Consider Red Canyon an appetizer for Bryce Canyon. The four miles of scenery specialize in red/orange sandstone cliffs and sculpted rock formations accented with ponderosa pines. The elevation is 7,400 feet. It is the crimson gem of Dixie National Forest. Utah’s largest forest sprawls about 170 miles across the state and covers almost two million acres. Nearby are the equally inviting Losee Canyon and Casto Canyon. This road is also the start of Scenic Byway 12, a 122 mile drive through the geological beauty of Utah.
