Secret Places

Around the bend or just a little further down the road is often where you’ll find the most unique attractions of the Bryce Canyon region. Here are just a few of our best-kept secrets.

Devils Garden

This natural rock play-land will make a kid out of any adult. Visitors to Devils Garden love to explore and, in some places, climb on these rocks. If you’re here in the early morning at late afternoons the long shadows and soft light make this an ideal place for incredible photographs.

Grosvenor Arch

Formations of this size, shape, and color, are rare and Grosvenor Arch is an easy stop for visitors who want to explore the back-country of the Bryce Canyon Region. The Cottonwood Canyon road connects Kodachrome Basin State Park and Highway 89 near Lake Powell. .

Pine Lake and Boulder Mountain

Boulder Mountain is another name for the massive Aquarius Plateau, and on the western face of this plateau is Pine Lake. Well-graded dirt roads make Pine Lake accessible by any vehicle (in good weather) and this is a scenic location for fishing, a picnic, or back-country explorers can continue up the mountain to find other lakes and viewpoints. Wildlife such as elk, deer, bears, mountain lions, bobcats, and eagles are found here, and for those looking for a taste of the mountainous American west, this lcoation is one of the best.
