2022 TripAdvisor AwardTraverse through ponderosa pine forest along the canyon rim and look down over hundreds of whimsical rock towers known as ‘hoodoos’. As you descend the trail into the canyon, the hoodoos now loom above you as their orange bodies appear to shape-shift just as clouds do when you allow your imagination to wander. Bryce Canyon National Park is often described by our guests as “alien” and “otherworldly”.

As the highest-elevation park in Utah, we often find Bryce Canyon to be a cool reprieve from the heat of other parks on our Utah Mighty Five tour. If you’d like an even more in-depth experience of the park, check out our Zion + Bryce Explored itinerary.

More Information about Bryce Canyon


Bryce Canyon National Park is a true natural wonder located in southwestern Utah. It is known for its beautiful red rock spires, called hoodoos, breathtaking views and large ponderosa pines.

The park was named after Ebenezer Bryce, a Mormon settler who lived in the area in the 1870s. Bryce described the canyon as “a helluva place to lose a cow,” which eventually led to the area being called Bryce’s Canyon. It was eventually established as a national park in 1928. Before European settlers arrived in the area, Bryce Canyon was home to several Native American tribes, including the Paiute and Anasazi. The Paiute tribe has a strong presence in the region and still holds annual tribal gatherings at the park.

Bryce Wildlife

The geology of Bryce Canyon is a big part of what makes it so unique. The hoodoos were formed over millions of years as water and ice eroded the soft sedimentary rock. The park is also home to a variety of other rock formations, including cliffs, fins, and natural bridges. The park is located in a high-elevation desert region, which means that it has very dry and hot summers and cold winters. Despite the dry climate, there is a wide variety of plant life at Bryce Canyon, including pinyon pine trees, juniper trees, and a variety of cactus and wildflowers.

Bryce Canyon is home to a variety of wildlife, including mule deer, elk, pronghorn (Pictured above) and occasionally bighorn sheep. It is also a popular spot for birdwatching, with over 150 species of birds having been spotted in the park. Bryce Canyon National Park is a stunning natural wonder with a rich history and diverse geology, flora, and fauna. It is a must-visit destination for anyone visiting the State of Utah.
