Caught on the backside

Started on one side and came out on Sunsrise Point and then walked back around to the beginning and the parking lot. Great hike.

If you are visiting Bryce with limited time, ensure you stop at Sunrise, Sunset, and Natural Bridge. I thought those best represented the unique aspects of the park. For those with dogs, limited mobility, or just a desire (and time) for a less strenuous walk, Sunrise to Sunset trail is well worth the excursion. When we visited with our dogs,... More

This was our favorite stop not only because it was the first view of the valley of hoodoos but because it offered the most access to the valley floor. What stunning views from this point!

Just get tjere some minutes before sunrise and be amazed. I could not stop shooting, every sencong images were different. Wonderful place, one of the best views I've ever seen. If you plan it in advance, there is a very nice trail from here to Sunset point that will take you no more than a couple of hours (photos included)

It is very hard to take in there is so much to see! The shapes and colors are extraordinary! Take your time, and know as much as possible.

if you can visit in the winter - and it's not blowing cold - then this is a must see spot. Even though we couldn't see most of the Bryce due to Park service poor leadership in getting the roads plowed ( see my review on the park), this was worth it. Easy access. I love the fact that wheelchairs... More

Again, no really bad views from the rim. We visited mid/late afternoon so the sun was to our right (south). This point looks due east, hence the Sunrise name, would be spectacular I'm sure at sunrise.

The view from Sunrise Point is great, just like the many viewpoints in Bryce. The best thing about Sunset Point is that it is a good spot to start a great hike through the canyon. We recommend the Queen's Garden/Navajo Loop combo, adding on Peek-A-Boo Loop for the real nature lovers.

The sunrise over Bryce is awesome. Make sure your cameras are charged as I can guarantee you will take a thousand shots. Just beautiful

It is well worth getting up early wrapping up warm waiting for the sun to rise not only for the shadows that are created but for the suns rays shining through the Hoodoos making other images
