Easy to get to from the visitor center, but don't get fooled by the signs saying "5 minute walk". Depending where you park, it is a steady uphill slope to the point. However, I did see one gentleman in wheelchair as he was coming down, so it is not a hard slope. Views in about 270 degrees let you see what seems like a lot of The Canyon, but it is only enough to make you want more.

Mather Point was my first stop at Grand Canyon National Park. It is only a short walk from the South Rim Visitor’s Center. The view is absolutely jaw dropping! Pictures of the Grand Canyon simply cannot do it justice! I was fortunate to arrive on a cold day with light crowds. Also, the cliffs were covered in a light snow which added to the beauty of the scene before me. This is by far the most accessible location to see the Canyon.

We almost didn't stop here as we spent most of our time in the village, but we were glad we did. Great views and a beautiful area. You paved path goes out over a rock outcrop and gives you great views in 180 degrees. The ampitheater is nearby and a nice place to sit. This is a short walk from the main visitors center.

Spectacular views of the Canyon. If you only have time to visit one or two observation points, Mather and Yavapai Points are probably the best and most convenient. However, they are also probably the most visited spots as they are near the Visitor Center unless you visit during the off season or during a pandemic and it is 34 F like it was when we were there in late October. There is a cool ledge that extends out into the canyon with no safety barriers just west of Mather Point. Try to see other vistas like Mohave and Hopi Point along the road to Hermit's Rest or Moran or Lipan Points along the East Rim Drive.

The views at Mather Point were amazing and just a short walk away from the parking lot. Here you can connect to the rim trail and walk whichever direction you like. Of course, even in the offseason there were people on the vista points along the way (including dummies risking their lives for the perfect IG shot...).
