By the visitor center for Red Canyon there is a nice trails area. There are nice red rock views as well as views of trees. Its a short drive from Bryce Canyon and worthy to visit if in the area.

Newer station with friendly rangers and staff. Get your park passport stamp here while you enjoy the close ups with a few hoodoos and driving through a couple arches along the way to Bryce Canyon. Small station with a few hikes so not 5 stars.

The desk workers took as much time as needed when I asked questions about hiking and biking in the area. Before I left for a particular hike, the volunteer handed me bird and plant identification brochures to make my hike more enjoyable.

The rangers are really helpful in describing the trails and helping you decide which will work. The views from the trails are stunning. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that signage lacked in some areas.
