I did not get to any point that had a bad view. Each point is set up at a different location and angle of the Grand Canyon. Some points were just you and nature, others had other things going on in the area but NO Point was bad. Not I am not sure (except on the red line) how many... More

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.

This lookout is a little further from the village but is well worth the trek. Provides amazing panoramic views and gives a wonderful look at the largest and heaviest rapid in the Colorado. To the rights you can even see the Painted Desert. Magnificent.

A terrific view of the canyon and the Colorado River - vast and beautiful! Loved the perspective it gives of the size of the canyon - still incomprehensible, but provides some idea.

If driving from Zion or Bryce yoiu'll enter the park via the East Entrance. Take time to stop at desert View, Lipan and several other vistas less traveled than the Rim Trail
