Top 200 Places: Forget Bryce – Visit Red Canyon Park

Red Canyon Park
P. O. Box 80/H 12
Utah 84759

The beautiful Red Canyon Park can serve as a dog-friendly substitute to see the rock formations that make Bryce Canyon famous. Dogs are not allowed on any trails at Bryce Canyon but are allowed on leash throughout Red Canyon Park. The park sits at a 7,400 foot altitude in a Ponderosa Pine setting surrounded by striking red and pink Limestone formations that rival those of the National Park. There are a variety of extensive trail systems for multi-use, many scenic overlooks (one allows visitors to see 3 different states), and a visitor’s center. Dogs of all sizes are allowed for no additional fee. Dogs must be well behaved, leashed, and cleaned up after at all times. Dogs are allowed throughout the park and on the trails by the park. They are not allowed in park buildings, or on the trails leading into the nearby Bryce Canyon National Park.
