Red Canyon also commonly referred to as “Little Bryce” offers one of the most exhilarating and fun cycling courses for visitors. It is a 5.5 mile bike trail that starts at the Thunder Mountain Trailhead and continues on to the Coyote Hollow Parking area. It travels the entire length of Red Canyon, and we are certain it is a ride the whole family can enjoy. My co-worker just visited Bryce a few weeks back and rode the trail and her exact words were “It was the most amazing 5 mile stretch down of my life”.
The start of the ride takes you from the parking lot at Thunder Mountain and quickly takes you down into the canyon where you will be surrounded by the famous Ponderosa Pines. This according to my co-worker is what made the ride so epic. “As you’re riding through the canyon and the Ponderosa’s surround you, there is a wonderful hinted smell of pine, it really just hit the spot and made the ride all the more enjoyable”. As you continue on through the ride you can see the Red Canyon Tunnels that the cars pass under as you ride by.
“You really want to get there at the right time during the spring when the flowers are at full bloom. There really isn’t anything quite like it”. According to Brittney, this is by far one of the most enjoyable trails to ride, and certainly something that every cyclist that visits Bryce should try.
