Great little scenic drive on the road from Zion to Bryce Canyon. The Hoodoos are slightly different than the ones in Bryce and the red geological formations never cease to impress me. Nice little bonus on the way to Bryce.

The rock formations are amazing and the area is quite a bonus on the route from Grand Staircase Escalante to Bryce and Zion. We were able to get some supplies in Tropic but there were no restaurants open until we reached Mount Carmel at the junction of the 89 and the 9 going to Zion so plan ahead in the... More

Red Canyon is a beautiful spot just a few miles west of the entrance to Bryce Canyon. The road going through also has two arches or tunnels you drive through. It's worth taking some photos and getting out a bit, but know that during the summer the red dirt sticks to everything and will bet in your car/etc.

This is not a big park, and it is full of red rock formations and red hoodoos, cliffs, and even a slot canyon. Not bad. It even has a nice visitor center with an interesting self guided tour. Its only problem is its proximity to Bryce Canyon NP, which is an amazing place. So if you get to red canyon... More

Our jaws dropped when we entered Red Canyon. It was not on our itinerary and was a fantastic surprise on our drive from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon to Bryce. We stopped at the pullouts, took pictures and did a little hiking--the photo opportunities are amazing and the reds of the rocks are deeper and more brilliant than... More

Red Canyon is a beautiful area, which is often overlooked. I would recommend a quick side trip to Red Canyon when visiting Bryce Canyon

Don't miss Red Canyon! There are numerous pullouts on the highway and several walking trails. There's good information available at the Visitors Center (which does have limited hours) .We did the Pink Ledges trail - we were given a leaflet giving information about numbered stops on the trail. It's fairly easy and you are right among the hoodoos without having... More

We drove it and stopped at all turnouts. End of day we decided to extend our stay and went back to hike the hoodoo's. 9 miles doing Queens/navarro loop and Peekaboo loop. Amazing, a bit more than I should have tried, but I made it. They have horses you can join a group and go, was kinda wishing I'd checked... More

It is highly rated by several ATV organizations with ratings varying between 1 and 5. Easy to see why. Go in the morning and watch the rock formations change color as the sun rises. Spectacular!

What a pleasant surprise driving through Red Canyon. Great rock formations and brilliant color. We had a deep blue sky so the pictures were gorgeous.
