Bryce Point#2 in Best Things To Do in Bryce Canyon National Park
Price & Hours
- 0.0Food Scene
One of the most popular viewpoints in the park, Bryce Point offers stunning sunrises for those willing to get up early. As the sun rises, it looks like the tops of the hoodoos are on fire, and then they rapidly and almost magically change colors. One former visitor who made the early morning trip called it breathtaking, but others said it is just as stunning at all hours of the day.
There are two trails that start at Bryce Point, including the strenuous 5 ½-mile Peek-a-Boo Loop Trail, which steeply drops to the canyon floor. From here, travelers can also tackle the 23-mile Under-the-Rim trail, which descends from Bryce Point toward Rainbow Point. If you're up for the challenge, keep in mind that overnight hikes through Bryce Canyon's backcountry require a permit.
Bryce Point, which is free to access with park admission, sits 3 ½ miles south of the visitor center and is the third stop on the regular route of the free shuttle. Since the park's free shuttle doesn't run before dawn, visitors will need their own transportation to get to Bryce Point for sunrise. Remember: There are no services at Bryce Point.

For diverse perspectives of the main amphitheater, head to Inspiration Point, which is home to three levels of viewpoints. From here, visitors can look toward the Silent City (near Sunset Point) with rows of hoodoos set against the backdrop of Boat Mesa. Recent visitors called the view breathtaking and noted that this is a great way for people with mobility issues to see "one of the most incredible views in the USA."
