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.

Had to wake up at 0500 to catch the shuttle and go there before dawn. Sunrise is beautiful but far from impressive. I thought I wasted some time here

It's absolutely breathtakingly beautifull at this place. Trying to capture it on photo is tricky, especially the awesome sunset you can view here. When traveling to the canyon, try and plan for a sunset here, you won't regret it.

Best views on the South Rim. Only place the first day we were there where the fog burned off. Beautiful sunset. Must take the orange shuttle but that is easy and free. Do not miss it!

I took the shuttle bus there since Mather Point at that time was misted over,and was able to see the bottom of the canyon as it was clear. By the time I got back to Mather Point it was also clear..perfect timing.

Wake up early. Take the first or second shuttle of the day to Yaki point. Watch the sunrise. Take your time. Get there when it's pitch-black and stay until it's bright. The changes in the lighting over the landscape make it worth it. No picture will capture just how beautiful it is.
