Fantastic views

What a great place to ooh and ahh. We didn't have time to go to Bryce but this was just as good I would imagine.

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!

RED CANYON-THE OTHER BRYCE CANYON DIXIE NATIONAL FOREST, UTAH (UTAH’S HIDDEN BYWAYS XVII) Most visitors coming into the Bryce Canyon National Park use Utah SR12 from the junction of SR89. 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.

The rock formations are amazing and the area is quite a bonus on the route from Grand Staircase Escalante to Bryce and Zion. We were able to get some supplies in Tropic but there were no restaurants open until we reached Mount Carmel at the junction of the 89 and the 9 going to Zion so plan ahead in the... More

Red Canyon is a beautiful spot just a few miles west of the entrance to Bryce Canyon. The road going through also has two arches or tunnels you drive through. It's worth taking some photos and getting out a bit, but know that during the summer the red dirt sticks to everything and will bet in your car/etc.

This is not a big park, and it is full of red rock formations and red hoodoos, cliffs, and even a slot canyon. Not bad. It even has a nice visitor center with an interesting self guided tour. Its only problem is its proximity to Bryce Canyon NP, which is an amazing place. So if you get to red canyon... More
