Praised for hosting the best view in all of Bryce Canyon National Park, Inspiration Point (at 8,143 feet) is one of the most popular vantage points along the western rim of Bryce Canyon. From Inspiration Point, visitors can look out over the Bryce Amphitheater and north toward the canyon's iconic Silent City and across the East Valley as far east as the Escalante Mountain's Table Cliff Plateau and 10,620-foot Barney Top.

From Inspiration Point you can hike north 0.7 miles along the Bryce Canyon Rim Trail to Sunset Point or head south 1.5 miles to the equally picturesque Bryce Point.
