Combined this one with Rainbow Point and the Bristlecone Loop trail. No shuttle service at the south end so it's best to do this one earlier in the day so as to not deal with too much traffic. Considering this place is some 16 miles...More

This point offers less walking and hiking and more of a photo opportunity, especially for those you are younger or may have difficulty walking or hiking the Canyon trails down to the bottom of the Canyon.

We hiked the Bristlecone Loop Trail which was basically an easy hike even with the rain. Good photos from the top and lots of interesting tree trunks and burned areas.

It was quite cold when we were here. This is the highest point along the scenic drive, and it's really cold. Even with four layers, we were chilled. Even so, it's a beautiful viewpoint, and we were glad we did it.
