Stop at all the viewpoints

When you drive the road in Bryce, stop to see all the viewpoints. Each one is different and unique, and at different elevations. You can stand and stare out here for an hour.

We enjoyed visiting Rainbow point, and made it our first stop on the Bryce canyon visit. We drove instead of taking the shuttles, and did not have trouble parking at any location. We went to Rainbow Point first, and stopped at other locations on the way back down (all the turn offs are on the left going up, and therefore... More

Another beautiful location that has a couple of minor trails as well as a trail head for the 'Under the Rim' trial (not really a day hike). There is a 1 mile loop trail that is worth the time as is offers a couple more vantage points.

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

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.

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
