We have now reached Rainbow Point and it is absolutely amazing. A truly panoramic view with rock formations as far as the eye can see. The variety of colours, shapes and textures are a photographers dream.

When you go, you must see, and take all the opportunities there are to stop at the various viewpoints. Some may be similar but they will all impress and amaze such as this one. The colors of the rock and the expanse of the basin is beautiful.

Driving to Rainbow Point in Bryce Canyon National Park is really the kick off place. Leaving here allows one to visit each stop making a right. TOI's, picnic, Fantastic views. Highly Recommended.

This point gives you a good angle to see the canyon from. Check out Inspiration Point and the other two view points near it for closer viewing. Some consider Inspiration the best view in the park.

We had a limited amount of time to spend at Bryce and drove directly to Rainbow Point, as we were told it was beautiful at sunset. We were not disappointed. There is a short trail and safety rail. There were very few people, and we even got to see some chipmunks playing!

Beautiful views at the end of the road in Bryce Canyon NP. A highlight here is the Bristlecone Pine Trail, and 1-miles walk above the rim that highlights these amazing trees at various ages.

Rainbow Point is at the southern end of the road that follows the rim of the canyon through the park. On both of our visits to Bryce, we have at this point and worked our way back north toward the Lodge and the park entrance. This way, we were working our way back against the grain of traffic and crowds.... More

It's worth the drive because the view across the entire basin back toward the lodge rim is spectacular.

The drive out to Rainbow point is 18 miles, but it runs through mostly forest and a few meadows. Visitors are encouraged to drive from the park entrance all the way to Rainbow Point and then make their way back, stopping at about 15 points of interest along with way. It takes about three hours, but visitors get a great... More
