    Bryce Canyon was part of our trip visiting all five national parks in southern Utah. The park is busy, and it was difficult to find parking at many of the scenic areas. The lots would be full, so we'd drive further and catch the ones we missed on the way back. There is a shuttle system, but they only travelled as far as Bryce Point. We drove to Rainbow Point and found plenty of scenic spots along the way. The variety of hoodoos and geology is interesting. The four most popular viewpoints (Sunrise and Sunset Points, Inspiration Point, and Bryce Point) are all within three miles of the Visitors' Center.

    Our family loved visiting Bryce Canyon National Park and this hike was a great way to experience it. The amphitheater area is great to view from above but we really enjoyed walking down into it and getting close to the hoodoos. The final push back up was a bit tough but certainly worth it. Even if you can’t do the whole loop this trail is very worthwhile.

    Sunrise and sunset photography are my thing. I won't hesitate to get up at 5:30 in 10ºF weather for sunrise. But, like real estate, location/location/location matters and, for sunrise, inspiration point is the location. How is Inspiration Point for the rest of the day?

    Amazing!

    The name obscures the highlight of the trail, Wall Street. The trail is very steep, but well maintained with numerous steps. You will see all manner of hikers and non-hikers huffing and puffing up (you can go down this trail but still have to come back up in elevation, so you might as well try to see Wall Street. The other half of the loop "features" Two Bridges, but you would walk right by it unless you look back over your shoulder and up a crevasse. A nice feature of the trail is that when you reach the bottom (or as you stand at the bottom coming from the other way, it is shady and you can cool off and rest. You can also connect to Peekabo or over to Sunrise for a respite from the elevation.

    We had read that Bryce Point was one of the better stops along the scenic drive within Bryce Canyon National Park and we were not disappointed. The parking lot was very busy but there was a volunteer there directing traffic. After driving around a few times a spot opened up. A short walk brings you to a paved trail with many spots to view the area. Highly recommended.

    There are multiple scenic views from this point in the park. You can also hike down the canyon from here. If you have a finite amount of time in the park, make sure to stop here.

    This is a lovely hike from the top at the scenic drive down to the base, and back up. It takes one through stunning, iconic scenery and it connects to other trails like the Navajo Loop. Like the others, one can reach this easily by riving up the main road through Bryce Canyon and parking in a nearby parking area. However, it if gets crowded, one may need to park further away. We did it in winter with snow and ice, but had no real hiking or snow boots and we did it fine.

    The mileage on the park map is misleading. The loop itself is about five miles, but that's if a helicopter dropped you into the amphitheater so you did not have to hike from an access point. Regardless, don't rush it. This is a long hike and sprinkles the sights along the way. You will talk through forests, long slopes among the rocks, and a wide variety of rock formations. The trail frequently curves and snakes along so the experience of seeing what is around the next corner or beyond a rock wall is part of the enjoyment. The trail you choose to access Peekabo will add to the length, but also the enjoyment.

    Wall Street, just down from Sunset Point, is a must do in Bryce. Be forewarned, it is steep. Fortunately the park employees have done a great job of maintaining the trail and many, many, many steps. And, as long as you are down the trail (or up if you are coming from the other side of the loop) you should consider one of the trails that connects into the amphitheater for a closer look at the formations and " inside" of the park.

    This spot gives great views and has great facilities. Leads to a lot of other trails. Because the access is so easy it can get crowded. Early is better.

    I have done almost all of the hikes in the Bryce newspaper given to visitors, and this is at the top. Okay, tied with whatever means you use to access Wall Street, but that is a far more demanding hike and no place to look for solitude. Fairyland is at the far end of the trail system, out beyond the crowds near the lodge and visitor center. It is longer in distance, but less physically demanding than many shorter hikes because the elevation changes are gradual. Wonderful scenery looking into the ampitheater from an angle you don't get from any other trail. Even the rim walk doesn't do this area justice, while Fairlyland gets you down into the ampitheater so you can walk among the formations and look at, or sometimes up, at them instead of down on them. Plenty of places to stop and rest. As long as you're making the trek be sure to take a very short (100 yards?) side trail to Tower Bridge, something you cannot see from any other vantage point or trail in the park. Note: the shuttle system will take you to the start/end of the trail, when operating, so you don't have to be concerned about leaving a car or arranging for pickup.

    Something you won't see anywhere else, and a sight to behold from anywhere on the rim. Be sure to sample a number of the pullouts and points of interest along the rim because the view changes. You can even leave the driving to the park shuttle, which makes frequent runs during the season, so you can hop on and off (free). The views are not confined to tourist season. A visit in the winter, while few facilities are open, is worth the drive when the amphitheater is wearing a coat of snow.

    Easy drive with many view points and easy access for great pictures. Early October was not too hot and not to cold.

    This spot off Navajo Trail is a sight to see. Part of a stunning view as you hike. Good photo opportunity.

    Rainbow Point is at the end of the Bryce Canyon Road in Bryce Canyon National Park. It is one of the highest points in the park. The elevation is 9,115 feet. It was considerably colder and windier at Rainbow Point than down near the Amphitheater. The views are terrific from here. It is a little bit of a drive to get up here and the drive is winding and uphill, but it is worth the journey. There is parking right near the Rainbow Point overlook so there is no hiking involved. I recommend a visit the Rainbow Point.
