The viewpoint at Inspiration Point consists of three levels. This three level structure provides varied spectacular perspectives of the main amphitheater. From here, visitors look towards the Silent City (near Sunset Point) with its many rows of seemingly frozen hoodoos which are set against the backdrop of Boat Mesa. All who look out from this point are definitely going to be inspired, thanks to the intricacies of the hoodoos and their formation through the erosion. The barren slopes of Inspiration Point consist of a mix of trees including Bristlecone Pines. While they are famous for their venerable ages, younger bristle cones go on to take a very different appearance. They are thin, tall and unique among pines in which the entire lengths of the branches are covered with needles. This also gives them the bushy appearance that earned them the nickname "fox-tail pines." Look carefully as you walk through these barren slopes – otherwise you might just come across a Mountain Short-horned Lizard trying to remain camouflaged!

Another great place to view the Amphitheater in Bryce Canyon. We hiked here from Bryce Point, 1.3 miles one way, and it was a good hike with some sections that were a bit narrow with drop offs in both directions. But we were glad to get here and back for the views.
I love this place. I chose this place Inspiration Point for sunset time and was very happy with my choice. Panoramic view was fantastic and sunset was unforgettable. And I was back to this point around 1am to make night photography and was happy again. Inspiration place. No doubt.
Maybe the best view. It's possible to admire all the amphitheatre. Easy to access and not so crowded like other spots
Gorgeous! Our country has beautiful natural beauty. A must see for all.
A nice section to see great views of Bryce Canyon National Park. This area is significantly less busy than, say, Sunset or Sunrise Point. Additionally, there is a flat, easy hiking trail that connects Inspiration Point to Sunset Point that has great views. There is also ac(free) shuttle stop at Inspiration Point, making getting here easy and stress free.
