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.
