We did not see sunrise here, it waa actually nearly sunset, but the views were still incredible and I can only imagine the beauty when the sun rise sets glow to the hoodoo formations. It's a quick half mile hike from Sunset Point with views...More

Sunrise Point along with Sunset Point are easily accessible points along the rim of Bryce Canyon. Both points give beautiful views of the canyon. To access the points, we ended up parking by the lodge and walking along the Rim Trail. From Sunrise Point, you...More

This is the place to go to watch the sunrise.....of course, you will need to know the time of the sunrise and get up early enough to get there. Great vantage point.

This was awe inspiring. Imagining how nature could create this magnificent sculpture is truly amazing and visually very appealing. There is so much to see here. Hard to take it all in in just one day. Would like to go back again.

Great photo op, in a place full of photo ops. The signs were informative, and it was super breezy. Nice short stop.

Watched the sunrise through some clouds but the real show I believe is watching it light up the Amphitheater behind you. The colors change so quickly it’s spectacular. A bit of a climb if you are easily winded but paved. Saw many deer here at...More

This is where the buses and tourists go if you don't hike or are not active. The views are to die for lots of hoodoos and the amphitheater to tak pictures of.

Get there early in the morning, you won’t be sorry. Great place to start your exploration of Bryce National Park. A rising sun casts it’s special nuances around the west rim early in the day. Sure glad we made the effort to get there early....More

Not far just a few mins. Totally worth it, and there is great points to view it along the way before you get to actual sunrise point.

Did we make a good choice - Sunrise Point? (2 Replies)
1st time stay in Myrtle Beach...School vacation week..We have rented a 3 bedroom/3 bath condo at Sunrise Point. We have a 22 year old, 19 year old and a 17 year old. The guys are interested in golf and the girls are interested in "sun and fun." We wanted a place which was quiet and don't mind driving to the action in the evening. Any suggestions? Also, how long is the drive to the "HUB of "action"? Anything we should defintely see? Thanks

Have never stayed at Sunrise Point but it's probably safe to say it will be a nice building and condo. Don't know about in the spring but in the summer you have probably the widest beach around at low tide in that area. Location is off the beaten path so traffic in the area is very light. This time of year there should be very little. Cherry Grove is almost like a pennisula. Ocean on one side, An inlet to the north and marsh land to the rear. At high tide the marsh is like a large...More

We woke up bright and early on Friday morning and left the house around 6:15 to head to Bryce Canyon for a 9 am trail ride. My wife loves horses and has some chronic knee issues, so I thought this would be a fun way to navigate Bryce Canyon without the stress of a long hike. We stopped in Cedar City to fuel up and grab McDonalds to go, and made it to the Bryce Canyon Lodge for check-in by 8:30. There were about 30-40 people total in our group, and the trail hands put a lot of thought into...More

Nice day! The tunnel is usually two-way. However, oversized vehicles fit only if they drive down the center line (it was built long before modern motorhomes and buses). That's when you see the one-way traffic. Not a bad place to wait, though!

We will arrive from Page in late afternoon and do the Mossy Cave Trail, then head to our Best Western hotel for swim and dinner. The next day we will check out of BW and head to Bryce Lodge for one night stay. If we arrive at the Lodge before 9 will we find parking? Do we get any preferential parking treatment? From the lodge parking we want to walk to Sunrise Point and do the Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden Loop trail while it is cooler morning temps. After a lunch in the lodge we want...More

If you are a guest at the Lodge, you should be able to get a parking spot. If you are staying at the Lodge, it really somewhat defeats the purpose to then get into a car and drive to Bryce Point for sunrise. I would just walk from the Lodge the few minutes to the rim and enjoy the fact you are staying so close. Have fun.
