The Red Canyon Bicycle Trail (a National Recreation Trail), running for more than 8 paved miles, is appropriately named. This must-do path travels through scenic red canyons in an area referred to as "Little Bryce," after the nearby Bryce Canyon National Park.

The trail offers a non-motorized alternative to the busy State Route (Scenic Byway) 12, both winding through the Red Canyon in Utah's Dixie National Forest to a high mountain plateau. Surrounding the trail are towering cliffs and scattered pine forest.

For a longer trek, trail-goers can connect with the rustic Thunder Mountain Trail on the path's western tip. Access to campgrounds is also available.
