Bryce Canyon National Park Facts

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in South Central Utah and covers over 140 square miles of stunning country.


Bryce Canyon is home to the largest collection of hoodoos in the world.  This type of rock formation is a column of weathered and unusually shaped rocks.

The hoodoos located inside Bryce Canyon National Park are in a Claron Formation that comprises four different rock types: limestone, dolomite, siltstone, and mudstone.

Bryce Canyon is the national park's name, but it was not formed from erosion initiated from a central stream of water, meaning it is not technically a canyon.

Bryce Canyon is Not a Canyon

A famous natural rock formation known as, "Thor's Hammer", is located inside Bryce Canyon National Park. It can be found at Sunrise Point.
