easy paved path with 3 gorgeous viewpoints of the hoodoo ampitheater, each higher and more beautiful than the previous. The top viewpoint is the most stunning viewpoint in the park, IMO

Amazing views of the park and trails. Sunrise is better than sunset.

Equally as beautiful views from Sunrise and Sunset and doesn’t compare at all to Peek-A-Boo loop trail.

Marvelous view of the hoodoos from an easily accessible, paved pathway.

Did portion of trail from General Store area to Inspiration Point. View is spectacular, weather is sunny and mid-60F with slight breeze. First half of hike is paved, second half not. Some steep areas between Sunset Point and Inspiration Point.

Very nice trail. A little trafficked but that was to be expected because of the holiday. But there are so many beautiful spots to just look out and enjoy this impressive canyon. Tourist being dumb and knocking rocks down was super annoying and seeing them feed the wildlife was sad too see too. But what can you do...

Really cool view of canyon, for those unable to truly hike this is a good one for them, although it must be said gettin to the highest point can be a bit of a workout. Overall not too bad, just a lot of people as could be expected.

Snowshoeing this trail was so much fun! Marlene from the visitors center was a great guide.

Beautiful views all along the trail! Because of the snow, we actually started at sunset point and hiked from there. Snowshoes were extremely helpful given there were a couple of feet of snow.

Park at the lot and walk to the overlook. Easy peasy. Fantastic views with rows and rows of hoodoos. Can also look down on the Cathedral from this overlook.

Watched sunset. Great view of colors on the hoodoos and west to see sun setting over trees. Steep incline up to views.

An easy walk up from the parking lot and such stunning views - as everywhere here! Well worth the walk up to the point and you can go an additional 1.3 miles on the Rim Trail to Bryce Point.
