This was our first view of the park and it was spectacular. We went back the next morning but I prefer it later in the day. At that time it is also easier to take pictures. It is difficult to describe the landscape and the colors. Guess you will just have to come and see for yourself.

One of the best sunrises in the world. Andddddd yes I went to Bryce Point the following morning. If you only have one sunrise . . Be at sunrise point 15 minutes before sunrise. Extra credit: Get your sunrise pics, but then go into the belly if the canyon via the queens garden trail 10 feet away. You will be... More

I usually have taken pictures from Sunset Point but this time we went over to Sunrise and it was just as amazing and such a great view of the canyon. Take the time to take the short walk to see the different perspective.

As this is the first viewpoint you'll arrive at after entering the Park, it is VERY busy. In addition, this is the same access road that the Park Store is on and it is unbelievable how many cars and people will be there at any one time. Given all of that, this is a great view point to visit and... More

My wife and I were here at midday, so we missed the sunrise, which is supposed to be spectacular. Nonetheless, we were awed by the fantastic vistas, and we took plenty of pictures.

Great views, not easy to find a place to park around midday, it's not the best view in my opinion, but should be a part of 4 views 'pack', together with Bryce, inspiration point and Sunrise.

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!
