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

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

Of the two parks, Bryce and Zion, I would have to say that Bryce is the most spectacular because of the Hoodoo rock formations. Also, I am one of the individuals who likes the view from the top looking down.

The amphiteatroom point has a nicer view but worth visiting this one as well. I would recommend to spend more time at the Sunrise and Sunset point.

If you've come this far, spend a few extra minutes and go to this lookout. Each one is slightly different and worth a few minutes.
