Beautiful drive to yet another stunning view

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... read more

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

The point is the last in the Bryce canyon. We went there and it was -1 celcius and very cold wind. It was very difficult to stay longer if you are not prepared for such a weather.

It is well worth the 15 mile drive to get to this jewel. It's over 9000 feet high. Great outlook & lots of various little creatures food begging! Walk the whole crescent moon section. The picnic tables have no view! Too bad....

It was a beautiful spring evening and we went out for a drive looking for the best place to watch the sunset in Bryce. Obviously it isn't Sunset Point because the sun sets on the other side of the mountain. So we ventured down the road figuring that we'd find a pull out point to enjoy the view. Well, there... More

It's worth the drive to get here. The views are stunning. My wife and I gave our cameras a workout. We took plenty of photos.

Visited the first part of April and it was windy and a little on the cool side, so be sure and have a coat! Beautiful views and photographic opportunities. "Rainbow" Point earns its name as the colors here are outstanding. There are several overviews in Bryce Canyon, but each has its own personality. Don't pass this one up!

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.
