It’s the best to start your auto tour of Bryce Canyon National Park by driving directly to the extreme southern end first. From here at Rainbow Point you can see the entirety of the park stretched out before you back to the north.
Before leaving the Rainbow Point area, make sure you walk to the southern overlook -Yovimpa Point. This is one of the places from where you can get a good look at the sequence of rock layers called the Grand Staircase. The steps of the Grand Staircase are named after the dominant color of rock. The top step is known as the Pink Cliffs. And the one below that is called the Grey Cliffs. You will also see Molly's Nipple, which is part of the White Cliffs. Some other cliffs are named White Cliffs and Vermilion Cliffs. Hidden from view but directly under the towering Vermilion Cliffs are the Chocolate Cliffs. After spending a few minutes at both Rainbow and Yovimpa Points, you will actually get a geologic and geographic orientation, helping you better understand the landscape and landforms that surround Bryce Canyon National Park.

Rainbow Point And Yovimpa Point Reviews & Ratings
My wife and I spent a week in and around Bryce and Zions National Parks and thoroughly enjoyed our time. We were limited on hiking because of a recent medical issue I had had, but I felt I was able to see a vast majority of the parks' scenery. We ave been to many of the National Parks and these were certainly unique and a great time. Zions was extremely busy but Bryce was much better and the crowds not overwhelming. We had come in the first week in June so we were not surprised by the number of people. The tour busses discourage hundreds at each stop so be prepared.
Rainbow Point is the highest point of elevation in the Bryce Canyon region of southwest Utah. After a long drive it is a wonderful place to get out and survey the incredible beauty of nature. Clocking in at about 1,000 feet shy of two miles above sea level, the view is truly far and wide. It is truly hard to put into words the vista that is laid out for your enjoyment. It is well worth the trip to experience it first hand.
Great view into the deep valley throughout the area. A few locations around the point for a different view of the same areas at different levels and angles make for a nice stretch of the legs.
Amazing place. The view was well worth the short walk out to the point.
It is an amazing view point. It us the last stop in the park, 18 miles down the road, so a 36 mile round trip. But there are lots of points to pull over and see on the way there or back. It us a one road out and the same road back.
