Canyon 2 Canyon Trail

This trail is paved for the entire length and starts at the west entrance of Red Canyon. It runs for more than 6 miles past towering hoodoos and stunning red rock formations along Scenic Highway 12.

At the top of the canyon, a rest area provides restrooms and a large parking area for a break if needed. This is also where the popular Thunder Mountain Trail connects to Highway 12.

The Canyon 2 Canyon trail then continues on eastward for another 14 miles, crossing the Paunsaugunt Plateau and then turns south on Highway 63. It continues on through Bryce Canyon City and Ruby’s Inn, connecting to the new Bryce Canyon Multi-Use path.

If you are looking for an alternate option for the uphill climb, bikes are allowed on the Bryce Canyon Shuttle.

The Sinclair Station in Bryce Canyon City offers bike rentals for those who need them.
