Lookout · Tourist Spot
Create an itinerary including Inspiration Point
Survey colorful limestone spires and arches from a windswept vantage point at Inspiration Point. A lookout in Bryce Canyon National Park, the point gives panoramic views of the canyon's horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters, which contain naturally formed hoodoos--spires created in limestone due to erosion. You'll marvel at the contorted formations and their graduated color palette, which changes as the light of the day moves across the valley. If you are a bird-watcher, keep an eye out for the extremely rare California condor, which can sometimes be seen in the area. The point is an excellent spot for wildlife and landscape photography.

  • As with all viewpoint in the Bryce amphitheater, this is a must see spot. The views are unique and breathtaking, especially in winter when covered with snow.

  • Breathtaking view
  • Gods creation
  • The views are Inspiration Point are amazing and so beautiful! I highly recommend to stop at this point if you are driving the scenic drive in Bryce Canyon National Park. You can see the entire canyon with lots of hoodoos from this point. There are 3 levels of elevation at Inspiration Point and I think the middle and top view are the best. There is place to park and the point is right next to the parking lot. It might be helpful to visit the points in the afternoon because there is a better chance for parking.
  • Gorgeous view wished we could have hiked to Bryce point but still worth the trip.
  • One of the best spot to view the sunrise in Bryce. I recommend this place for sunrise than “Sunrise Point” in Bryce Because 1. You will see the sunrise rays illuminating in the canyon from upper inspiration point 2. The view of amphitheater filled with sunrise rays is mesmerizing and no words to describe. Refer my photos
