Sunrise Point, along with Sunset Point, provide the best viewing spots for the "hoodoo" formations in Bryce Canyon National Park. There is a very easy trail to the main viewing area, but you can also walk along a rim trail to enjoy even more beautiful sites.

among the excellent vista sites, but also a place to start the Garden hike (or to continue the Garden-Navajo hike if you began atSunset Point).

The end is a sunrise, and there is something metaphorical about that. Sunrise Point is another stunning overlook into Bryce Canyon. I would recommend walking it from Sunset Point if you are going to hike anything. It's short (under a mile), paved, and relatively level compared to the other hikes down into the canyon. You are rewarded with a gorgeous... More

You need to get up early to see the sunrise, but it is well worth it for the experience of seeing the canyon become illuminated with days first light. It will be chilly and breezy so dress accordingly.

Cant say much more than I did about Sunset Point. Take the trail between here and Sunset point (it's actually shorter than the drive!). Amazing views, but then so are all of them in this park. The name is obvious. The sun on the these red rocks will leave you speachless

Really nice spot to see sunrise at Bryce. The orientation of sunrise point means the sunlight really hits the rock and it glows a brilliant orange. The open aspect gives you a nice view across, and the easy trail down lets you get some interesting photos if you want to venture further. It's one of the closer points to the... More

Easy to get to and it's got great views down the side of the canyon. You have views of the Queen's Garden formation.

Amazing views of the hoodoos and early morning and sunset are great here and at Sunset Point - both of which are connected with an easy walking path along the canyon rim.
