We drove to Bryce Canyon from St George and this was the highlight of our day. Formations unlike anything we had even seen. Amazing! All of Bryce is beautiful but don't miss this

The panoramic views from Sunrise Point are marvelous, but the best way to experience Bryce is to take one of trails into the Amphitheater if you are able to do so and have the time.

It is now mid afternoon and the car park at Sunset Point is very crowded even this early in the season but having found a slot we have walked the short distance to Sunrise Point where it is quieter. Here the views are just enormous and quite breath-taking.

This is a nice loop and doesn't take all day. Great views. It was cold and icy the day we were there. Also being off season we were the only ones on the trail. The trail is wide enough that it would be ok for youngsters but be sure to have your hiking stick and good hiking boots.

I have hiked all of the trails in the northern portion of Bryce as a photographer, and still favor the Fairyland Loop. It is a full 8 miles from beginning to end and there is a bit of altitude along the way, but if you are seriously interested in seeing and photographing hoodoos and other features of this unique park,...

From sunrise point it's the easiest way down into the canyon to get up close to the Hoodoos! Less then a mile hike down you'll be glad you made the effort. First week in Dec. there's snow and ice on the trail, you can buy crampons to go over your hiking shoes if you would feel more comfortable (sold at... More

We visited in late morning and it was beautiful. I'm sure it would be better at sunrise but it is enjoyable any time of day. Don't let the name fool you.

The view was well worth it . Even if you don't want to go to the higher viewing area, the scenery is... More

Even though I couldn't drag myself out of bed in time for the sunrise, Sunrise Point is beautiful any time of day. It's an easy walk from the parking lot, and if you are so inclined, you can hike along the rim to other observation points.

Even though this is the place to be for sunrise, we were here mid-afternoon. Despite the time of day, I thought the rocky landscape glowed in vibrant shades of orange. We strolled along the easy half mile walk from Sunset Point to Sunrise Point. This rim trail offered fantastic views of the hoodoos. If you have the time I would... More
