery will be held in the Bryce Canyon Lodge Auditorium at precisely 3:00 pm MDT; lottery number distribution will begin at 2:30 p.m. MDT and no tickets will be distributed once the lottery begins - please do not arrive at the Lodge prior to 2:30 pm.
