The park consists of high areas and semi-arid, and presents a set of huge natural amphitheatres scattered many hoodoos produced by erosion of the Paunsaugunt plateau. Several natural amphitheatres are carved by erosion. The largest of them, Bryce Canyon, is nearly 20 km long and 5 km wide, with a maximum depth of 250 m. A path runs along the top edge of the amphitheater and several observation posts, called Sunrise Point, Sunset Point, Inspiration Point and Bryce Point, are present.
