The Red Canyon Bicycle Trail is a must-do paved path through scenic red canyons in an area referred to ‘Little Bryce’ after the national park Bryce Canyon. The trail winds through the Red Canyon in Utah’s Dixie National Forest to a high mountain plateau. Surrounded by mighty cliffs and scattered pine forest, the Red Canyon connects with the Thunder Mountain trail. With its remarkable swooping hills and valleys, there’s plenty of remarkable photo opportunities to along the way. Thunder Mountain features a rolling single track on the pink and orange cliffs of the Red Canyon, which is as fun to ride as it is visually impressive.


The Red Canyon Bicycle trail is paved. The Thunder Mountain trail is mostly smooth hard pack. The technical sections are short and walkable with the climbing mostly moderate, making this trail a manageable ride for most cyclists.


The tour is a total round-trip of about 32km (20mi), with an ascent of approximately 460m (1500ft) If you want to go for the extra kilometers, we can add-on singletrack trails in nearby Dixie National Forest. An extension along the stunning Cassidy Trail for instance, named for outlaw Butch Cassidy who was rumored to use this trail.
If you want to take it easy, you can hike through the Bryce Canyon National Park instead. We’ll be staying in the closest lodge to the park entrance.
