Lovely view when came early but would have been better if weather co-operated a bit more. Good 180 degree view.

From this point, you can see the whole majestic city of hoodoos. It really looks like a small ancient city and there is even a castle (or so it looked to us). The fields of hoodoos defy description, they are so overwhelming in their beauty. This is a nice point to enjoy the canyon's interior, if walking down into the... More

We were staying a Bryce in August 2014 and made the effort to set the alarm to be at Sunrise point by 6:30 am for the 6:50 am sun hitting canyon rim morning show! It can be crowded at the viewpoint so be here early if you want a good vantage point. Tip - if it's too crowded at the... More

Unfortunately I didn't get to see this at sunrise but it was beautiful anyways. Easy access between sunrise and sunset points.

We parked in the last parking lot and headed towards the amphitheatre and were treated to a deserted part of the trail near Fairyland--took an easy hike towards Sunrise Point where most of the tourists were. We've hiked down into Queen's Garden before--didn't have time on this trip, but such an enjoyable outdoor excursion anyway. Such easy access--we are so... More

Odd as it sounds this was the best place to watch the sunset. The changing colors, the clouds and the beauty of the hoo doos made for a truly amazing experience. A bit crowded but worth it.

The cloud cover ahead messed up the possibility of a beautiful sun illuminating the hoodoo's. However, the hoodoo's in the filtered light was still impressive.

Must see for all travelers. Easy access for all. Drive to all viewpoints for family adventure . . . then at the main park/lodge go hiking down in the canyon. These viewpoints are for easy viewing, no hiking required.

At this elevation, morning trip for photos can be a bit chilly, so one needs a light jacket. Do not be surprised to see many like minded people crowding the sunrise point for photo shoot.

A good little hike from Sunrise to Sunset point. About an hour and a half and well worth it!! Try it out.
