Completely awesome. I visited in January, so not much crowd. I can imagine in summer, this lookout point is jam packed with people. The colors are just amazing. Huge panoramic overlook. This is one of the stops off Hermit's Rest Road.

When entering the "South Rim" from the East entrance gate, this would be one of your first viewing experiences. The panoramic view from this location really sets up your views from the other viewing locations. I would have to be more eloquent with my words to really describe this place. It is simply an amazing, awesome experience to view these centuries old vistas.
Highly educational for all age groups.

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!
