Spectacular view

This was the best time of the year to go - good temperatures and no crowds. From here you see how big this place really is.

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.

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.

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.
