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.

I like to hike, but my mom being in her 60's now (And still doing pretty good if you ask me!) cant handle steep hikes too well. So we try to make most of the views we set out to see car friendly adventures and you cant get much better than Bryce Canyon for accessibility. You can drive all the... More

This is the point at the top of the canyon- over 9000 ft! Just beautiful!!! We took photos when the sun was out and when the thunder and lightning were moving in...fantastic vista!!! Wonderful place for all your panoramic photos too!

No way to describe it if you haven't seen it. It's as out-of-the-ordinary as the Avatar world in the film, but with a certain desolation. Colors are magnificent. Plan your trip there. NOW - just do it!

We began our three day visit by going to the farthest point . The view was eye opening as it provided a panoramic view of the Bryce Canyon cliffs, the valleys and mountains. The Bristlecone Loop Trail through centuries old spruce-fir trees to other overlooks was fun and easy. At 9100 feet, it was refreshing in July.

It is the furthest point of the canyon and involves a fairly long drive to get there, but is worth it through and through. Novimpa Point is at the same venue. All the othe rpoints make the drive totally worthwhile.

We signed up in advance for the Rainbow Point Bus Tour which will pick up and drop off at Ruby's Inn. This turned out to be a great decision and a wonderful tour. A full four hours, you make numerous stops and go all the way to Rainbow Point, which is considered "the end of the line" in Bryce Canyon.... More

The drive to Rainbow Point (9.115 ft elevation) is worth the time. We drove here after a 20 minute rain shower. It was great, because a lot of people left the park when it rained and we pretty much had the area to ourselves to snap pictures of the spectacular view. Hop in your car and do the drive, it... More
