The Amazing Hoodoos
This national park is famous for its red rock formations, which are called hoodoos. These geological splendors can be found scattered throughout the region from the Colorado Plateau to the Badlands—but they are most prominent and abundant in Bryce Canyon.
The word ‘hoodoo’ means bewitched and that is exactly what these red spires will do. With colorful hues ranging from auburn to ocra, these stunning natural formations will take your breath away. Every season showcases the hoodoos in a different light. Visit in the summer for warmer temperatures on the trails—or opt for a winter visit to see the spires covered in a layer of thick snow.

Simply grab a pair of good hiking shoes with lug traction and set out on the trail of your choice.
You can choose to see these views from a variety of alternative methods—such as by ATV, horseback, or helicopter for a slightly different perspective. An 18-hour scenic drive on Highway 63 is also an easy option to catch a glimpse of what Bryce Canyon has to offer.
