A fantasy world of towering stone spires and balanced rock formations known as hoodoos, in shades of orange, gold, cream, and pink, greet visitors who make the journey up to Bryce Canyon National Park. From the lookouts along the canyon rim, you can peer out over the bowl of hoodoos into an almost surreal landscape. The most striking views are from Sunset and Sunrise Points, along the Rim Trail. To get a different perspective, take a walk along one of the hiking trails that carve through the canyon and meander around the base of these giant spires and oddly-shaped stone formations. The park, set at an elevation of between 8,000 and 9,000 feet, is also home to a number of ancient bristlecone pines, a less common site in this part of Utah.
Overlook with sweeping canyon views & russet rock hoodoo formations; popular at sunrise & sunset.
The most visited and one of the easiest areas to access inside the park, the Bryce Amphitheater features picturesque cliffs & rock formations.
The highest point (9100') inside Bryce Canyon National Park, Rainbow Point contains unique red and pink rock formations.
Fairyland Loop Trail begins at Fairyland Point and takes experienced hikers through spectacular hoodoos and scenery along the rim and into the canyon.
Mossy Cave isn’t actually a cave at all, it is a grotto that is constantly wet and dripping, even forming ice in the winter months.
This arch, sculpted from red rock (rich in iron oxide minerals), poses a stark contrast to the dark green of the Ponderosa forest that peeks through the arch.
