Bryce Canyon National Park In May

Check out our Bryce Canyon Packing Lists!

May is a great time to enjoy outdoor Bryce Canyon activities. The mornings and evenings will be cool and the daytime temperatures won’t be too hot due to Bryce Canyon’s higher elevation.

Be sure to ask about the ranger-led programs at Bryce Canyon available during your stay. If you are traveling with kids you will want to grab Junior Ranger booklets as well.

The Bryce Canyon scenic drive in May  is a great way to enjoy the spectacular views and natural features of the park: hoodoos, natural arches, windows, etc.

Bryce Canyon’s elevations reach over 9,000 feet. Even a small amount of exertion may leave you feeling light-headed and nauseated. Remember, most Bryce Canyon hikes begin with a descent and end with a climb. Leave yourself enough energy for your return trip.

The best time to photograph the park is sunrise. Also take advantage of seeing the night sky at one of Utah’s International Dark Sky Parks.
