When we arrived there, we thought "Yeah well, yet another viewpoint, and not the best ones for pictures", but then we heard a lady describing shapes and telling stories to a group so asked if we could join and it was fascinating. An eye-opener. So...More

We spent several days at Bryce Canyon and visited most if not all of the viewpoints, and Fairyland point was the least appealing. suggestion: visit it first before any other viewpoint and you likely will not be disappointed.

This is another of the beautiful spots in Bryce. It really is essential to visit each and every one to take in the incredible vistas.

You can go here before you actually enter the park. It's a good introduction to what you'll see at Bryce, and you can hike the trail if you choose.

For an experience with fewer others around you - this is a great spot. It's a 2.5 mile (one-way) hike from the Lodge area or a 5 minute drive (beyond the fee station). The road to the Fairyland Point is a 1 mile paved road....More

We went to fairyland point on our way home from Bryce Canyon. It was like a fairyland as the hoodoos look like castles and palaces. There is a hiking trail that goes to the bottom. We went about one third of the way but it...More
