The geographical creation by the name of Bryce Amphitheatre will leave you speechless when you see this unique formation. Cliffs, hoodoos and castles which have resulted into the formation of Bryce Amphitheatre are a result of hard-rocks which got chiselled by wind and water and changed into all such interesting shapes. Your rendezvous with nature at Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Bryce point and Inspiration Point will be simply out of the world. The changing colours of land during sunrise and sunset are a scene which is beyond any explanation. The terrain is unique, and views are outstanding.

Bryce Amphitheater Reviews & Ratings
Bryce Amphitheater, the first three miles of the park, has the most iconic and popular views of Bryce, Sunrise, Sunset and Inspiration Points. The trails are easier walking there than those below the rim. It gets warm on the paved trail so if your schedule can be arranged to walk whatever part of this trail you wish to early on, you'll be more comfortable. Several trails also take off from here, including the Navajo and Queen's Garden. Wear good shoes; even though it is paved, it can be uneven. Note that if your camping rig is 20-feet or longer, you may not park in the Visitor Center's lot near the Amphitheater during the shuttle bus season. It is suggested that you park at the shuttle bus station, or across the road from the Visitor Center.
The Amphitheatre is a featured highlight in Bryce Canyon National Park. Conveniently located near The Lodge, this is where visitors come to see the outstanding landscape views and endless stacks of hoodoo land formations for which the national park is known for. The Rim Trail is a great way to enjoy the Amphitheatre. Particularly impressive viewpoints are found at Sunrise, Sunset, Inspiration and Bryce Points, where you can peer deep into the area, taking in outstanding views of hoodoos, other interesting land formations, Douglas Firs and hiking trails. Views into the distance are rewarding as well We were lucky to visit in early April while there remained a thin layer of snow at the Bryce Amphitheatre, giving way to many memorable photographs from the Rim viewpoints. For those interested, you can also descend into the Bryce Amphitheatre and enjoy the whimsical trails through the hoodoo forest area found along the Navajo & Queen's Garden Trails. These two dandies link up within the Amphitheatre and form one of the very best hikes we have taken in the States over the year. Seeing the hoodoos up close and personally is a fantastic experience, regardless of your interest in geology. These unique land formations are beautiful. This is probably one of the very best spots in the world to see hoodoos. Overall, we very much enjoyed our time around the Amphitheatre in Bryce Canyon National Park. This is one of those 'WOW' places that you will eagerly want to return to at some point in your future travels.
