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...

Get up early and see the sunrise over Bryce canyon. It can be cold and crowded, eventhough its weel worth it!

It's impossible to decide which is the “best” single observation point at Bryce. Certainly the conditions influence that. For me: sunrise on a cool morning early or late in the season. No bus tours (or if there are buses, the busloads are well-behaved and respectful that others would like a peaceful time there), just the right amounts of clouds in... More

Great views of the canyon at sunrise. Best to get up 20 minutes before first light to see the whole show. You might even see Mercury or Venus. It can get crowded and the flies wake up early too. Definitely worth getting up early to watch the sunrise then head down the trail. You won't be the only one if... More

We walked from Sunset point to Sunrise point along the rim of the canyon. What awesome views. The walk was not that bad and they had benches along the way. It was just unbelievable how the hoodoos were made and how they stand up. This was the best canyon for me.

Great view of the sunrise! We arrived at 5:40 and weren't alone, there were 10 or so others along the lower trail and at the lookout point. The sky begins to light up right around 5:40, about 30 mins before the actual "sunrise" time, so make sure you're there early enough to see the progression -- it's so pretty!!

It was an easy walk though a few pple were short of breath. They were from the east & not used to the elevation. Taking ones time was helpful. All said that the view was well worth it!

This is a great place to enter or exit from down in the canyon. There is limited parking, but there are restrooms. Take time to checks out the trail from here, the views, and sunrise!
