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

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.

A wonderful surprise on our way to Tropic. Stopped a few times on the way to Bryce and Zion. Very scenic, especially early and late in the day. Definitely worth a stop.

Liked the paved bike path so well that I did it twice. Spent two days here and could have stayed longer. ATV trails with incredible scenery. The rocks as are as red as they look in pictures.
