One of the busiest spots in Bryce Canyon, but well worth waiting for parking. The views are spectacular. If you want to see the sunset be sure to get there well before the actual sunset time as you are looking east and not at the setting sun.

We took the rim walk whilst some of our party did the Navajo loop walk. Beautiful views at this point and worth the short walk to get there

Whilst it may be busy there is plenty of room at Sunset Point to watch the changing shadows of the Hoodoos as the sun descends. The Hoodoos are spectacular as they are ever changing.

This in one of the best view points in the park. Parking is close. It is also one of the longest view points and visitors should walk the entire length because the view changes so much in such a short distance.

Very enjoyable, must see scenery. I recommend visiting it during the sunlight; and spend sunset time at Inspiration Point or Bryce Point.

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...
