It was cloudy and rainy the day we visited. The view was awesome. Needed more sun for a truly spectacular photo

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.

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
