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.

Arrived at Sunset Point a half hour before sunrise. It was uncrowded and I was joined by others hoping to see a stellar sunrise and we were not disappointed!

Large enough place for everyone to have a nice spot for the photo shoots, you'll have 360 degree open space for great shots.

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

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.
