Words truly do not describe the views you will encounter in Bryce Canyon National Park. Overlook this land of “hoodoos”, or pillars of rock, that fill the canyon and ignite your imagination. Stop at the many viewpoints to get the best shot, or go on a hike to experience the magnitude of this amazing place.
What You Need to Know
Bryce Canyon National Park is located in Utah’s high desert, making the temperatures a little colder at night and during the shoulder seasons than you may have been expecting. Days can still get very hot, so be sure to hike with plenty of water.
This Park is relatively small, but it has some incredible trails and viewpoints. During the summer, there is one parking spot for every four cars that enter the park, often making the popular spots hard to get into with your car. Consider taking the free park shuttle to minimize crowding and congestion, and to ensure that you will be able to stop and see everything on your list of things to do.
