Inside the Bryce Canyon National Park, in the narrow alleys formed by towering rocks on either side, grow one of the tallest trees of the Southwest – gigantic pines. Some of these trees measure more than 5 feet in diameter and grow to incredible heights of 150 feet, as they try to poke their way out above the surrounding cliffs.
Ponderosa Pines are almost everywhere at Bryce Canyon. Take any one of the numerous hiking trails throughout the National Park and you will almost inevitably encounter these trees. However, the most spectacular sights can be had at Ponderosa Canyon, so named because of the huge Ponderosa Pines that rise from the canyon floor.
