There is not a bad view of Bryce Canyon. Inspiration Point gives a different perspective of the area. You can either park in the parking lot and hike up to the 3 viewing platforms, take the shuttle to Bryce Point and hike DOWN to Inspiration Point, or start at either Sunrise or Sunset and hike UP to Inspiration Point.

I dont know why inspiration point... For me it is a place where you can see the great stone monuments in the small forms. You can take amazing panorama photos.

I could never get enough of this view. It is overwhelming. I find it hard to describe to anyone else and even find it more dramatic than grand Canyon. Like being on a different planet. I can never get enough of this place

Having travelled extensively and seen many of nature's finest offerings, I rarely come across something which is so awesome that it makes my jaw drop -- Inspiration Point in Bryce Canyon was such a place! In walking up toward Upper Inspiration Point I found that the canyon changes with just a few steps: forms which had not been apparent moments... More

This is truly a special park and this is a special place. Very photogenic. With some snow on the ground in April it added to the contrast of the rock.

We took in this view in the early evening and it was beautiful. I had however overestimated the walk there from sunset point, it is all uphill. Normally this would be fine but after a full day elsewhere it definitely was not a stroll. Also the park is at about 9000 feet so your body needs to get used to... More

Another view point in Bryce Canyon that you shouldn't pass up. Beautiful views from an easy access parking area. No hiking necessary, just walk to the view point and take some pictures of the most beautiful landscape you'll ever see, anywhere on this planet! You won't believe the colors and geological formations that make Bryce Canyon a National treasure.

Visited Sunset and Sunrise as well. I liked this one more. Many places to take photos close to the rim and not behind a fence (but be careful)
