The best thing about Sunset Point is the trail heads there. Beautiful spot to begin a hike. Parking, restrooms and water are available. We hiked Navajo Loop, a moderate hike below the rim with amazing views in every direction.

This is a beautiful spot for the vista of the red rock formation and the valley below. It is not far from the bus stop and from there you can start several walks from one hour to a couple of days. It is beautiful in all seasons but the point and the trails are overcrowded in the summer. Beauty and... More

we stopped at all the view points and there is not one better or worse than the other just different aspects of the stunning scenery. All have plenty of parking and good access to the rim and the views. Headed down the garden trail from here

Very accessible, the parking lot is only few minutes walking distance from the view. It takes approximately half hour to 45 minutes to fully enjoy the sights by strolling along the viewing path. The coloring of the rock and cliff formations is quite inspirational. There are also trails for the tourists to hike down to some area of the formation... More

Some beautiful views from this spot. I recommend you make it part of your day by hiking along the rim trail and seeing Bryce some different viewpoints.

Early morning or late evening will get you good views of the Hoodoos. Also the trail head to get to the Navajo and Wall Street trails.

Simple review. You MUST make the time to get up early and be here. You can take pictures - but no one who sees them will really know what you saw from this rim. Treat yourself to a memory that will make you smile.

After hiking from Sunset Point along the Rim Trail, my wife and I hiked a short way down the Queens Garden Trail into the Bryce Amphitheater. We stopped, visited with several other hikers (one nice young man from Barcelona, Spain), took some photographs, and then hiked back up (UP being the operative word!) trail to the canyon rim and then...
