On a recent trip to the Grand Canyon I decided to make the drive to Desert View Watchtower and viewing area. This is located 25 miles east of the main road (Hwy 64) into the park. The speed limit is 35-45 mph due to the curvy road and wildlife.
It is a very nice drive and at the end are more unique views of the Grand Canyon. You can climb to various levels of the tower and step outside for additional viewing and/or enjoy the view from the general area around the tower.
I spent about 90 minutes here and was glad to have made the trip. Well worth the drive (which isn't that long) and I would definitely stop here again. Highly recommend.
