Just beautiful, and a nice taster before Bryce Canyon. Hikes are great and well marked, and the trail guides really informative (pick them up from the helpful staff in the visitor centre).

Our first trip and I was amazed! We drove through the arches, stopped at the visitor center and walked some of the trails. Nice slow pace.

Red Canyon is great, it's just like Bryce, except a little less formal. It really should be part of the park and protected that way. You can hike or climb, kids love it, it's really accessible right next to the road. Also very photo worthy and kind of makes for a nice introduction to Bryce Canyon NP or a hint... More

Rode from the ATV trail head all the way into the town of Panguitch. The town is ATV friendly which is really cool. The terrain changes from red rock to forest to unique grey rock. On the way back we almost ran over a small rattlesnake so be careful if you decide to venture off the trails into the bush.... More

You will find it just prior to the entrance to Bryce Canyon. It is a very picturesque place given the rock formations and the red color of the soil. There is a nice campground as well as numerous self guided hiking trails. A couple miles prior but also part of this area is the Losee and Casto Canyons which offer... More

The best thing about Red Canyon in June is that you don't have to compete with the dozens of busloads of tourists and hundreds of hikers you run into in Bryce and Zion. Same red rocks, same hoodoos, just no people, especially on the Arches Trail. Oh - and it's free! Note that the trail can be a little slippery... More

We questioned if we should have stayed in the town outside of Bryce Canyon but the area looked to be owned by one family and not top notch reviews. We stayed in Panguitch which we are glad we did because we came across this area on the way back into Bryce. We stopped at the visitor center and got a... More

We were on our way to Bryce Canyon and came across Red Canyon. It is a short distance from the town of Panguitch. Very petty red rock against bright blue skis. There are two arches that you drive through also, with lots of places to pull over and take pictures. So pretty!

We will definitely spend more time here next time. We were pushed for time, so we only stopped briefly and took a few pictures. It is a really breathtaking area. I would highly recommend stopping!
