  • There are many viewpoints along the length of the park and this is obviously one which people cluster at for Sunset but I did hear one of the rangers say that Bryce Point or possibly one of the others...  more »
  • The Sunset Point offers a magnificent panorama, but it is also a convenient start/finish point for the magnificent hiking trails inside the canyon.

  • Arriving in late afternoon, it made sense to head here for the pre sunset view. It was spectacular, even though the January sun was lower in the sky. The fresh snow added the frosting to the cake, so ...  more »

  • The sun sets behind you as you stand at Sunset Point and quickly wipes away from the rocks in the canyon below. Once it sets, wait and watch for the colorful glow of the sun's shadow wiping upwards through the atmosphere on the opposite horizon.

  • Unless you are a gGodless hHeathen take any of the trails from Sunset point and you will be satisfied. We took Navajo trail and filled our cups to runneth overing. Take pictures if you must.
  • One of the most epic natural gems America has to offer.
  • Bryce canyon is as good as it gets. This summer we did a 19 State 7500 mile trip which put me at the 50 state Mark now. I have also been to over 70 countries and counting… That being said in my humble opinion Bryce Canyon is THE BEST PLACE ON THE PLANET. We visited during The heat wave of 2017 or most of the parks out west were topping the 100 degree mark. During that same time due to the elevation Bryce canyon was still a very comfortable 75° during the daytime topping out at 83 on our hottest day. It was a very dry comfortable place the views were beyond spectacular in the hiking was fantastic. I could've easily spent more than 30 days here and still have wanted more!
  • Extremely beautiful and dogs are allowed. Best to go in the afternoon.
