“Impressive dropoff”
Review of The Abyss

Reviewed April 21, 2012

We visited the Abyss on our South Rim mule trip. The Abyss stop itself was enjoyable as we had a break with water and a snack. There are better points on the west rim such as Hopi and Pima point to view, but have the vertical drops you get to see at the Abyss. The points allow a wider and diverse view of the Canyon with more 270 degree views. However the Abyss much like the Village allows you to the vertical drop dramatically. If you tour the West Rim, make this one of your stops.

A little visited stop along the shuttle ride to Hermit's Rest. Well worth the 10 minute stop between shuttles.

The Abyss is a area along the Hermit road between Mohave and Pima Points and is only accessible by free shuttle or the Rim Trail most of the year. At this point, the Hermit road and Rim Trail are right along the rim of the canyon that falls away even more steeply and further than most other areas along the rim giving one the sense that they are looking into the abyss.
