This spot is THE BEST for photographing pre-dawn and sunrise. Simply amazing views stretching out well beyond the Bryce Canyon amphitheater itself. You won’t be alone as it is a very popular spot but the earlier you get there, the better to stake out your...More

You can either hike up a trail from the bottom of the canyon via the Peekaboo Loop, or simply drive from the visitors center to a nearby parking lot where you can have a short walk to the observation area. When we were there in...More
Bryce Point in Bryce Canyon National Park is famous for its extraordinary sunrises. Visitors are amazed by the scenic vistas of the full amphitheater and all its wonders. From here you can watch the tops of hoodoos set alight as if by fire from the...More
Limited parking here, so take the shuttle bus. Impressive views via a rock formation that sticks way out into the canyon. You can see hikers from here in every direction. Better yet, hike down into the canyon as far as you are able for even...More
This is one of the four amazing viewpoints overlooking the Bryce amphitheater. It’s a must see when you visit the park, but it’s also probably the most difficult to park at. There’s often a ranger standing in the road leading to Bryce Point, telling the...More
I will be in Bryce in April and would like to hike the Rim Trail from Fairyland point to Bryce Point. I don't see a shuttle at Fairyland Point so I'm wondering how I get there so we can hike to Bryce Point?

Welcome to the Forum. There is no shuttle service in Bryce in April. Even with shuttle service that typically starts some time in May, there is still no shuttle that serves Fairyland, only the main Amphitheatre. The only way to start/end at Fairyland will be to get dropped off or picked up there. Also note that in April, Fairyland trail and the 1 mile Fairyland Access road may be covered with snow still.

Sunrise and sunset photo recommendations (2 Replies)
Sorry if these are common questions. Does anyone have recommendations on the best locations for sunrise and sunset photos? Are sunrises better opportunities than sunsets? It seems like the sunset lighting could be subdued, and just kind of get dark. I know there are vista points called Sunrise and Sunset, but do you know if Inspiration Point and Bryce Point are better, or just different? Would you recommend Inspiration Point or Bryce Point if you could only select one? Thanks...More

Welcome to the forum, rarvesen. There are a lot of good spots for viewing the sunrise and sunset at BC, and this is an often discussed topic. For example the link below goes to a thread that has great suggestions on viewing sunrise. The last post in the thread has some interesting info from the BC Rangers: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g143015-i1469-k173… I found this thread by typing "sunrise" into the search box at the top of the forum (where is says Search In: Bryce Canyon National...More
Park intinerary, lodge parking questions (15 Replies)
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.
