We hit this point in the morning on our way out of the South Rim area. The vistas will take your breath away. The morning sun was still casting the most beautiful colors on the canyon and we brought our binoculars and were really able to view the rapids down below. Almost makes you dizzy standing by the rail/fence!

Lipan Point has great views and is along Desert View Drive so you need a vehicle. At Lipan you have a good view of the river. Car park and information are available. This is one of the views I would recommend. Allthough the grand canyon is fabulous, after a couple of hours most of us will loose intrest. So better... More

Winter can be really beautiful. But between the altitude and the early morning rim wind, it is really cold out there on the points. I used a balaclava, neck gater and inner gloves with outer long mitts in addition to my body garments and heavy boots.

This look out is pretty epic! Each of the look out was unique on its own but something about this one is easily my favorite. It's just extra majestic in terms of view compare to others.

As we drov across the desert view drive we stopped off at Lipan Point. The views were fantastic, even though we had just had some rain. We seem to leave the rain as the turnoff, so whilst there was clouds hanging around it didn't stop us taking photos.

On the way to or from the East Gate, Lipan provides an overlook that gives a clear view of the river. No bus service so see it on way in or out

I had heard that Lipan Point was not so congested as the nearby Desert View, so we checked it out. Little traffic and a big canyon all for us. Recommend this to get some great river views and see, interestingly, the Colorado river almost beginning the Grand Canyon.

A point with its own beauty. I sat here for a while with my husband just admiring the beauty of the canyons.
