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.

We read on a travel blog to get up early to watch the sun come up over the Grand Canyon at Yaki Point. WORTH IT!!!! We drove into the park after dark, so didn't get to see the canyon on our way in. Work up early and rode the bus out to Yaki Point. We took our crazy creek chairs and some warm layers and walked out to a good look out point to wait. It was drizzly and overcast, but we still got the most incredible view (beautiful blues and grays) as the sun came up. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Yaki Point.

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.

Took the orange bus from the info center. I turned to the right (East?) and took about a mile + walk along the rim. I found fairly soon I was alone, so quiet, a slightly cloudy day, incredible to watch the scattered rain and clouds move through the canyon and a raven sail on the wind. I was thankful for that moment of solitude!

Overlooks along the Grand Canyon's East Rim Drive are much less visited than those on the west with the exception of Yaki Point, at the end of a 1.5-mile side road that starts two miles east of U.S. 180 road junction, near the entrance to Grand Canyon National Park. If you are an early morning or late evening person, Yaki Point is the ideal overlook to enjoy a sunrise or sunset over the Grand Canyon. It is located in a perfect location for shooting picture-perfect views of the dramatic and vivid color changes as the sun rises and sets over the immense beauty beneath it. Because it juts out over the Canyon, Yaki Point offers different views than Mather Point, Grandview Point and Yavapai Point, all of which occupy the same promontory and look over similar features. Yaki Point offers panoramic westward views that encompass the end of the Bright Angel Trail, a section of the Tonto Trail and a fine view of much of the South Kaibab Trail as it descends along Cedar Ridge and O'Neill Butte. It is the easternmost stop on the Kaibab Trail Route that also serves Pipe Creek Vista and the Canyon View Information Plaza at Mather Point. The view to the east includes Cremation Creek, running beneath another long red ridge centered on Newton Butte. Because of congestion, public parking access at Yaki Point is prohibited. However, visitors are well served by the Free Grand Canyon South Rim Shuttle Bus System. The Orange Service Route connects Yaki Point with the Grand Canyon Visitor Center parking lots.
