Very nice view but overrated. Too many people go here and fight for "spots" for sunrise and sunset. If you walk a few feet away from here, you can get better views.

Takes you breath away. Its so beautiful. Also great place to watch a sunset or sunrise or both. But don't stop there, it keeps getting better as you ride the free bus shuttle to each beautiful stop.

as soon as we entered the park on our drive from Las Vegas, we drove on straight to Mather point for our first glimpse of the grand canyon... it did not disappoint...as evening was drawing to a close, the bus loads of tour groups left and it was a surreal moment looking at the panaromic view of all the rock strata from this view point.. must choose the time right as this point gets very crowded

This was a easy passed trail, and worth the hike but the Mojave point is the place to watch the sunset!
