Horse Trails: Red Canyon Recreation

It's not unusual for the visitor driving Scenic Byway 12, to think they have arrived in Bryce Canyon, as they view the red rock hoodoos towering around them.The Red Canyon recreation area allows ATV use, 4WD vehicles, cross country skiing, horseback riding and even dogs on select trails. If looking for a user friendly area to relax, camp and enjoy, then look no further than Southern Utah's Red Canyon or Cedar Mountain, both part of Dixie National Forest.
