Must see for sunsets!

A short, easy hike from the Lodge, this spectacular, paved walk (10-15 minutes) puts you up close and personal for amazing views, especially at sunset.

If you art the Grand Canyon North Rim, this is a must. The point takes you 1/4 mile into the canyon with great 270 degree views. If you are here, please take the time to do this.

Lovely easy walk to see some truly marvellous views over the canyon, but be warned there are long drop offs which are not fenced, not brilliant if you have a fear of heights!

After early breakfast we walked to this point for a pretty view at about 7:30am. Convenient as it is close to El Tovar, Bright Angel Lodge, etc I suggest walking a few 10ths of a mile down the trail of the same name to get a taste of hiking into the canyon

The views are wonderful and you can retreat to the Lodge if the weather changes. We walked and got very wet when a storm came through, so be prepared especially in July

It's not the sort of walk people who struggle with a few hills will enjoy and those who have issues with height may also struggle, but if you can manage it the view from the point is fantastic. It was better at dawn as there were less shadows in the canyon but don't let this discourage you from visiting at... More

Bright Angel Point is one of points that should be visited. This one is close to the village on the South Rim.

I have been twice to both, the south and north rims and in both occasions this short trail took my breath away the most. It is quite awe inspiring and impressive to see the great depths of the canyon from both sides of the trail and with no railings. My sister felt dizzy and afraid. Not for those afraid of... More
