  • We've been through Bryce Canyon with the car (considering the distance) to reach a deadend, Rainbow Point. The view is beautiful, but less impressive than the amphitheatre and especially impossible to be quiet. Too many people.

  • We started the "under-the-rim" trail here. Even if not doing a big hike, avoid the crowds and hike 1 mile along the trail and back. Absolutely gorgeous! Shuttle stops here.

  • Everyone visiting Bryce Canyon should go to Rainbow Point. Take the little path to the right and walk the round trip. Very beautiful and very quiet.
  • Beautiful view but very small platform so you might even have to wait to get to the front
  • Must see in Bryce Canyon.
