“THE place to stop if you have limited time”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The title says it all.

We were fortunate to have both a car and enough time to stop at every single overlook in the park, and Lipan Point was, by far, the very best.

Unless you have an in-depth interest in the geology of the area, skip the visitor center. It seems like every single tour bus stops here, and the parking lots are usually crazy busy. In addition, the walk to the viewing areas is significantly longer (although still not at all bad in the grand scheme of things) than many of the other areas.

Lipan Point has amazing views, easy parking at most all times, and short walks to viewing areas. Don't miss it!

“Lipan Point South Rim”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Lipan Point is one of the best view points on the South Rim of the Grand. The views are amazing. We just sat an watched as the lighting kept changing the colors of the canyon walls. It is truly a national landmark.

“great”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

great spot to see sunrise and sunset. if you walk left whilst looking at the canyon there are a set of rocks on which you can sit and it gives you an even more beautiful view.
