Highlight: East Fork of the Sevier River Scenic Backway (Forest Service Road 087)
Situated near Bryce Canyon City, the East Fork of the Sevier River Scenic Backway stretches south for 17 miles along the edge of Bryce Canyon National Park before arriving at Tropic Reservoir, a great place on hot days that offers trout fishing, a boat ramp, picnicking, and camping. In addition, the road connects you to several other four-wheel drive roads and possible routes. A great place for horseback riding, snowmobiling, ATV/UTV activities, and plenty of Ponderosa Pine and Aspen viewing. This area lets you witness the off the beaten path hoodoos and pinkish colored rocks that Bryce Canyon National Park is known for.
