If you only have time for a short visit on the South Rim, catch one of the very efficient shuttle buses on the orange route and go to Yaki Point (just stay on the bus until it reaches Yaki Point). This viewing site was our second favorite because just like “Pima Point” (red shuttle route), this viewing point of the... More

You cannot drive up to YAKI point in your car. That is one of the things that makes this point so special. My husband and I rented bikes and throughly enjoyed the view. We talked to a patrolman who was ticketing cars who didn't follow the rules. Hey, they are serious, park patrons--no cars here.

We hiked the .7 mile to Yakima Point and staked our "spot" for watching the sun set over the Canyon. So many people doing the same thing! Interesting to hear so many languages. All the world is fascinated with our Grand Canyon! The sunset was amazing - the shadows, different colors of the rock formations. But most amazing was AFTER... More

Take the orange shuttle route to this point for spectacular shots at sunset. It's very pleasant and serene <if you miss the crowds :) > We enjoyed the coolness of the waning day and the view....awesome.

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.
