The road to Bryce Canyon National Park goes right through Red Canyon, giving eastbound travelers on UT-12 their first glimpse of hoodoos and red sandstone. Most people drive right on through the two sandstone tunnels and off to Bryce, or at most pull into a turnout for a quick photo. But Red Canyon and the adjacent Casto and Losee Canyons... More

The Red Canyon rocks were a deep red-orange and absolutely beautiful! Morning or afternoon, the sun creates different shadows and colors. Very spectacular.

It was nice to do a canyon that did not involve hairpin curves and high altitude yet had wonderful red rock. Nice introduction to Bryce Canyon. We didn't have time to get out and enjoy it--our bad.

Very beautiful drive through Red Canyon to get to Bryce from the west. We didn't have time to hike or horseback ride, but looked very tempting.

I knew I would love Bryce as soon as I drove through Red Canyon. Gorgeous rock formations that are very accessible… plenty of places to pull over and get out to take pics or explore the rocks. Would definitely like to go back and see what trails go through the area on my next trip and spend more time around... More

On your way to Bryce Canyon you will go through Red Canyon which is very colorful. Well worth spending sometime there.

We did a half day horseback trip into Red Canyon. The weather was great and the horses were in excellent shape. The surrounding geology was amazing.

This is as pretty as Bryce, but not so massive. Camping is available and area is very quiet and peaceful. And it is free.

A pleasant surprise on our way to Brice. Absolutely beautiful. We stopped at the visitors area and read some of the informative dialog about the plant/animal life in the canyon. The road is slightly twisty and in great shape. But the star of the show is the fantastic red cliffs, hoodoo's in stark contrast to the feathery green spruce. I... More
