Day 2- Explore Bryce Canyon- Saturday

Visit the Cowboy Buffet and Steak Room for the breakfast buffet or visit the Canyon Diner if you are looking for a quick breakfast option. Visit the Ruby’s Inn General Store and load up your water and snacks for a full day of hiking!

Take the Bryce Canyon Shuttle to Sunrise Point.

Here are our suggested hikes!

  • The Queen’s Garden Trail is a 1.8-mile trail that takes hikers along the bottom of the canyon providing up close access to the mysterious hoodoos found at Bryce. As the trail winds through the canyon, it meets up with the Navajo Loop. If hikers choose to continue on the new trail it will add an extra 1.3 miles to their adventure. Both trails are classified as moderate. Once the loop has been completed, a short walk along the Rim Trail will take hikers back to their vehicles.
  • The 8-mile Fairyland Loop Trail will take explores through a pink and cream colored wonderland worthy of “Alice.” The trail wonders past a forest of hoodoos speckled with the green of juniper trees and the ancient bristle cone pines trees. Sights along the trail include hoodoos with such names as the “Chinese Wall” and “Tower Bridge.” Once the trail has ended, there is a short walk along the Rim Trail back to the parking lot at the Fairyland Canyon Overview. This hike is classified as moderate, and as with all hiking adventures, be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks to keep from becoming dehydrated or too tired to complete the hike.

After a long day of hiking, taking a pizza to your room. Call the Canyon Diner from your room phone for delicious Freshly Baked Piccadilly Pizza for take-out.

 

Day 3- Explore Ruby’s Inn- Sunday

Start your day by taking a horse ride through the Dixie National Forest to the rim of Bryce Canyon. If you’re looking for a scenic tour of the Bryce Canyon area, our 1 ½ hour ride takes in the Dixie National Forest and the rim of Water Canyon Amphitheater, the first canyon in Bryce Canyon National Park. Leaving the rim, you climb Bristlecone Pine Ridge with standing 1500 year old Bristlecone Pines. (One of the oldest living things on the North American Continent.) From this ridge you will also see Boat Mesa and Sinking Ship Peak, some of the higher points in Fairyland Amphitheater. This is a 4 ½ mile loop. Rides start at 8:30AM and 10:30AM. Book your Ride Now!

If you are not comfortable on the back of a horse, book a guided ATV ride. Short, yet exciting experience, our one-half hour, one hour and sunset ATV rides wind through ponderosa pine forests to the rim of Bryce Canyon National Park. This guided tour will get your adrenaline pumping, but will also provide you with views of a pristine alpine landscape, Bryce Canyon Rim and fresh clean air. Book your ATV ride!

For lunch, pick up something quick inside the Ruby’s Inn General Store or get a delicious burger at Ruby’s Canyon Diner. For dessert, stop at Old Bryce Town for a scoop of ice cream.

 

If you are interested in a light hike, visit Mossey Cave! Located 3 miles east of Ruby’s Inn. Mossey Cave Trail is an easy 0.9 mile walk to a mysterious, watery oasis in this desert region. The trail offers a wonderful view of the canyon and ends at an alcove covered in moss created by the natural springs seeping through the sandstone. Let your kids play in the water to keep cool.

For dinner on your last night, visit Ebenezer’s Barn & Grill for a delicious chuck-wagon BBQ meal and live entertainment from our Bryce Canyon Wranglers.

Order your meals online before you get there to avoid long lines. Doors open at 7:00PM. Dinner starts at 7:30PM. Music starts at 8:00PM.

Enjoy your 3-day weekend with Ruby’s Inn.

Fire restrictions to be rescinded in southwest Utah

Fire restrictions to be rescinded in southwest Utah

Fire managers urge caution as wildfire danger still exists

 

CEDAR CITY – Color Country Interagency Fire Managers are rescinding fire restrictions on unincorporated private lands, state lands, and federally administered public lands in southwest Utah.  After receiving recent precipitation, long-range weather forecasts are calling for improved wildfire danger conditions.  The restrictions will be rescinded starting on Monday, August 20 at 00:01 a.m. on all lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Color Country District, USDA Forest Service Dixie National Forest, National Park Service jurisdictions including Cedar Breaks and Pipe Spring National Monuments, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks, and  Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Bureau of Indian Affairs Southern Paiute Agency, and unincorporated state and private lands in Washington, Iron, Beaver, Kane, and Garfield counties.

 

“Regardless of fire restriction status, permits for any debris burning are always required and strictly enforced,” said Mike Melton, Fire Management Officer for the Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Lands.

 

“The fall season can produce cold nights and very warm, dry and windy days.  Unwanted human caused wildfires can still occur under these conditions and cause wildfire challenges,” said Tooter Burdick, Fire Management Officer for the Bureau of Land Management.

 

While fire restrictions have been lifted in these areas, wildfire is always a risk.  Visitors are encouraged to use appropriate methods to contain fires, build them in areas free of vegetation, and to be certain that fires are completely extinguished after use.  Fire officials also caution against possessing, using, igniting, or detonating fireworks and exploding targets on federally administered public lands as these acts are always prohibited, even when fire restrictions are not in effect.
