Black Birch Canyon Overlook - roadside Bryce Canyon Rim

From the visitor center, drive 18 miles to Yovimpa and Rainbow Point overlooks, which offer expansive views of southern Utah, and 90 miles away to Arizona. Then on the return from these adjoining stops, most of the overlook stops are now on the rim side of the road.

The Black Birch Canyon Overlook is a roadside pullout, where you get a good view of the southern part of the park, including back to Rainbow Point.
From here, drive back north to where you can gaze down at multicolored hoodoos rising from a dense forest of spruce and fir trees. No walking needed, maximum gain for minimum effort by toddlers or Seniors.

IMPORTANT TIP: because all the overlooks are on a driver's left as you begin your rim drive, it is best to avoid crossing over oncoming traffic by driving all the way to the end of the road, without stopping. If stopping at the overlooks on your return trip, allow 1 to 2 hours for the main viewpoints, 3 to 4 hours if you plan to do a bit of walking to some with a short hike to the rim.
