  • 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!
  • 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.
  • We had driven to the Grand Canyon in anticipation of a coming storm. I remember the morning being particularly cold as we hiked along the rim awaiting the arrival of the sun. The skies were still overcast, but a small break in the clouds allowed a single ray of sunlight to shine through, illuminating a small portion of the rock faces below.
  • Very nice view point. Easy to follow trails, along with easy rules. Not to hot, as well as an indoor activities.
  • Very cool stop along Desert View Dr. Somewhat unique since it has a small trail that you can walk down to get some different views/photos. The trail seemed relatively safe to me but you obviously still need to be careful. Make sure to stop here and the Watch Tower at the east end.
