Panorama Point features sweeping views of huge sandstone cliffs. This vista is easy to access from HWY 24, just 2.5 miles (4km) west of the visitor center. From the parking area, a very brief walk leads visitors to a 360-degree view. The breathtaking landscape can be viewed any time of day, although colored cliffs become particularly vibrant as sunset approaches. This high point also provides stargazers with an excellent view of the night sky.
