This is the one lookout point that even during the winter time you are not allowed to drive to. There is a small parking lot where you can leave your car and walk to the end of Yaki Point. This is a very nice walk...More

What an experiance! Breathtaking, amazing view. We went by shuttle bus. Be prepared for a bit dangerous place, I dont reccomend taking small kids here, it is steeply. But for sure, worth seeing.

This is the point where you can access the mule trail to phantom ranch. A great but challenging hike. You can also hike the rim between another point fairly close. Great views, great trails, and several mom elk.

The Yaki Point is on the Orange shuttle bus line. It is a breathtaking view point. If you have the time and stamina try the bird sighting option
