We took a side trip to Bryce Canyon national park and were so glad we did! There was snow on the rocks which added to the views. We got to enjoy sunset with absolutely spectacular color. Don't pass up this park!

Red Canyon is such a beautiful area of southern Utah. Rock formations in varying shapes and sizes, rich red colors, covered with a dusting of snow when we were there. Beautiful!

I've visited Panguitch since I was a child, and the drive through Red Canyon on to Bryce is always a highlight. I like to stop and hike a little, climb up the colorful hillsides for a better view. Although not used this trip, The campground is a great place to camp and the bike trail all the way to Bryce... More

Less famous than Bryce, and far smaller in scope, this stop will capture you, and be worth every second. Photo-friendly, good for a quick stop or a leisurely linger. Or you can go for a hike, which I strongly recommend. You can walk for as little as 10-15 minutes or closer to an hour, depending on which route you take,... More

Just up the road from the famous Bryce Canyon, which is famous for its hoodoos of yellow, orange and red, is the smaller but no less beautiful, Red Canyon. Red Canyon, as the name implies, is known for its brilliant red sandstone landcape, canyon, and hoodoos. Under the bright sunlight, the red is intense. Hard to take a bad photo... More

I love this area, and right next to Bryce Canyon and so many other beautiful parks. I would however be prepared for a rude greeting at the national forest visitor center. Maybe it was just a bad day, but the ranger was extremely snotty and rude when I asked about dispersed camping in the area. He said he wouldn't recommend... More

As you come in highway 12 off rt 89, you are in for a treat. The vivid color and scenery is outstanding. The pull offs are great for taking in the views. The 2 mini tunnels are another feature. The visitor center offers good info and a nice starting point for some short hiking. Don't forget to travel east and... More

Traveling with a dog we could only visit National Parks from our car so we were grateful to find state parks that were so pet friendly. They have a nice visitor center with good exhibits on natural and cultural history. I have to say that the staff did not seem terribly attentive or well trained. They did not seem to... More

Red Canyon is small, part of the national forest. A small visitors center has plenty of info about this area and also the pioneer history when ladies put their quilts on the icy road so wagons could go for winter supplies. There's only one short scenic hike, but worth doing if you have the time

just stop by the road and dive in! easy trails well pointed, incredible views, excellent for beginners. to chill out after a long hiking day is perfect. at the valley, a small forest with fairy trees, and colorful rocks. the sunset here is great because the tons of the yellow and gold that paint the rocks
