This is literally the highest point of the plateau at the south end, and while Rainbow Point is often visited, and is a good attraction, a bit longer walk out to Yovimpa Point is well worth the effort. The Bristlecone trees, just a few scrawny ones, are out this way too, so the walk with the views to the west... More

Stopped here on the Rainbow Tour. This is the end of the line, furthest point in Bryce Canyon National Park. Also the highest and, therefore, overlooks a vast southern vista of the Grand Staircase - Escalante. Mountains visible miles in every direction. Also has its share of hoodoos to marvel at. Note the variety of species of trees and plants... More

Lovely views far into the distance. So can contrast the Bryce Hoodoos with the surrounding forests. Good access to viewpoint. This is farthest point on park road.

Amazing views from this point and elevation. No need to hike, just drive the main road and stop at a view point to see for miles in 3 directions.

This is a great starting point for both a quick loop hike or longer hikes. Yovimpa Point is at the end of the road in Bryce Canyon NP. On a weekday, albeit a rainy one, there weren't many people this far into the park.

After being inundated with hoodoos at all of the other points this view prides a different perspective showing you more of the distance and valley with less emphasis on hoodoos. The two points can be seen at one stop and the walkway is paved for your ease of walking. After the ride a walk through the one mile wooded trail... More

We stopped at all the scenic overlooks. This one has a great picnic area. The tables are secluded and shaded but still very close to the parking lot. The bristlecone loop trail is an easy 1 mile hike. Clean restrooms available. There were several tour buses her making it somewhat crowded. Great view
