Yovimpa Point reviews
This isn't the greatest stop as far as things to see but it is an excellent stop for a picnic as there are plenty of picnic tables near the parking lot as well as bathrooms. more »
This southernmost point in Bryce is lovely! I think fewer people visit this area because it's farther down the road than the other more well known spots. Don't miss it - it's quiet and there's a nice.... more »
Amazing scenery and great trails for biking and off roading.
Yovimpa Point along with Rainbow Point, is one of two nice viewpoints situated at the southern end of the Scenic Drive (Highway 63). It is 17 miles south of the Visitor Centre located just as you enter Bryce Canyon National Park. Note: For those taking the scenic drive, it is recommended go straight through to Yovimpa and Rainbow Points and to start making your viewpoint stops from there. This way you can simply pull over to the right for the various viewpoint stops which are all located on the east side of the road. We were luckily to see quite a bit of snow on the ground at Yovimpa Point during our recent visit. This made for nice photographs of the surrounding cliffs which made up the viewpoint. Note: From Yovimpa Point if you look into the distance, you can identify the Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument as well as the red rocks that make up the Vermillion Cliffs. After seeing Yovimpa Point, you can walk 3-4 minutes to the Rainbow Point, where there is a very nice view into Bryce Canyon which stretches for miles. These two viewpoints share the same parking lot so you should make sure to see both when making a stop here. Combined, this is a good spot for a 10-20 minute stop before moving onward with your scenic Drive.
