It was a 6 or 7 minute walk from our lodgings at Maswik Lodge in Grand Canyon Village and is a very short walk away from restaurants on the south rim. The views are spectacular. If you go to view sunrise or sunset, I recommend walking... More

Some very nice lookout areas to see and take pictures. Enjoyed this area quite a bit. It is difficult to get to the North Rim, but I feel it was worth the trip.

We hiked this trail at the Grand Canyon and it was an amazing experience. Perfect weather in September, but hot when the sun was on you. Beautiful views! What else can be said about this amazing place? Just be sure to have good hiking shoes and layers and plenty of water to start out; there is a place to refill,... More

Bright Angel Point has some astounding photo-ops from start to finish. It is obviously much easier going down, but you can turn around whenever you want. Amazing!

You walk down a narrow path to a point that overlooks the Grand Canyon and offers a nearly 360 degree view of an amazing place. It's one of the 7 natural wonders of the world and for good reason.

This view point is located off of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and provides views looking south toward the south rim. A must see while on the North Rim.

It was very wide and I felt safe about hiking it and taking my time and enjoying the view from every angle, my family went on down farther that I did cause I knew its harder to get back upend takes longer, I was able to get great photos!

You can adopt a mountain lion here. the Kolb studio has a balcony to view into the canyon from this vantage point. The hours are from early to late. and open when the part is open I think. You can see the mules as they line up to carry certain riders down to Phantom ranch. You can view the camera... More

The views from this area are unbelievable! You will think that it is fake! I highly recommend not only going to this point but trying to go down as far down the Bright Angel trail as you can! It is so worth it!

It's well worth the hike for sure. What an amazing view. We watched the sunrise here and it was phenomenal. I can't wait to come back!
