Recreation Areas In Parowan Canyon

Parowan Canyon is also a gateway into our scenic mountains. From Parowan, take U-14, Center Street, heading east into the mountains Five Miles up Parowan Canyon is Vermillion Castle Picnic and Campground area.  The area was named for it’s bright red castle-like cliff formation.  Local residents refer to it as “Five Mile”.  From Vermillion Castle the road leads to the popular Yankee Meadow Reservoir, well known for its excellent trout fishing and camping area.

Continue traveling east and before long (14 mile marker) you’ll arrive at Brian Head Ski Resort.  This mini town, developed in the mid 1960’s, is tucked away in the high mountains above the red rock canyons of southern Utah.

Brian Head, Utah’s highest ski resort, averages 425 inches of perfect Utah powder each season, plus enjoys more sunny days than any other resort in the state.
