  • Farthest in Bryce Canyon National Park, 27 km from the visitor centre, located Yovimpa Point with stunning views of Bryce Canyon. Within walking distance is also Rainbow Point with a view towards North, equally beautiful there. Nearby starts the kilometre long trail Bristlecone Loop. passes 1 800 year old pines. But beware of the high altitude, nearly 2 800 metres.

  • The last observation point, the farther, after the rainbow point. You see the canyon from a different perspective with respect to the various inspiration, sunset and sunrise point.

  • Amazing scenery and great trails for biking and off roading.
  • Yovimpa Point along with Rainbow Point, is one of two nice viewpoints situated at the southern end of the Scenic Drive (Highway 63). It is 17 miles south of the Visitor Centre located just as you enter Bryce Canyon National Park. Note: For those taking the scenic drive, it is recommended go straight through to Yovimpa and Rainbow Points and to start making your viewpoint stops from there. This way you can simply pull over to the right for the various viewpoint stops which are all located on the east side of the road. We were luckily to see quite a bit of snow on the ground at Yovimpa Point during our recent visit. This made for nice photographs of the surrounding cliffs which made up the viewpoint. Note: From Yovimpa Point if you look into the distance, you can identify the Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument as well as the red rocks that make up the Vermillion Cliffs. After seeing Yovimpa Point, you can walk 3-4 minutes to the Rainbow Point, where there is a very nice view into Bryce Canyon which stretches for miles. These two viewpoints share the same parking lot so you should make sure to see both when making a stop here. Combined, this is a good spot for a 10-20 minute stop before moving onward with your scenic Drive.
