"Amphitheatre (The Rim) - Bristlescone Pines." Bryce Canyon National Park Things to Do Tip by Jerelis

Bryce Canyon National Park Things to Do: 284 reviews and 569 photos

  Bristlescone Pines near the rim.
by Jerelis

Looking at the shapes of the sandstone rockboulders you'll be able to identify some of them as cathedrals, castles, minarets and even The Pope. But with some imagination you must see some more familiar images.

The best way to overlook the amphitheatre is by walking over the Rim Trial between Sunset Point and Sunrise Point. It's an easy walk of about 1 hour and it offers numerous nice views and takes you opast the extraordinarily hardy Bristlescone Pines, some of which have withstood the elements for over 1,700 years.
