Must see for all travelers. Easy access for all. Drive to all viewpoints for family adventure . . . then at the main park/lodge go hiking down in the canyon. These viewpoints are for easy viewing, no hiking required.

We are trekking at altitudes of 6000 feet above sea level, good walking shoes and plenty of water is very important. A certain level of fitness will help you enjoy your trip. A paradise for photographers

I believe this is the best view of Bryce Canyon and the one you mostly see in the brochures about the park. Plus you have the opportunity to go on a wonderful rim trail that will take you to other view points.

Inspiration Point is a vantage location from where you will be able to view the entire canyon in all it's splendor. Specially the arch and the 'Woodoos'. Popular belief has it that the Red Indians believed that their dead were turned. To stone and their spirits permanently embedded in the rocks.

The walk up the hill is somewhat steep, but the view is so worth the effort! Very beautiful sight indeed!

Easy to reach by foot - even fir those with challenges. The view is unusual and beautiful to see. It is hard to believe that hoodoos like this exist on earth.

It was worth the climb up to Inspiration Point. We were there as the sun was setting and it was so beautiful to watch the shadows move across the canyon and the sun dip below the horizon.

This was my absolute favorite place in Bryce Canyon National Park. my mind still can't comprehend what I saw and my photos don't do justice. This place is absolutely amazing! The view from inspiration point is like none other you will see in the remainder of the park. If you only had one place to stop in your stayin Bryce... More

When we stopped at this overlook in 2007, it prompted us to make a return visit this year to explore the canyon on foot. The hikes we did were fantastic (Queen's Garden, Navajo, Peekaboo, & Fairyland), but nothing compares to this phenomenal overall view of Bryce Canyon! DO NOT miss this overlook!
