The sunrise over Bryce is awesome. Make sure your cameras are charged as I can guarantee you will take a thousand shots. Just beautiful

It is well worth getting up early wrapping up warm waiting for the sun to rise not only for the shadows that are created but for the suns rays shining through the Hoodoos making other images

I am not one to get up before dawn - but as we were staying at the Lodge, and it was only a short walk to the rim, we decided to see the sun rise over the canyon. So, a ten minute walk in the dark, chilly morning brought us to Sunrise Point. We thought we would be early, but... More

We had been here a year and a half ago in January, 2013. The point was covered in snow and a different scene than we saw today with the autumn leaves. Both sunrises were beautiful, but this time was definitely more populated and less tranquil. Not really crowded, but not quiet and peaceful as in January.

the sunrise through the rocks of Bryce Canyon is breathtaking especially on a warm morning but be careful the evenings and early morning s can be quite chilly in October

As you walk along the rim, each of these overlooks is unique, amazing, and worth spending some time to drink in the visual splendor before you.

On my trip to Bruce, aside from driving to other lookouts, this was one point where we stopped to hike. The navajo loop trail can be started from here, as well as the detour to the queens garden. You can start at sunset point if you wish, but I feel the views are slightly better if you start at sunrise... More

I have thought for years that Sunset and Sunrise points are way overhyped for viewing at those times of day. Inspiration point, or Bryce point, or even reversing sunset/sunrise for that time of day, are all preferred (by me) because the views are JUST as good and sometimes even BETTER ... and there aren't those crowds of other tourists who...

The colours and views on a fine day give a magical look to the Hoodoos. Be prepared for crowds as this is a popular spot and many bus loads of people are here, but do not let that put you off it is worth it.

Got a great view early in the morning there! We were only briefly there, so we only went to Sunrise point early in the morning (so early that we didn't even got an opportunity to pay the park fee). In the future, I'd make sure to get tot Bryce before Sundown and watch the sun go under as well.
