Bryce Canyon National Park is another example of fascinating scenery in southern Utah. It's tall rocky spires called Hoodoos are striped in colours of orange, pink, red and white. And, there are thousands of them standing at attention in each of the natural amphitheaters that you will encounter along the 18 mile scenic drive through the park.
Bryce Canyon is located just east of Panguitch in southern Utah on Scenic Byway 12. It is only 78 miles east of Zion NP, 260 miles south of Salt Lake City and 270 miles west of Moab.
Admission to the park is $20 per vehicle or you can use your National Parks Pass which costs $50 and is good for all National Parks in the USA and is good for one year.
There are 50 miles of hiking paths at Bryce, two campgrounds and horseback riding available. It is also a popular winter destination for cross country skiing and snow shoeing.
My visit to this National Park was stop number nine on our 16 day driving tour through the American Southwest. We only spent half a day here, due to the rainy weather. I think in a full day, you could see it all.
We began our trip in Las Vegas, where we picked up our rental car and then headed southeast and drove through Arizona and then north to Moab, Utah. From Moab, we headed southwest back towards Vegas, stopping at Bryce and Zion Canyons on the way.
It was a great trip with many memorable hikes through fascinating and diverse scenery.
Many people combine a trip to Bryce Canyon with a visit to Zion National Park. Zion Canyon is located only 78 miles... more travel advice
