Create an itinerary including Inspiration Point
Survey colorful limestone spires and arches from a windswept vantage point at Inspiration Point. A lookout in Bryce Canyon National Park, the point gives panoramic views of the canyon's horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters, which contain naturally formed hoodoos--spires created in limestone due to erosion. You'll marvel at the contorted formations and their graduated color palette, which changes as the light of the day moves across the valley. If you are a bird-watcher, keep an eye out for the extremely rare California condor, which can sometimes be seen in the area. The point is an excellent spot for wildlife and landscape photography.

  • Really great views of the middle of the Amphitheater. Good facilities. Is on the bus route. Nice viewing platforms. Can get crowded.

  • Beautiful National Park not much of a hike to all the main points: Sunrise Sunset Inspiration Bryce Plenty of parking near each of the points (less than 2 minutes walking)
  • One of the best spot to view the sunrise in Bryce. I recommend this place for sunrise than “Sunrise Point” in Bryce Because 1. You will see the sunrise rays illuminating in the canyon from upper inspiration point 2. The view of amphitheater filled with sunrise rays is mesmerizing and no words to describe. Refer my photos
