“Sunset can't be better”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a bucket list item. It is around 30 minutes drive from grand canyon village.Hike down a little bit to see one of the most spectacular sunset in Grand Canyon. Reach at least half an hour before sunset.The Colorado river looks beautiful and colors are amazing.

“go to see the river”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

you get a different angle of the canyon -- worth the 20 min drive frm the south rim hotels. It's right where the colorado turns north -- great to see what one river can do.

“Majestic”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This particular point offers a far off view of the tower although it's less then a 5 minute drive from the tower. This point has got something else to it as well It is one of the most deadly points on the East Rim drive because you are going up hill you kind of get the idea of How someone could go off the edge at this point. See Death in the Grand Canyon. Aside from that this is the starting point for tanner trail and has unparallel viewing of the Canyon. During the summer at Sunset there is some incredibly beautiful sunsets out on this point and at the watchtower.

There are many points to view the Grand Canyon from but this one on the way to Desert View is one of the best. Check it out!

“Amazing view during sunset”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

It's not the best spot to watch sunset. Despite of that, it had an amazing view during sunset. I got my first impression of Grand Canyon here. It looked surreal. I stayed after dark for star gazing too. It was freezing but worth it. It's also not too far away from the entrance, which eliminated the time I needed to drive in the dark when I left.
