Tropic is a small ranching community in southwestern Utah that lies just outside of the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park. Tropic is rich in pioneer heritage. By 1874, a few pioneers had heard of the Paria Valley from Native Americans. There seemed to be a favorable climate, grazing and farming land, and timber and coal. After settling near the Paria River, several communities sprang up. Only Tropic, founded in 1892, and two other villages remain, now known as the Bryce Valley communities. Ask a local Bed and Breakfast innkeeper for more information on the area's history.
Bryce Valley is bordered by the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument and the Dixie National Forest. Tropic is also a main stop along the Scenic Byway 12. This All American road crosses part of Dixie National Forest, then extends over the Escalante River and up to the Capitol Reef National Park. This highway provides a unique view of Utah's amazing back-country. Views from Tropic include that of Powell Point (10,188 feet) to the north, and the back side of Bryce Canyon to the south.
Visitors can find great information on Bryce Canyon and nearby, Red Canyon and Kodachrome Basin State Parks.
B&B innkeepers can provide tips on visiting Tropic's variety of gift shops, restaurants, town festivals and other services. And opportunities for camping, hiking, horse, ATV, and jeep tours are readily available.
