Bryce Canyon National Park is as unique in its own way as its neighbor, the Grand Canyon. At Bryce it's all about the "hoodoos", thousands of spires carved out of the red rock by millions of years of erosion. Bryce Canyon was designated a national park in 1928, an obvious choice and just one of the spectacular collection of parks in southern Utah and northern Arizona.
Bryce Canyon is 250 miles northeast of Las Vegas and 270 miles south of Salt Lake City - it's truly a "remote" location. There are multiple viewing points at the top of canyon that are easily accessible by car and a short walk. A trail runs along the rim of the canyon and there are longer trails down into the canyon for overnight hikes.
The historic Bryce Canyon Lodge and a handful of adjacent cabins are inside the park. Additional accommodations are available in the nearby towns of Tropic and Panguitch.
