The drive to lip an point is well worth it. It is still the best place to watch the sun set, plenty of space at the overlook and plan on taking you camp chairs so you can sit relax and enjoy the view...

We stopped at this overlook on our way to the Desert View at eastern section of South Rim. This was yet another great view of the Canyon and Colorado River. Great place to stop for more photo opportunities! We did see an elk herd near here on edge of road so be on look out for the wildlife!

Wow. We picked this spot on a recommendation from a Park Ranger over the phone and are we happy that we did! This part f the South Rim is not connected to another by any trails and therefore not too any people stop here to look. I could not imagine a better place to have gotten married.

On my list, that would be the other view point not to miss after the Visitor Center. The road climbs to get to Lipan Point.

I liked the Desert View better, but this is close and the stop was worthwhile. I would recommend stopping to check it out.

There are several Viewpoints on the South Rim but this viewpoint was my husband and my favorite. We watched a couple of rafting groups go over rapids and also watched as they set up camp for the night.

It's pretty much impossible to see the Colorado rive from the main village area of the park. Lipan Point provides a great view of the river below for those who are trying to get pictures of it.

Such a great stop to enjoy the views of the Grand Canyon! This is our favorite scenic stop on the South Rim. The panoramic views here are incredible, as it's the highest point on the South Rim. However, that being said, be cautious if you stop there during a lightning storm & your hair starts to stand on end (if... More

I wish I had known that the desert View Drive/Tower offered the best views of the Grand Canyon before I visited all of the other well advertised points. Lipan Point gives you a great view the river as well as parts of the desert. It is located near Navajo Point near the end of the Desert Drive. The weather was... More
