this was a little scary driving up to the lookout - if you're afraid of heights, then let someone else drive. Down the road from the Watchtower, this was well worth the time to stop and take in the incredible beauty of the canyon.

We were able to enjoy a very serene view of the Grand Canyon without a ton of people around. Once we got out of our cars, we found a crevice and hopped down. Pretty soon, we were surrounded by the canyon and were out of sight of anyone else. It was a wonderful experience.

this point comes on the way to desert view. You go to that point , find a place to watch sunset. You will get an awesome sunset view from this point.

We were leaving the Grand Canyon to get to a Phoenix business conference, when we asked a ranger for the best view of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Without hesistation he mentioned Lipan Point. Lipan Point is the next to last vista point of the Grand Canyon along the Desert view trail heading toward the eastern entrance/exit to... More

I loved the Grand Canyon and when I view things I always want to interact. Sometimes I'm a little frustrated that I can't like when deep sea diving and the fish won't play unless they are whale sharks or large turtles. BEWARE: the following is not intended as advice and you should not attempt any excursions alone and you do... More

We drove to Lipan Point from the Grand Canyon Village. It was about a 30-40 minute drive. You have to leave the main road and drive out to the point; it extends further into the canyon than any of the other points we visited. It is on a high promontory. There is a great view of the Colorado river. In... More

Completely awesome. I visited in January, so not much crowd. I can imagine in summer, this lookout point is jam packed with people. The colors are just amazing. Huge panoramic overlook. This is one of the stops off Hermit's Rest Road.

When entering the "South Rim" from the East entrance gate, this would be one of your first viewing experiences. The panoramic view from this location really sets up your views from the other viewing locations. I would have to be more eloquent with my words to really describe this place. It is simply an amazing, awesome experience to view these... More

The title says it all. We were fortunate to have both a car and enough time to stop at every single overlook in the park, and Lipan Point was, by far, the very best. Unless you have an in-depth interest in the geology of the area, skip the visitor center. It seems like every single tour bus stops here, and... More
