It's a short drive to the Lipan Point lookout, but well worth taking. A gorgeous perspective on the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. There were low railings at this lookout. It was very busy on the day we visited.

We stopped here around sunset time and the views were one of the best stops along the Grand Canyon. Each stop is better then the last.

Lipin point is a great place to go and take sunset pictures. Plenty of parking and it's not as crowded as some of the other spots.

Definitely worth pulling off to this lookout point, rather than wasting time at Desert View. Gorgeous views, a short step from the car park.

Every single part of this park is amazing. Why would you not stop at every pull-out area you had available to you? Yes, some are better than others for different reasons, but every single one is still a 5/5 because they all showcase the incredible beauty of this canyon. Enjoy each one, pick your favorites, and still realize they are... More

This viewpoint gives you excellent views of not only the canyon, but the Colorado River. It is exceptionally nice, plenty of parking and has guard rails, which is a must for me.

We went for sunset here. Absolutely amazing view. Can see the Colorado river. Highly recommended. I would consider going towards the "left" side, past the gated section for a beautiful viewpoint.

Lipan Point is thought to be the first place where Europeans came in contact with the Grand Canyon. I can't imagine what they thought suddenly coming upon it without knowing it was there. The views are outstanding and the canyon stretches out before you endlessly below and as far as you can see. The observation area is fairly small and... More

This was on the eastern route of the Desert View almost to the tower- and it was our FAVORITE view of the Grand Canyon! Don't miss!

Not many tourists stop here, maybe the parking area is too small. So many awesome views. Just breathtaking. Watch your step. Just so tempting to climb down to get a better view. .
