Garfield County is remote and sparsely populated. Most of its expanse is wild and untouched. However, Garfield County is also easy to reach, whether by air or car, and shuttle and rental services are often available.


Highway 89 runs through the western end of Garfield County and passes through Hatch and Panguitch. I-15 is just a little west of the county. From Highway 89, Route 12 winds through much of Garfield County, including Bryce Canyon, Tropic, Escalante and Capitol Reef.


The Bryce Canyon Airport is situated near both Bryce Canyon National Park and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Shuttle and rental car service are readily available at and near the airport. This is a small airport, mostly meant to receive small aircraft as opposed to commercial airlines.

The Cedar City Regional Airport is about sixty miles from Bryce Canyon and commercial flights to and from Salt Lake City and Las Vegas arrive and depart daily.
