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.

This road reminded me of the North Grand Canyon road where so many trees were burned however; at Bryce there are several viewpoints to break up the ride.The reward is a beautiful view of the Bryce Canyon Valley with long vistas all around the point. It is worth the drive and most of the people are gathered at the Bryce... More

The road ends at Rainbow Point in Bryce Canyon. The elevation is over 9100 feet and from the high canyon perch one can see the entire length of Bryce and its red cliffs. The hoodoos take and endless number of forms and being able to see the incredible natural miracle of the Bryce Canyon National Park, is well worth it!

Wow, what a challenge road biking to the point. And it was cold and breezy at the top (even a bit of snow falling). Viewpoint at top makes trip worthwhile

Rainbow Point was much less crowded than other areas in the park. The views were great though there aren't as many rock formations as some of the other viewpoints in the park. It's breathtaking nonetheless. The elevation is about 9000 ft and we got snowed on while we were there so you might want a jacket

It was cold and windy, but the views more than made up for any physical discomfort. The entire 18 mile scenic drive is worth the time. There are many nice sized parking areas along the route with fabulous views and short (or long) hikes nearby.
