Located near Bryce Canyon National Park, the area shares some similar geological similarities. The area is painted with unique rock formations and Ponderosa Pines. Many trails for hiking, backpacking, cycling, and horseback riding exist for optimum exploration of the canyon. A new visitor center and scenic byway information kiosk provide travellers with all the information about Red Canyon that is needed to enjoy their beautiful surroundings.
