Rainbow Point is on the very far end of the park so the drive takes a while. The views are very nice but probably not as awesome as the more famous viewpoints closer to the main canyon. The point is also at the highest elevation of Bryce so you'll find the coolest weather and some different foliage here too.

The lookout it self has a spectacular big view. Well worth the drive. We also hike Riggs Spring Loop. The trail needs attention. For as many cut logs across trails we had to climb over an equal amount. There were a couple of places crossing old run offs where the trail could have been cairned to mark. Loved the difference...

The vistas are gorgeous the amenities excellent. I recommend taking the Rainbow Point Bus tour, the bus driver gives a 3 hour commentary on the flora, fauna, history and sights the whole time on the bus, the tour is free, but you must reserve your tour.

This is located at the very end of the Bryce Canyon National Park. It's elevation is 9115 feet. It offers a nice view of the plateaus of Utah. This viewpoint has several wonderful picture story board that help illustrate Bryce Canyon's geology and how the canyon was formed. This helps to put into perspective the wonders that the other viewpoints... More

Although there was no rainbow, it was an absolutely gorgeous view and I took several photos. Would have been spectacular with a rainbow which we might have seen because we were having intermittent showers and sun,

If you are visiting Bryce, this is a must. This viewpoint offers one of the best views of the canyon below. You can see far and wide from here.

You can see for many miles. The colors in the hills are outstanding. Be sure your camera has a full battery and empty memory card.

This is the farthest point on the Green Loop and sits adjacent to the Yovampi Point overlook. Both provide wonderful views of the surrounding rock formations and the valleys/passes. It has a nice restroom facility.

I recommend driving to Rainbow point, doing the loop (it only takes an hour) and driving back, stopping at every lookout that has a name. If it doesn't have a name it really isn't worth stopping to see. The national park costs $25 per car but entry is valid for a week. (This would have been useful for us to... More
