From the park entrance, this 18-mile road runs past 13 spectacular overlooks of Bryce Canyon. On clear days you can see more than 100 miles! You'll notice changes in the vegetation as the road climbs from about 8,000 feet near the visitor center to 9,105 feet at Rainbow Point, the highest area of the park. As the viewpoints lie to the east of the road, it's easiest to drive first to Rainbow Point in the south, then stop at the other vistas on the way back. Winter storms may close the southern section of the road. Hiking trails connect with many of the viewpoints and follow the rim or descend into the depths with many loop possibilities.
