  • Grandview Point is located between the Desert View and the Village on AZ-64. This was one of the best views we saw, and you'd be silly to pass it.  more »
  • Very nice point, but by a little further to climb and scramble is it just more beautiful. be very careful for the steep precipices of course. But very worth it!

  • The views are great, as almost everywhere. From this viewpoint the trail starts, apparently recommended only experts.

  • 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.
