About Sunrise Point, Bryce Canyon National Park

The view to the northeast from Sunrise Point captures the Sinking Ship and Boat Mesa. It is set against the stark Pink Cliffs of the Aquarius Plateau. Boat Mesa is capped by the resistant rock called "The Conglomerate at Boat Mesa”. It rises above the hoodoos of Fairyland Canyon to an elevation of more than 8000 feet. To the north east side of the mesa, the tilting rocks of the Sinking Ship give an impression of geologic unrest to viewers. These rocks are basically a reminder of the tectonic activity that began about a million years ago and resulted in the rise of the Paunsaugunt Plateau to its present elevation. Sunrise Point also serves as a trailhead for Queen's Garden Trail that descends into a section of hoodoos which are ruled by the Queen Victoria hoodoo. This viewpoint also represents the end point for the Navajo Loop/Queen Victoria combination and is one of the most popular hikes in the Park.

Sunrise Point, Bryce Canyon National Park Reviews

  • Incredible views. Can be very crowded at times. Note - the upper areas of the part are between 8,000 - 9,000 ft in elevation. Some people, no matter what condition you are in, can be bothered by the altitude. Even though most trails are fairly easy for me with the elevation I found it challenging at times. Plenty of clean bathrooms and places to get water.

  • Crazy amazingly beautiful astonishingly jaw-dropping mind-bending once-in-a-lifetime experience the trails were clean and well-maintained - the facilities seemed Immaculate -- although the trail can be a little bit rigorous it is one that should be achieved if possible - recommended

  • What else can you say besides WOW!! what an absolutely beautiful place, the views are spectacular, the hiking is amazing, the grounds are beautiful and very clean, even if you don't hike what a great place to just take in the amazing views, highly recommended place to visit.

  • Wonderful place where you can see different shape kinds of mountains. Best place for hiking camping. You should go and see the place.👫💃😀😃🖒👍👍

  • Wow! This place doesn’t get enough global attention. A really cool and beautiful place in the world with easily a full day of exploring. Drive up access. Relatively empty compared to more mobbed tourist attractions like, say, Horsehoe Bend. Went in December and the snow gave it added dimension that just enhanced the beauty. Although the snowy paths were pretty slippery if your shoes don’t have great grip so be careful! Be there at sunrise to see the maximum beauty of the location. And the Red Canyon leading into Bryce Canyon is almost just as scenic and totally unique.
