Good parking, lots of tour bus parking, restrooms, drinking water refill stations, and just a good place to begin an adventure. It overlooks the sprawling amphitheater (very few hoodoo formations here) and it's a good place to see Thor's Hammer fairly up close. Our Southwest Adventure Tours tour guide led us down the loop trail from this location. It is... More

This isn't really a great spot for sunset (not sure why the called it that) but it was still a great viewing spot for the canyon.

you can really get a great other worldly vantage from the bottom of the Hoodoos and hiking down wall street and the entire Hoodoo loop is worth it!

Lucky for us, Nancy at the lodge gave us the tip that you watch the sun rise from sunset point and vice versa. While everyone was at sunrise point crowded together, there were just a few of us at sunset point to greet the day, the splash of colors against the awakening hoo doos was incredible. The ravens were also... More

We visited Bryce Canyon in April of 2014, and it was amazing. I was a bit hesitate to go since we went with 2 young kids (3,and 5). But it was a fun great experience for all. We even hiked all the way down the canyon all the way down to queens garden. Highly reconended.

The Hoohoo's here and the view from this point is beautiful. If you started at the far end of the canyon, by the time you get to Sunset point you begin to get immune to the beauty that surrounds you. Stop and enjoy the scenery.... don't take it for granted.

Must see for all travelers. Easy access for all. Drive to all viewpoints for family adventure . . . then at the main park/lodge go hiking down in the canyon. These viewpoints are for easy viewing, no hiking required.

Lots of parking available, a very easy walk to the viewing areas, and numerous places along the rim trail to enjoy the natural beauty of the "hoodoo" formations of Bryce Canyon. Spend a good amount of time at Sunset Point in order to fully enjoy the splendor of this natural phenomenon. You'll see something new each time you look, and... More

If you are visiting Bryce, go here for a hike in the canyon. This is the starting point for the Navajo Loop Trail and the location of Wall Street, as well as a nice viewpoint.
