You have to drive here as the buses don't go this far. It is our favorite vista. Listen for the rapids from the Colorado River! There are other pull offs on the way to this point which are well worth a few minute stop.

I only give this 5 stars because there are no bad views at GCNP but there are other stops that have better views and color of the canyon. This is the area that had a hotel back in the early days and was one of the very 1st places where there was a viewpoint back in the stagecoach days. If... More

A truly outstanding view! Grandview trail takes off from this point into the Canyon. This trail is not for anyone who is afraid of heights or has balance issues. It is very treacherous in places. For experienced hikers though, it's a maginificent trail into the Canyon, full of wild flowers in the spring. A nice day hike down to Horseshoe... More

The hike on the Grandview Trail, descending from Grandview Point, placed us midway down the canyon with a great view of the river below us, and the canyon walls above on all sides. The Horseshoe Mesa was a great place to camp out. We love learning about the old mines and hotels in the area!

This viewpoint, about half way down Desert View Drive, was one of my favorites. It gave a beautiful vista across the canyon to the North Rim, although its views weren't quite as wide as those at Hopi Point or Desert View, my two favorites.

This is yet another amazing spot to soak in the views from an awesome natural feature on earth. GCNP offers many stunning scenes to see, and Grandview Point is definitely worth lingering for some time.

The first major stop after entering the Desert view entrance. Probably the best view of the entire canyon.
