Right on the way yo Bryce Canyon.

Rock formations are right on the main highway and easily accessible. We drove thru going to Bryce Canyon and the beauty is equal to The Bryce Canyon National Park.

This is a beautiful place with a great little visitors center. They have cool stamps if you have a national park passport.

On the way to Bryce National Park from Zion National Park you drive right through Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest. The road from Zion to Bryce is one of the most scenic in America. Make sure that you have your camera ready. Just keep in mind that the rock formations are difficult to climb.

Stopped by the visitor's center. Great help with maps and local trails. Came back after our trip through Bryce Canyon. Walked the "Hoodoo Trail", let us get up close and personal, walked to base and took pictures, climbed up some too! Beautiful scenery of hoodoos along road and the two arches you drive through on Rte 12.

The visitor center is primarily staffed by volunteers and they are amazingly friendly, helpful and well-informed. They gave us advice on hikes in Bryce Canyon and what time of day the light was best for photography in a couple of different places. They also gave great advice on where to eat! Very patient with visitors who were occasionally impatient. Just... More

This in on the way to Bryce Canyon, and it's a good thing that Bryce is spectacular, because it takes a lot to match the beauty of Red Canyon. There is a new visitor center that's gorgeous. The red rocks are, as always, breathtakingly beautiful. This area is part of Dixie National Forest, and a must see. One of the... More

Red Canyon was perfect for our family visit with a toddler. Nice easy hike 'Hoodoo Trail' was about 30 min with lots of photo opportunities and areas for the bigger kids to climb a little higher. The visitor center staff were very nice and helpful. We ate lunch in the nice shaded picnic area before proceeding to Mossy Cave (don't... More

We drove through Red Canyon on the way to Bryce. On the way back, we parked and hiked an easy one mile loop. It was great. We were all by ourselves amid the red rocks. Very cool.

Phenomenal beauty. I visited this place with my wife for a day trip. It was well worth the 3 ½ hour drive. Some of the reddest rocks I've ever seen. Situated between Cedar Breaks National Monument and Bryce Canyon National Park. It's a no brainer.

Friendly workers at the visitors center. Beautiful scenery, clean facilities. Plan a full day to have time for the hikes. HWY 12 is a great drive.
