  • Located on the east side and end of the road feeling, this is a great hike to avoid lots of other people. We started around 900 am and had most of the parking lot and trail to ourselves. It took us 2....  more »
  • If it is a partly cloudy day the shadows make for interesting photos. Lots of places to sit and enjoy watching the canyon change.  more »
  • This is another great place to stop, get pictures and stretch you legs. The views are great. Walk around and see things from other angles.  more »

  • The most breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon can be seen here. When you enter the Grand Canyon National Park, make sure you fill up your tank before entering because it's a very large park and you can drive for Miles! There's also a ton of hiking trails and the view is breathtaking! There are a ton of wild animal that you will see. It's definitely something you need to see with your own eyes!
  • Not a good place to watch the sunset, but it does have a nice view. If you want to do a tiny bit of climbing, you can get out onto the second boulder to get a better view. Otherwise, your view will be slightly obscured by a giant rock.
  • National Park Grand Views are the best if you don't mind crowds. Just like this one, they always provide a great view. This stop also offers a trading post, a cool overlook, a historical landmark, restrooms, and food! A beautiful place for a stop.
  • One of the best views in Grand Canyon ! And they have some tables for you take your lunch and enjoy !
  • Great photo opps. Sunset view better at other sites, but still beautiful. Amazing colours. A must stop on your park visit.
