Powell Ranger District

Area Status: Open

The Powell Ranger District encompasses nearly 400,000 acres of high plateau county, with distinctive vegetation and geological features. The Red Canyon area of the district offers many unique hiking experiences with spectacular views. The pink limestone Claon formations that characterize nearby Bryce Canyon National Park form the hoodoos and canyons here, giving it the nickname "Little Bryce". Most trailheads in the area are easily accessible from Utah Highway 12, a Scenic byway and All American Road.  

We invite you to come and recreate on the Powell Ranger District area! There is great hunting, fishing, OHV, boating and hiking opportunities. Come and visit and explore!
