If you cannot hike at this elevation, this overlook gives you at least 180 degrees of awesome views.

There are a few gorgeous lookout points, but Sunset point has beautiful hoodoos and good trails, such as Navajo Loop that start there. It's a good starting point to walk along the rim from Sunset to Sunrise Points too.

I ended up at sunset point at the end of my hike down into the canyon on the navajo loop. Just as with every other observation point in the park, the views here are amazing. I suggest driving to sunrise point, taking the trail down to the bottom, and back up to arrive at sunset point. Bryce and inspiration points... More

I have thought for years that Sunset and Sunrise points are way overhyped for viewing at those times of day. Inspiration point, or Bryce point, or even reversing sunset/sunrise for that time of day, are all preferred (by me) because the views are JUST as good and sometimes even BETTER ... and there aren't those crowds of other tourists who...

If you have time to spend only 5 min. In Bryce Canyon, spend it here. Wheelchair accessible and dogs are allowed at this point.

What you see from here is beyond description! Bryce Canyon is unique in every way. Just nothing else looks like it. Early or late light coming into the canyon just makes it glow and the shapes are just other worldly. One of our favorite places in the Park.

We loved, loved, loved Bryce Canyon. I lost count of the number of "wow" and "look at that" that we said. Each corner seemed to bring another view that needed to be marvelled at. We had been given some great advice from fellow guests at the Bryce Canyon Livery Bed and Breakfast that we were staying at in Tropic. They... More

We parked at Sunset Point and walked to Sunrise along the rim trail. This is easy hiking and you can get out a back quickly.

I have been told there are better vantages to look at the sunset, but this is where I looked, and I was enchanted.
