There is a short loop walk here and it is worth doing to get various aspects of the whole area. It is approximately 9000 feet at this point so on a fine day great views.

On the day we visited, the park was moderately busy and there were quite a few people at most locations. However, this view point requires a short walk from the car park so there was no one there. If you want some peace and quiet this is a great place to come and the view is particularly good.

This view point is one of the furthest into the canyon. The view is beautiful, but not the best the park has to offer.

Another nice lookout point along the main road. Slightly different in that you have a short walk between the trees first (10 minutes).

While not as spectacular as Natural Bridge or Sunset and Inspiration, it still provides a stunning view of the surrounding valley and pass as well as some nice rock formations. It sits adjacent to Rainbow Point so you can walk both areas at the same stop.

Yovimpa Point is a short walk from Rainbow Point. The viewpoint is located about 17 - 20 miles from the visitor's center, but the drive is worthwhile. You will see a great view of the hoodoos without the crowd.

As you enter Rainbow Point most people drove to the left took a look out, took some photo's and went. Make the effort of a ten minute walk to Yovimpa Point as I certainly think it's worth it. You walk through the shade of the trees on a well maintained path (0.2 mile) to be greeted with the most beautiful... More

You can skip this one if you are staying in the Park, this is an outlook for those looking just to drive through Bryce and see some sites.

How to get there: you can either drive in your own car or take the Rainbow point shuttle. If you are taking your own car , parking could be a problem. If you are riding the shuttle , it is free and you need to reserve your place on it. The shuttle runs twice daily at 9 am and 1... More

Yovimpai Point is actually further south than Rainbow Point but is accessed by a short paved trail (~0.2 mile each way) from parking near Rainbow Point. From Yovimpai Point one gets a view of each of the plateaus of the Grand Staircase Escalante reaching into Arizona, Navajo Mountain and on some days even into New Mexico. While the view is... More
