Bryce Canyon National Park Map

NPSBryce Cyn NP

Super scenic red topped highways of Utah pass through this spectacular park. A high elevation (8000′ elev) forest w/ farmlands and small towns below.

Most visitors see this National Park in route to another, because they are just driving through (and not wanting to hike much). Lots of viewpoints and parking lots, picnic tables and steep switchback hiking trails.

campCamping here requires advanced reservations w/ the National Park Service – and a few more blankets. Chilly temperatures and tall pines on this popular mountain rim.

Bryce Canyon National Park

This park is open 24 hours per day throughout the year.

Snow closes park roads – there may be temporary road closures when winter snow storms hit. Roads will stay closed until plowing is completed and conditions are safe for visitor traffic. Road maintenance may require brief closures of individual areas at other times. Landslides close hiking trails and dirt back roads nearby.

The visitors center is well worth a stop.
