Driving from Panguitch to Bryce we happened upon Red Canyon. It stopped us in our tracks, wonderful sandstone cliffs and buttes, deep red in the sunshine. Cameras were out and photographs taken, and our guide book didn't even mention it.

I recently drove from Panguitch, Utah on my way to Bryce Canyon and about 10 miles outside of town is this beauty!! There is a tunnel you drive through, ample parking for photo's and trails!

We past through Red Canyon on our way to Bryce N/P. and were amazed by the red rock formations. There is a convenient pull-in on the right as you approach which gives you a chance to get some photos.

Senior citizens, we were unable to walk as much as we wished to at Bryce because of the elevation and steepness. We loved walking here and were able to get into the rocks and hoodoos on a pretty short and accessible trail. Great views and trail interpretation.

The Red Canyon area is part of Utah’s Scenic Highway 12. Next to one of the two tunnels is a pull-out with an exhibit about Butch Cassidy and another on how the tunnels were built. The Red Canyon Tunnels were officially opened on June 1, 1925. The intensity of color in Red Canyon depends on the amount of iron in... More

We loved this stretch of road on the scenic byway. We saw it in the snow several years ago, which was stunningly beautiful. This time, we saw it in the early morning under clear skies and the red rocks just glow! It was breathtakingly beautiful! Love this whole area!

Red Canyon is impressive by day with its colours changing throughout the day, but at night it is a great place to star gaze.

Red Canyon never cease to amaze me. This is just one beautiful area. There are many hiking or walking trails and the scenery is just fantastic. This is a great area for photographs and to picnic.
