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!

Inspiration Point Reviews & Ratings
Inspiration Point is a super great view. This is a amazing and great view. Love the scenery and the time we spent here. We will definitely visit more here in the years to come. If my review helps you in any way can you PLEASE leave me a thumbs up like on my review. Thank you.
Was I inspired by inspiration point? I definitely was. Was I inspired by the mass number of tourists? Not so much. Inspiration point as a breathtaking view. It's a bit of a climb And you'll probably be winded by the time you get to the top. But it's well worth it because you're not likely to see the amphitheater and a different light. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare if there's a lot of traffic.
Possibly would've been nicer in the early morning or near sunset, but during midday heat and crowd, the atmosphere just isn't as nice since it's loud and hot. You can get to this point from Sunset or Sunrise Point on the other end of the canyons. We ended up driving to this spot, it's essentially another angle of the canyons that you can also see from Sunrise/Sunset (I recommend these two since you can get a panoramic shot from those points). But the view was beautiful nonetheless! Albeit the crowd, it wasn't too hard to find a parking spot. More than enough open space that it was easy to find one without needing to fight with other drivers.
Beautiful! So many beautiful Vistas. Go and have a delightful experience and take your time.
Beautiful! Try to time your visit to near sunset for amazing lighting on the Hoodoos.
