Welcome to Bryce Canyon National Park


The high altitude of Bryce, which hugs the eastern edge of an 18-mile plateau, sets it apart from southern Utah's other national parks. Repeated freezes and thaws have eroded the small park's soft sandstone and limestone into a landscape that's utterly unique: sandcastle-like pinnacles known as hoodoos, jutted fins, and huge amphitheaters filled with thousands of pastel daggers.

Dotted along the scenic drive that hugs the rim of the Paunsaugunt Plateau is a series of dramatic viewpoints from which to marvel at the powerful forces that forged this remarkable moonscape, while a series of trails descend through 1000ft amphitheaters into a maze of fragrant juniper and high-mountain desert.
