Amazing colors and formations.

Must see if you are in Bryce Canyon. Parking is a little limited but visitors are constantly leaving opening up parking places if you are patient.

IMHO, the most stunning parts of Bryce Canyon National Park are sunrises in the northern, less vegetated, areas. After that, the “long” drive to the southern end of the main road rapidly gets “routine”, as do the vistas from the southern end. The whole area (and arguably more) is well worth protecting. But, perhaps, not quite so dramatic as watching... More

After driving several hours to get to Bryce, I'm glad we had booked this free tour in advance. The driver/narrator Jay was great, as good as NPS rangers in filling us up with information. We stopped at the end of the trail, so to speak, at Rainbow Point, but we enjoyed many other stops during the 3 1/2 hours on... More

Rainbow Point is at the end of the of the park road in Bryce Canyon. Good sized parking lot with great hiking trailheads. The Bristlecone Loop Trail is a quick 1 mile or so loop with great views. Take it clockwise it you want a little more of a workout (more uphill). At one point there is a very serene,... More

This is the last point on the 18 mile Bryce Canyon road, and it is definitely worth the drive. There is a lovely loop trail at the end of this point to take as well, and although you do not get as many views of the canyon as from the point, you do get to see beautiful nature, wildflowers, and...

Wonderful look out and trail. So many beautiful sights in this park and this is one of the best! Great at either sunrise or sunset, though get there early to have a place to watch from, take a decent SLR (cell phones suck) and dress for the weather.

This point is at the end of the road into the park, about 15 miles from the gates. Drive to here then work your way back down the road, stopping at the view points along the way. Also has trail heads here for some good trails to hike. Great at sunset too!

Go straight to the end of the road and enjoy the amazing vistas while you are out at Rainbow Point and be sure to hike the Bristelcone Pine Loop,trail,while you are out there. On the way back down be sure to stop at all the viewpoints, they are on the right side of the road!

If you have the time, sign up for the Ranger led Rainbow Tour. It's a 3 hour bus tour that takes you to Rainbow Point and many other points of interest. The Ranger shares his vast knowledge of the canyon. It was the highlight of our day.
