Bryce Canyon

Colorful pinnacles, spires, fins and water-carved walls greet the visitor to Bryce Canyon National Park, which began as Utah National Park in 1924 and was renamed in 1928.

Erosion on the edge of Paunsaugunt Plateau formed the canyon and strange yet beautiful formations were created. Nowhere else is the effect of erosion more startlingly apparent than Bryce Canyon.

While Zion National Park is experienced from the bottom up, at Bryce, you are the top looking down into a basin of strange shapes and forms with names such as Alley Oop and Dinny, Thor's Hammer and Queen Victoria.

Nearly 50 miles of trail invite a longer hike or an overnight backpack.Bryce Canyon Thirteen overlooks provide an opportunity to stretch your legs and snap some photos. Horseback rides and ranger lead walks, talks and campfire programs are available throughout the summer. In the winter, activities include cross-country skiing. Bryce is cool even in the summer because of its higher elevation; however, as you hike the trails into the canyon below, bring water and wear long sleeves to avoid dehydration and sunburn.

Accommodations are available at Bryce Canyon Lodge and park campgrounds from late spring through early fall.
