An extremely short walk that is great for stretching legs at the red canyon visitors center.

Nice little trail to get away from the crowds. You can make it into a loop. Rather than turning around at the end (marked by a sodden trail sign), turn right and walking through the wash back to a well impacted and obvious trail. Total was about 2.5 mile loop.

Great warm up hike. I would bring my kids here to do this nice, easy hike with great views. No ‘summit’.

This trail is short and nice. It’s a little hard to stay on the trail sometimes because the gravel blends in with all the other gravel. Parking is at the scenic turnout just west of the Red Canyon Visitor Center.

An intro hike to Red Canyon doable by most but offers some nice hoodoos.

Pretty easy hike through some shorter hoodoos. Had our kids with us and we enjoyed hiking up through the hoodoos on the way back. These are very nice, but if you dont have as much time - go over to Bryce Canyon because they are larger and a lot more to see

Easy walk through hoodoos. Many use trails along the trail that climb up to the Hoodoo's
