Great views.

The views are great & are different at different parts of the day. When the shadows hit the canyon it gives it a different picture of scenery. Recommend this spot.

My family of four woke up early to catch the sunrise here at we were not disappointed. It was incredible and they were many places here to watch from. I would recommend bringing a blanket to sit on and to wear a sweatshirt because it is very chilly and a little windy in the morning. However I would recommend getting... More

We took an early bus at about four in the morning to make sure we arrived in plenty of time for the sunrise, good choice as over the next couple of hours we watched the canyon slowly change colour as the sun gradually rose over the horizon.

I did not think this lived up to its hype. Could be because we were there when there were thunderstorms and could not watch sunset. Did not spend much time at this look out point.

The orange line dropped us off, it only took about 10-15 minutes from the main shuttlebus stop (no switching required). The location is the highest point that the busses can take you. There was a great view of the West, North and East. By sunset, about 100 people had accumulated, but there was plenty of room for everyone, and the... More

Outstand views of the canyon...again different shading from the sun that gives you a very distinct color of the canyon again

We came out to Yaki Point in late June, we walked as far as we could on the Rim Trail then took the free shuttle bus the rest of the way. Private cars cannot access Yaki Point, at least not at this time of year. It was very hot but I am glad we came, Yaki Point has stupendous views... More

We reached yaki point at the dawn of the day and with very few people around, probably it gave the best serene view of sunrise over the Canyon. . The dance of shadows with the raising sun and the clouds was worth a scene to remember

Down a bit from the South Kaibab with great views to the east and north. This outcropping is one of the few stops on the Orange Shuttle. It's hard to hike here from the visitor area but, once here, you can meander east toward Shoshone Point; probably with few other hikers to meet on the way.

Place really does speak for itself. Dress a tad warmer than you think, between the altitude and being further north.
