Bryce sunrise or sunset? and hikes

Jump to last reply

We're going to be in Panguitch for 2 nights to experience a full day in Bryce. We've been there twice before, but both times just a few hours and 12 years ago (kids were so little and have no memory of it!!).

I'd love to see (photograph) the sunrise, but not so sure we'll be able to drag our bodies out of bed. But here's what I'm wondering... IF I can convince the troops to get up early, would a drive back to Panguitch for a nap and lunch be doable, returning for hikes and the sunset?

Or skip sunrise and get a more rested mid-morning start and stay there all day until sunset?

I guess I could drive in by myself, then come back and get the troops but I might be too chicken to do that alone in the dark.

Sunrise 7:08, Sunset 7:42

(about lodging... I know it'd be easier to stay IN park because of this very reason, but we're getting a whole house/kitchen/laundry in Panguitch for only $90, so price and comfort win over convenience this time)

And I read someone here said to do a trail backwards... starting at the opposite end because it's easier. I forgot which one! I'm not a great hiker because my hips don't like me (and I'm not so sure I'm going to like the higher elevation). How's the rim hike? Definitely want to go down in it some though.
