Bryce Canyon National Park in southwest Utah has a high elevation - up to 9,115 feet, and heavy snow covers most trails for several months in winter, but the scenic drive and roadside overlooks stay open, and the park is popular all year. Much can be seen from the road, but better, close-up views are provided by various trails that descend from the rim, generally not too long or steep. The park is located far from major towns, but the little settlement of Bryce Canyon by the entrance provides all the usual visitor services.
