Weather in Bryce Canyon National Park

Perched at over 8,000 ft in elevation, Bryce towers above the surrounding canyon-laden countryside. Characterized by a notable variance in weather conditions, it is wise to wear layers that can be changed to suit the temperature extremes. Hats and skin protection are recommended year-round, as high-altitude sun, and unforeseen wind or precipitation can materialize any day of the year. Be sure to double-check the area’s forecast as your adventure draws near.

Spring and Fall tend to be pleasant, with daytime highs in the 50’s and 60’s, and evening lows around or below freezing. Summer high temperatures peak around 80 degrees, with evenings in the upper 40’s. Winter days might barely climb above freezing, and nights can drop to near or below zero. March is historically the snowiest month, but winter storms might frequent the plateau from October through April. Afternoon thunderstorms tend to arise in mid- to late summer.

Amazing Adventure

5 months ago

Wildland provided an amazing adventure. Exploring Bryce Canton in the snow was incredible, and Sam Cooke was an exceptional guide. I cannot wait until my next trek with Wildland!

Adventure of a Lifetime

9 months ago

Our experience with Wildland was outstanding from start to finish. Our guide, Wally Brandt, was superior. He made our day at Bryce the very favorite part of our 9 day trip through the Utah National Parks. My husband and I are both 73, and our hiking capabilities are "limited" to say the least! But Wally hung with us and gave us the adventure of a lifetime. We will never ever forget him or could thank him enough.

A Day We Will Not Forget

9 months ago

Brittany Dane was our guide for the full-day hike we scheduled with Wildland Trekking. She is delightful and full of knowledge about the Bryce Canyon; and is so engaging that we had wonderful conversations while hiking the Fairyland Trail Loop. She made sure to make us feel comfortable, before and during the hike. Our lunch was delicious and she found just the right spot for us in the shade. We are so happy that we chose Wildland Trekking and were placed in Brittany's care. Do not hesitate to ask for Brittany Dane as she is a seasoned veteran of hiking and you will not be disappointed. Thank you for an amazing experience amongst the Hoodoos. We will not forget it.
