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

This is the last overlook in the park and a bit of a drive from the park entrance - but definitely worth it. While some of the first few overlooks in the park are all about the stone hoodoos, this area gives you an entirely different perspective of the park. The views from this 9,000 ft elevation overlook give you... More

I drove up to Rainbow Point to see the rest of the canyon and was really glad I did. The hail storm made an amazing impression with the bright white snow against the red rocks. The views are really nice and the drive up to Rainbow Point is very calm and relaxing.
