Arrive 30 minutes before sunset if you wish to photograph. Times are printed in the guide. The return shuttle will be very crowded and you may have to wait 30 minutes. It can be VERY cold and windy so dress in layers, with a warm hat and coat.

This area is closed to private vehicles and shuttles pick up passengers up to an hour after sunset. During those days where sunset and moonrise are within one hour of each other, it is wonderful to watch both from this location. After sunset, it is great to just enjoy the stillness and watch the brilliant bands of color appear along... More

Very interesting. Saw a Condor, so when we saw one later in our trip, we were able to identify it ourselves

Our last stop of the day to watch the sunset & didn't disappoint. Only accessible by the shuttle bus service.

This is where we started out at 5.45 on September 12th this year- we were lucky to have clear skies and a beautiful sunrise which made it a spectacular hike.

Travelled by park bus to watch the sunset from here and, in spite of a lot of clouds due to intermittent thunder storms and heavy downpours it was worth the effort of arriving early to get the best position as it did get crowded in the 15 minutes leading up to sunset.

You can only reach Yaki point if you go by shuttle (Yellow line) or are a permit holder. Another spectacular view that will cause you to call out WOW!

This is the place to see lots of elk. We saw a huge male elk along the road and took awesome video. You have to take the shuttle to visit the point and can walk back to the kiabab trail stop if the weather is not too hot. Good views and not very crowded.

This was spectacular. Many places to take great pictures and enjoy the peace. Room to spread out. Take the yellow or orange shuttle.

This is a prime spot for tourists, especially at sunset. It was gorgeous, however I would recommend going to the Desert Canyon section for less crowds.
