Rainbow and Yovimpa Points

Rainbow and Yovimpa Points Review

Separated by less than a mile, Rainbow and Yovimpa points offer two fine panoramas facing opposite directions. Rainbow Point's best view is to the north overlooking the southern rim of the amphitheater and giving a glimpse of Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument. Yovimpa Point's vista spreads out to the south. On a clear day you can see all the way to Arizona, 100 miles away. Yovimpa Point also has a shady and quiet picnic area with tables and restrooms. Hike between them on the Bristlecone Loop Trail or take the more strenuous 8½-mile Riggs Spring Loop Trail past the tallest point in the park.
