Oh how I wished I'd checked out Lipan Point ahead of time during my stay at Grand Canyon. Lipan Point is off the beaten track and not accessible via shuttle bus and as a result, there aren't many crowds, if any, 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.

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.
