Great drive on way to Bryce

Easy drive through on way to Bryce Canyon - brilliant colours and great scenery - is a information centre but we didn't use it - plenty of stop offs to take great pics

We passed through Red Canyon twice during our stay in Southern Utah. While we did not take side trips as we went through, we noted that there is a visitor center and spectacular places to hike and see the scenery.

The Red Canyon is part of the Dixie National Forest, and winds along Scenic Byway 12 for about 4 miles and is located about twelve miles west of Bryce Canyon National Park. It is also located about 10 miles southeast of Panguitch, UT. If you drive from Zion National Park to Bryce Canyon National Park you will drive directly through... More

I passed this attraction on my way to Grand-Staircase/Bryce Canyon from Zion. I am so glad I stopped to admire the natural beauty of this amazing landscape. There's an easy place to park and a few trails to choose from. There is no visitor center, entry fee or information, just incredible sites. It's definitely worth it to go up the... More

If you are traveling to Bryce Canyon National Park, spend some amazing time walking among the hoodoos and hiking up the canyon. This is a great place for pictures, hiking and getting some quiet time. Not too crowded and just amazing. The visitors center is very informative and the folks there are really helpful. They gave us some places to... More

There is a very nice, paved cycling and walking trail located on the South side of the road that goes all the way through the canyon. Work is being done to extend the trail to Bryce Canyon. At the moment it's probably about 8-9 (maybe a little more) miles one way. My husband and I drove with our bikes to... More

Unlike magnificent Bryce Canyon which you have to look down into from overlooks, this Red Canyon area is beautiful and you can be 'in' and enjoy it up close.

We had never heard of the Red Canyon and were wonderfully surprised when we happened upon it on our trip. Red Canyon isn't overly big, but what it lacks in size compared to the other parks, it makes up for in beauty. It was a great place to pull over and simply enjoy the best of nature. We stopped at...

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
