It is hard to be,I'd've that such a place exits - sheer beauty! An amazing, colourful and majestic place with a great view from the top of the viewpoints. We were there in the rain that made the stones even more colourful! Apparently winter is also effective in enhancing the red shimmer of these,limestone rocks. This is the best place... More

The first stop on the Red Loop and it is spectacular. It offers photo ops of some amazing formations as well as access to a number of hiking trails. A definite must if you are visiting the park.

This is a great area and Sunrise and Sunset are right next to each other at the top of the canyon. Keep in mind when you think of sunset point you would see the sunset but you are facing the east and it is how the sunset shines on the hoodoos in the canyon that you are there to see.... More

Loved this little bit of Bryce Canyon. Went by car and stopped at each point starting from Rainbow point. This bit and the canyon slot were both highlights of my day. Make sure you get good hiking shoes (i got mine for about 40-60 euros). The sand can be slippery and with that trail kinda dangerous, but i promise you,... More

If you are looking for a specific formation without having to hike down to the canyon, Sunset Point is a good starting point for you. You can spot Thor's Hammer and the top of Wall Street from the vantage point. These are exciting photo ops, and it's fun to sweep the canyon to find the formation you are looking for... More

This is the starting point of the Navajo Trail. It has beautiful vistas along the rim of the Bryce amphitheater. This place can get very crowded during peak season.
