Bryce Canyon National Park General: 109 reviews and 124 photos
Favorite thing: All major roads, including hwy 12 and hwy 89, are plowed during the winter. Bryce Canyon Scenic Drive is also plowed, although access may be limited after a storm. In this two day winter visit, the road was only open to Sunrise and Bryce Points on the first day due to that weekend's snowstorm. On day two, the park service extended the road's opening to Aqua Canyon, but the remaining few miles of the road remained closed.
As much as I'll advocate seeing this park in the winter, keep in mind that portions of it may be closed due to snowstorms. That's the one downside to winter visiting. On the upside, certain trais and areas, such as Fairyland, are closed off in the winter and used for skiing and snowshoeing. Another upside is that park rangers often suspend the $20 entrance fee when weather conditions close portions of the road.
