A short hike leads to a broad vista of the Grand Canyon. Lots of places to view and rest along the way. Small clusters of wildflowers in the spring. Rather windy at the Point so bring a jacket.

Wow- It's very close to the Lodge and has a great platform for pictures. The platform juts you out to make it look like you are over the canyon and brings the canyon up close to you. Just beautiful.

Love the trailhead here. The Bright Angel Trail is awesome. However the views are better near the visitor center and Yavapai Point.

A short walk from the shuttle drop off (not to be confused with the canyon trail) you will be rewarded with another spectacular view of the canyon reflecting the suns rays about 1/2 hour before sunset. Hint: you must plan your trip carefully because only the shuttle buses are allowed in this part of the park. If you arrive at... More

The views are special and the lodges quaint, clean and cosy. A must visit to get a good appreciation of the Grand Canyon.

It is easy to find parking close to this point and views are excellent. This viewpoint was crowed at sunset, but at sunrise it is very few here.

This is a fun, moderately strenuous trek to one of the best viewpoints of the Grand Canyon, easily. I loved this trail. I loved it so much I did it twice, once in the late afternoon and again just before sunset. Let me tell you, this is the place to be at sunset. It was breathtaking to watch the sunset... More

We took a bus tour of the South Rim as part of our tour to the Grand Canyon. The bus stopped here and the views were spectacular!
