Where to go Biking
Rainbow Point (inside Bryce Canyon National Park)
The 17-mile long paved road to Rainbow Point is the only route within Bryce National Park which is open for bicycling. Bicycling between the elevations of 7,900 and 9,105 feet is a fairly strenuous activity in the rarified air and the route can be busy with cars and tour buses. All cyclists have to pay a $3 entrance fee and collect a list of rules from the visitor center.
Dave's Hollow (between Tropic Reservoir and Bryce NP)
Bicycling can be enjoyed at Dave's Hollow, a double-track trail connecting Tropic Reservoir with the entrance to the national park.
Casto Canyon is a spectacular ride through the Red Canyon area on single and double-track trails starting from Hwy 12.
An easy trail which parallels Hwy 12 from the Visitor Center is the Red Canyon Paved Bike Trail.
