Contemplating Bryce Canyon

Overview of Bryce Canyon National Park

Situated along the eastern edge of one of North America's highest plateaus, Bryce Canyon National Park's otherworldly landscape is encountered at the intersection of deep geologic, ecological, and cultural stories. A basic understanding of its layout and significance can be a good place to begin when planning a visit here:

The main park road (Highway 63) is oriented north to south. The Visitor Center and entrance booths are a first stop, located near the northern boundary of the park. As you travel further south into the park, all viewpoints and points of interest are on the left (to the east). As you exit the park, travelling north, all viewpoints and points of interest are on the right.
