If you love the hoodoos at nearby Bryce Canyon, but don't feel like hiking down into the canyon to see them, stop at Red Canyon. The trails around the visitor center are easy and provide great views. There are also longer hikes to try in...More
We left Bryce and had a wonderful time viewing these new red formations of rocks as we traveled to Zion National Park. The Redness of these peaks and valleys were a nice contrast to what we had seen in Bryce. A nice experience while we...More
This Canyon is absolutely beautiful! It is on the drive to Bryce Canyon National Park. It has some of the same beautiful rock formations as Bryce. It has unique drive-through tunnels.
Unfortunately, it is greatly overshadowed by Bryce Canyon. It is definitely worth a stop...More
Driving from Interstate I-15 through Panguich and at the Red Canyon on highway 12, you drive through 2 tunnels on your way to Bryce Canyon National Park. Most people just drive through the Red Canyon area, but there is actually some nice scenery there in...More
A drive or hike in this beautiful red rock canyon is a treat! The rocks are so brilliantly red, redder than Bryce Canyon. It is on the road to Bryce Canyon. Skip the visitor's center...nothing there really except a gift shop. But do take a...More
Aptly named geographical feature that is full of wonderful rock formations including two over road bridges with a clearance of less than.14 feet. We have driven up and down the canyon edge and you can see plenty from the highway. As the light changes so...More
Came here because we drove through the area a few times while visiting Bryce Canyon NP. Stopped at the visitor’s center which has some decent interpretive presentation materials, lots of old photos, maps and information on the area. They have a nice gift store, too....More
I am going to lead a small group (currently 6) of low-budget tourists. The morning of Sept 1 we will leave Las Vegas to visit Zion, perhaps see Red Canyon (I know it is between Zion and Bryce but have not been able to locate it on the map) and Bryce. Next day it's Antelope Canyon and a first taste of the Grand Canyon. I'm pondering whether it's best to stay the night near Bryce (Panguitch or Tropic) or go on to Page. The groups that did this trip before could not stop at all in Zion due...More

It sounds like you have a lot to see in two days. The best approach would probably be to see Zion on one day and then Bryce and Antelope Slot Canyon the following day. I think it's too much to see both Zion and Bryce in one day to really appreciate anything. In that case, it may make more sense to stay somewhere nearish to Bryce (although Zion and Bryce are only a couple of hours apart). However, this doesn't factor in the Grand Canyon. Which bit of the Grand Canyon (North or South Rim)...More
Valley of Fire State Park vs Red Canyon National Park (5 Replies)
I would like to visit one of the Park for hiking with my family. Can somebody help me with this?

Red Rock if you are looking for more "real" hiking. Valley of fire has some hiking trails but they are short 1 -3 miles hikes..
Ruby's Trail Rides (4 Replies)
Has anyone taken one of the trail rides from Ruby's? I'm told that these rides are in Red Canyon just outside of Bryce, so I'm wondering if the ride is as good as in the park. We need a trail ride without the 220 pound limit.

My husband and I visited Bryce a few years ago and took the Red Canyon ride. I've never taken the ride in the park so I can't compare it, but we did really enjoy the ride through the red canyon. It was at the end of April and it must have been a quiet time because it was only my husband and I and the trail guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the scenery was beautiful. Enjoy your trip!
