We drove here form Yavapai Lodge to watch the sun come up. You can easily spend a few hours watching the light change every few minutes, which completely changes the atmosphere of the whole canyon. After that, it's a short drive to admire the Lookout Tower, and after you've mooched around that their cafe will have opened and you can... More

Panoramic views in every direction and down to river with large S-meanders and delta, rapids, and tilted rocks. All layers visible here.

Affords a different view of the canyon area than you get from the el tovar hotel area. Lipan is at the Far East end of the canyon area and very worth taking the time to visit.

We were driving past Lipan point around 8 am. we didn't even know it existed until we saw the sign. We pulled in and where treated to what we thought was the best view of the Canyon at sunrise.

This is a great view of the canyon, definitely a must stop look out point. The drive to get to the point is nice and Parking is limited.

Stop at Lipan Point and Moran Point along the Desert View Drive (40km). Great views, and make Desert View Point your last stop of the drive - climb up to the top of the watchtower.

The 20 mile drive from the visitor center to Lipan point is well worth the time. The drive is beautiful, and you are likely to see large elk and deer. We were able to take close-up photos of a massive bull elk, and several large bucks. Lipan point offers a view that is ridiculous - absolutely breathtaking, no matter what... More

If you have your own transport head here for sunset. A little bit further out - we took our RVS, set up the tables right on the rim and enjoyed a sunset dinner! Great views of the river and the canyon without the crowds. Some great points to get that 'I'm really here on my own' photo and just enough... More

Picking a favorite place to look over the canyon is like picking out the best ice cream: it's all good! Try a little of each place.
