Activities & Features


The Rim Trail in Bryce Canyon is a difficult hike in southern Utah that features amazing wildlife and canyon scenery. This trail offers hikers amazing vistas of hoodoos and the canyon. This trail can be accessed from several points, lending itself to shorter hikes if you have young children or the elderly with you. Make sure to catch the view from Inspiration Point, it lives up to its name. The portion between Sunset and Sunrise Points is wheelchair accessible. Bryce Canyon National Park has two campgrounds, Sunset and North Campgrounds.


Mormon Pioneers settled Bryce Canyon in the early 1850’s. The park is named after Ebenezer Bryce who homesteaded in the area in the 1870's.
