  • We started at the Sunset to Sunrise hike on the Rim Trail. This is an easy hike and it is paved. This is accessible to anyone and you can see the entire canyon. Anyone of any ability, if they only do ...  more »
  • The visitor center the second possibility to enjoy the Canyon from a viewing platform. In the evening especially lovely light for photos!

  • A tour of the Bryce NP with Sunrise Point is worth in any case. One starts at Sunset Point towards the Navajo loop (clockwise) and Queen garden trail then takes the in the course to the point of Sunrise, the entire tour of less is strenuous than in the other direction. You should take sufficient water definitely approximately 1-1.5l per person and a head covering. The tour is approximately 1.5-2 hours and to create normal condition. Absolutely to recommend!

  • 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. If you are lucky and the weather/timing are right, you can also catch the moon rising...
  • 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.
