    Upper IP wow, wow, wow
    This is our third day exploring Bryce and Upper Inspiration Point is our favorite viewpoint so far. Inspiration point is good but Upper IP opens up a 180' view that is breathtaking. If I was to recommend a itinerary I would say take the shuttle to Bryce Point then hike the rim trail all the way to Sunrise point. It is all downhill and you would see the majority of the most spectacular views in Bryce.

    Inspirational!
    View over the Amphitheater is impressive from anywhere to be honest, but it's well worth stopping at, or even better walking to, Inspiration Point. Personally, whilst there is the security of the bus stops nearby the real value of the Bryce Canyon experience is to walk from Sunrise Point around the rim to Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point. It's reasonably flat across the top and only takes a couple of hours. All stunning and very inspirational.

    Sunrise Over Bryce
    Inspiration Point was recommended to us to view the sunrise over Bryce Canyon. It was an incredible experience. I realize that there is a Sunrise Point in Bryce as well but I can't imagine that it is any better than this. Just watching the sunrise and witnessing the changing colors and hues of the canyon is an experience of a lifetime.

Inspiration Point is one of the outstanding observation points at Bryce Canyon. The views of the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater are absolutely amazing. There is a lower, middle and upper observation point and you should make the climb to all three. There is a parking lot here although you can also get here by using the very helpful shuttle system. An even better way to experience the scenery is to hike from Bryce Point to here and/or from here to Sunset Point. It is a relatively easy hike without much elevation change and you will have less people around you as you take in the amazing views.

Very great view of Bryce amphitheater. You can walk up to the top of the path for even better views. It is beautiful. The shuttle stops here, too.

The path to both Inspiration Point overlooks is VERY steep. Every step is worth the view, though. Take your time to get there!

There are many worthwhile pullouts and points of interest along the park road. With a name like Inspiration Point you might have inflated expectations. It is nice, but so are many others. Do not think that by seeing this you have seen the best view of the formations.

Sunrise and sunset photography are my thing. I won't hesitate to get up at 5:30 in 10ºF weather for sunrise. But, like real estate, location/location/location matters and, for sunrise, inspiration point is the location. How is Inspiration Point for the rest of the day?

Amazing!

Just a gorgeous place to view the Bryce Amphitheater. It truly is inspiring. There is both a lower level and an upper level to view from.

There are beautiful vistas from this point. It had an incline to get up to the first viewing area. If you’re in good shape home up to the very top for more great views. However, the upper part is an uneven path and May bee too strenuous for those with health/mobility issues.
