Warning!!! If you are pulling a tall 5th wheel, there are two tunnels in Red Canyon with a maximum height of 13'6" and this information is not readily available until you turn onto Scenic 12. Don't peal off the top of your RV! Red Canyon is beautiful with hoodoos and spires that you shouldn't pass up. There are plenty of... More

If you're driving from Zion to Bryce Canyon (or vice-versa), you'll pass through this gorgeous area just east of the junction of Highways 89 and 12. Wow! Beautiful! Anticipating what we would see in Bryce, we didn't stop to savor the beautiful formations right along the road here -- a mistake on our part. This is very much like what... More

This was a nice surprise we stumbled across while driving from Zion National Park to Bryce Canyon National Park. Here in the Dixie National Forest, about three-quarters of the way from Zion to Bryce, are these amazing red rock formations right along the road! There’s convenient roadside parking and you can be among towering hoodoo formations in just a few... More

On the way to Bryce Canyon NP on Hwt 12. All the attractions (rock formations) are visible from the road. There are Vista Points and access to the red rocks. There are short trails and you can see the rocks up close. Good Photo ops in March a combination of Re rocks, Green Trees,White snow and Grey-blue cloudy sky.

This place looks like a movie set! Easily accessed from the road, the trails here are worth the stop. For stunning vistas, a short, steep trail brings you to some amazing lookout points. This was a highlight on our trip, even after Zion and Bryce. Check it out!

As they approach the Bryce Canyon junction, they drive through a two mile section of road with Bryce Canyon-like red rock formations. Most visitors may make a short stop here,... More

We enjoyed our drive through the tunnels up through the Canyon on our way to Bryce National Park. The red landscape with mounds of snow, made our visit unique in the off season and we had the park almost to ourselves.

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.
