Red Canyon, Utah – September 2022 – Arches Trail

Just west of Bryce is an area known as Red Canyon. Managed by the Forest Service, Red Canyon has a number of trails that take the hiker for scenic views. We chose to take the Arches Trail.

From this vantage point you could see further west across the Servier River valley.

Much like Willis Creek Slot Canyon since it is not a National Park there are no crowds. On our mile hike we saw 2 other people.

The trail is named for the 15 small to medium arches scattered throughout.

The hike has a vertical rise of almost 200′ on it’s stated 0.6 mile route. We ended up going a bit longer wander off on side trails.

Red Canyon make an excellent side trip if time permits in the Bryce/Zion National Parks area.
