From the parking area, begin hiking south on the well-worn slickrock trail. Continue hiking as the trail ascends approximately 35 feet and just over 100 yards to the top of Panorama Point. An exhibit on top provides information about the exceptionally clean air found in the park that contributes to the incredible views before you. Standing on top, it’s easy to see how this place got its name. There simply isn’t a bad view in any direction.

No trail, just a small lot with views. The panoramic views aren't even that good. Much better views in dozens of other spots in the park.

Nice, easily accessible trail from parking area. Great spot for panoramic views, sunsets and stargazing. You do however get some unwanted light from car headlights on route 24 when trying to stargaze.

Completed 6/2/19. Very short walk to the Point. Epic panoramic views for miles in every direction. Loved the snow capped mountains with the desert below provide epic photo ops. Did this at end of the day when leaving park as so easy but has such amazing beauty. Do it!

Great viewpoint. Not much of a hike, or even a walk for that matter, but definitely worth stopping for. Predictably, views are best when the sun is low in the sky, so time your visit right!

Exquisite views. Breath in some of the cleanest air in America and enjoy.

Short unpaved road to this area- I would suggest to keep going though and also check out the Goosenecks and Sunset Point if you can. This is a beautiful place for viewing and there were a lot of photographers around sunset taking pictures.

Not as cool as looking down on it from atop the Chimney Rock Trail, Panorama Point is a short walk from a paved circle. Gives you a great 360 view of Capitol Reef's features, worth the 10-15 minute stop.

Had to settle for a short walk to this viewpoint because our vehicle was too long to take the road. Nice viewpoint

More of a walk than a hike, but the viewpoint is phenomenal.
