Explore The Canyon

Hiking in Bryce Canyon is one of the best ways to experience this unique national treasure!

Bryce Canyon offers several day-hiking trails. Because many of these are interconnected, our most popular hikes are combinations of two or more of these basic trails.

Bryce Canyon Weather


Adopt-a-Prairie Dog

Help preserve and protect Bryce Canyon National Park’s Utah Prairie Dog.

The Utah Prairie Dog has been federally listed under the Endangered Species Act since 1973 and is protected as a threatened species. Bryce Canyon National Park reintroduced the Utah Prairie Dog to park meadows from 1974 through 1988 and is the only National Park Service unit where they occur. Today, approximately 200 Utah Prairie Dogs are
found within several meadow complexes within the Park.

2023 Events
