Welcome to Red Canyon

Red Canyon is a little known gem located about 9 miles west of Bryce Canyon on Highway 12. Red Canyon is a forested area with sixty-million year old dark red rock castles protruding up from crimson sand.

 

You want the heart of the Old West, this is it. Butch Cassidy was raised nearby in a cabin in Circleville and it's rumored that when Cassidy was in nearby Panguitch at a dance he got himself into a brawl over a girl. Cassidy thought he killed the fellow and fled to the craggy land of Red Canyon is today, hiding the thusly named Butch Trail.
