You have to take a bus out to this point. You cannot hike, but the shuttle buses run often & are free.

We felt this point gave us a good view of the east side of the grand canyon. Some of the points the landmarks just keep being the same. To get to this point you have to ride the shuttle. Their is no car access or walking trail.

Yaki point is really a great place to see the sunset over the Grand Canyon South Rim, the colors on the canyon are truly brilliant. You have to take the shuttle or hike there.

Very nice Sunset, peaceful....Yaki point gives you the 'man meets nature' feeling (particularly when it's not crowded). You'll be amazed to see the Sunset hues on Grand Canyon rocks. I would suggest that you take the Shuttle (rather than your car) to go to Yaki Point.

Now that you have to take a bus, or walk to this viewpoint it's not worth the extra effort or time you will spend to get there. If you're on a tight schedule you will not be missing out on anything by not going here and visiting the much easier viewpoints in the main area of the park. If you... More

The best spot we found for the sunset. But harder to get to as takes more than one bus but well worth it.

Yaki Point is one of the best places for sunset photography. Its expansive views of the canyon are breathtaking. The rocks across the canyon flame with red as the sun sets, starting about an hour before sunset. Well worth the effort getting there. Cars cannot get to Yaki point at certain times of year, so you have to use the... More

Only reached by bus so nice point out of the way. Come early as it fills quickly. I traveled with my parents who are in their 70s so glad we went early and they had seat right on the edge to watch the sunset. After the sun set, people cleared out quickly. We stuck around until it got dark and... More

We awoke early so we could see the sunrise here. It was easy - jet lag from Boston was our friend! It was worth it, too... the play of light as the sun illuminates different strata, with interfering structures casting and removing shadows, the overall intensity of light on the colored rock and the astonishing depth of the canyons -...
