Bryce Point

Vacation Travel Guide
Bryce Point featuring tranquil scenes, views and hiking or walking

Catch an unforgettably beautiful sunrise or trek along Peekaboo Loop from one of the most iconic places in Bryce Canyon.

Admire Bryce Canyon in all its glory from Bryce Point. While it is famous for its sunrises, visit at any time of day to experience nature at its most extraordinary. Discover why this vista is one of the most beloved destinations in Bryce Canyon National Park.

See a bevy of striking geologic features from Bryce Point. Try to count the hundreds of hoodoos, the iconic thin rock spires that shape Bryce Canyon’s landscape. Enjoy full views of the amphitheater, a vast swath of hoodoos jutting out of the canyon for miles. Admire the Claron Formation, the sedimentary rock layer that surrounds the canyon. Many grottos, unique cave-like rock formations formed by erosion, also spread out before you.

Set your alarm for an early wake-up and arrive at Bryce Point in time for sunrise. Watch the sun rising above the amphitheater, bathing all the hoodoos in a fiery orange light. Don’t forget your camera to capture this moment.

Explore along the 5.5-mile (8.8-kilometer) Peekaboo Loop Trail. The hike is strenuous, but you are well rewarded for your efforts. Pass the iconic Wall of Windows and Three Wise Men rock formations. For a longer hike, tackle the Under-the-Rim Trail. Follow the trail for 23 miles (37 kilometers) from Bryce Point down toward Rainbow Point and through the wilderness of Bryce Canyon. To stay overnight in the backcountry, get a permit from the park’s visitor center.

Note colorful wildflowers, such as white Maguire catchfly and purple platy penstemon, adorning the trails. Don’t miss the stunning pink Bryce Canyon paintbrush, which only grows in the canyon. Recently, Bryce Point has become a favorite destination for golden-mantled ground squirrels and uinta chipmunks. They are dangerously bold, particularly when human food is within their sight, so be sure not to feed them.

Visit Bryce Point throughout the year. Pack according to the season, as it is very hot in summer and cold in winter, and of course, don’t forget a camera to capture the beautiful vistas of the amphitheater.
