  • We are with the shuttle came here and after here to have enjoyed the beautiful view we are the Navajo Loop Trail. The trail is certainly beautiful and particularly by the trees that grow in the narrow Canyon. We are at two o'clock in the afternoon, this loop and especially on the first section was very busy. You stumbled across large groups of Chinese who in the middle of the narrow path to take their pictures. But if you walk it is becoming calmer. The entire walk takes about 1.5 hours. The last part of the walk is quite demanding by the large increase.

  • Exhausting but it is really worth to the 1.3 miles of hiking to the bottom of the canyon. Need you good shoes and courage.

  • A great view of the amphitheatre and beautiful Navajo Loop Trail trailhead. If we don't do trail with vertical, you can also walk to Sunrise Point.

  • In case it isn't obvious, this is definitely the best place in the park to catch the sunset. The setting sun illuminates the canyon walls as it sets here and makes for a breath taking view. This is also a great place to set off to explore the canyon on the hiking trails which descend down into it. Make sure to at least take the trail around the rim to get some great views. Head down in as well if you have the time, you won't regret it.
  • Sunset Point is situated along the Rim Trail near the Lodge in Bryce Canyon National Park. Here you can enjoy extended views into the Bryce Amphitheatre and the canyon floor area and watch the colours of the stacks of hoodoos reflect the soft colours of the evening light after sunset. We enjoyed joining other visitors eager to be at this particular location in the evening. Quite a few people arrived 30-45 minutes before sunset in order to set up tripods, making the area quite crowded in a relatively small space. This is something to keep in mind if you want to come setup here for photographs in the evening. Note: There is a similar Sunrise Point further north along the Rim Trail. This is another nice spot nearby for impressive views into the Amphitheatre.
  • Must do hike. Just amazing walk and views. But start the hike at Sunrise point and walk the navajo loop trail with Queens garden. Its 5km approximately. You want to do it this way since you want to climb up to sunset point through Wall Street. Just amazing hike.
  • Definitely do the Navajo Loop Trail if you can! Sunset Point is great but you don't get the full experience of the park without hiking a small section of it. A warning for you though - there is a sign that states that most of the falling rocks in the park come from this area so do be careful and mindful!
  • A must visit place. Much smaller in scale than the Grand Canyon but very beautiful views. It has pinkish hue to it. Best part is we can easily go for a short trek till the lower trail point. it gives many photo opportunities. Sunset and sunrise moments are precious. Even kids can try the short trek.
