“As advertised”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Really nice spot to see sunrise at Bryce. The orientation of sunrise point means the sunlight really hits the rock and it glows a brilliant orange. The open aspect gives you a nice view across, and the easy trail down lets you get some interesting photos if you want to venture further.

It's one of the closer points to the park entrance and there is a reasonable amount of parking. That said, Bryce is relatively small so the drive to other viewpoints isn't much further. An option is to park at sunset point and walk back to sunrise point along the rim trail which is pretty easy.

The main drawback of this point is that *everyone* goes there for sunrise(!) If you really don't like crowds choose somewhere else. *whispers Inspiration point is a good option too*

“Great vistas”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Easy to get to and it's got great views down the side of the canyon. You have views of the Queen's Garden formation.

“Great view of the hoodoos”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Amazing views of the hoodoos and early morning and sunset are great here and at Sunset Point - both of which are connected with an easy walking path along the canyon rim.

“Change your view”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

If you're visiting Bryce Canyon be sure to check out some of the trails. We took the one along the canyon rim to this viewpoint, jutting out some into the canyon. The light and perspective changes and you see things not visible from the rim.


there are a number of spots like this to check nout.

“Best views in my opinion”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

All the view points at awesome but we liked Sunrise best. There's an elevated rock platform were you can see at least 80 miles on a clear day. The walks along the rim take in every aspect of the park. Grab a snack while you're there.
