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

I am not one to get up before dawn - but as we were staying at the Lodge, and it was only a short walk to the rim, we decided to see the sun rise over the canyon. So, a ten minute walk in the dark, chilly morning brought us to Sunrise Point. We thought we would be early, but... More

We had been here a year and a half ago in January, 2013. The point was covered in snow and a different scene than we saw today with the autumn leaves. Both sunrises were beautiful, but this time was definitely more populated and less tranquil. Not really crowded, but not quiet and peaceful as in January.

the sunrise through the rocks of Bryce Canyon is breathtaking especially on a warm morning but be careful the evenings and early morning s can be quite chilly in October

As you walk along the rim, each of these overlooks is unique, amazing, and worth spending some time to drink in the visual splendor before you.
