Favorite thing: If your time in Bryce is limited, at least take the scenic drive. The Bryce Canyon scenic drive is an 18 mile road that begins near the park entrance and ends at Rainbow Point. There are several places along the way to stop and admire the view, including Aqua Canyon, Paria View and the natural Bridge overlook. The scenic drive is a good way to get an overview of the fantastic rock formations that make this park famous.

Since the turnoffs are on the left side of the road, the best way to see Bryce by car is to drive to Rainbow Point at the end and then head back in the other direction, stopping at each viewpoint turnoff on the return route.

There is a spur road which leads to Sunrise Point, where the Rim Trail and several others, including the Fairyland Trail leading to the bottom, can be found.
