A must stop on the way to hermits Rest and a nice picture spot. We stopped at all the stops out to Hermit and each one was worth the time. I would start early in the day for better picture light.

This is a beautiful view of the canyon and very crowded. The biggest downside is the parking is extremely limited and this is a very popular attraction. You can park along the side of street however you have to be very careful and park off the street itself, inside the white line. If any of your tire is on the... More

I hiked witha friend to a rocky ledge jutting out from the wall of the canyon. This place was perfect for viewing the vastness of the canyon and a peaceful location to sit. People were hiking further below on the trail, and reported that it is a tough trail with narrow spots. I recommend Grandview point, just don't hurry along,... More

Although it´s only a glimpse, this point is one that gives a bigger picture on the size of the Grand Canyon South Rim. As the name says, here it´s possible to have a view that goes really distant in the horizon, showing the many geological layer of the Canyon. There are some parts of the point protected with a iron... More

All of the viewing points are excellent but at Grandview Point there are paths to take down the canyon.

Awesome viewpoint, not too far from the lodge and campground. From this forest overview you see for an incredible distance across a wide section of the canyon all the way to the distant desert. Breathtaking drops, hang on to your kids.

Grandview Point is a vehicle pull-off east of the Visitor's Center. The Canyon is really wide here and gives you a good idea of the size. There are no 'bad' views of the Canyon and this is just one of several stops on the south rim. There are some safety-railed areas at Grandview but most of it is open and... More

Grandview Point is a magical place where the canyon is so wide and the Colorado River seems to have run wild through the millenia moving back and forth cutting gorges all over the countryside. It is just awesome to see the vistas. Good place to stop and not just look at one place, walk to the east and west and... More

This is probably the 2nd best stop on the east rim from the Visitor Center. There is a nice hiking trail that heads down for the more adventurous.

Simply put, this is the best and most informative viewpoint on the south rim. We stopped here after the lookout tower and came back before we left for Bryce. This is a must stop.
