It looks Needles-y to me, but I've never actually been there so don't have a more specific guess.
It's in the Needles, correct @Udink ! Any trail name guess? Here are 2 more photos of the trail:

81179


The trail has many slick rock benches and some exposed sections with steep drop offs, like here.

Sorry folks... I went backpacking and forgot to get it done ahead of time. Give me a couple hours to search.

Warm! Though the photo color is accurate for the location an dtime of day, I would say it is not necessarily indicative of the greater canyon.

I wish I were well informed enough to make that kind of analysis. Haha. I would not be able to determine a location based on shadows, season, time of day.

Cedar Mesa-y indeed
The canyon looks reddish.... so I kept looking for a well watered canyon on the east side of of road 261. Is it east of rd 261?
(Your photo doesn't look like Fish and Owl creek canyons and I have only been to McCloud Canyon). But Fish Creek canyon looks well watered :)

I was working with a few more photos, as I first searched @John Morrow 's Flickr photo album with several different Bears Ears day hikes.
Hope we can visit some more canyons on our next trip, as we have only seen McCloud Canyon.

A fall photo and we are headed back to what trailhead?

Still not too sure, but it looks more like Capitol Reef with the addition of the second picture. Is it Pleasant Creek?

Oh wait. Maybe it's the Calf Creek Falls trailhead. I'm really not too sure. Haha. I won't lodge any more guesses though for the sake of fairness.
