Check out the sights from one of the Grand Canyon's best viewpoints, Lipan Point. Located on the South Rim, the spot affords magnificent views of the Unkar Creek area in the inner canyon. Take binoculars and try to spot rafters on the river. The vantage point also serves as a trailhead for a long and fairly easy hike popular with tourists. Always exercise caution when entering the canyon due to dangerous weather and wildlife.

  • When retuning to the visitor center from the Desert View Watchtower, be sure to make this stop. It is a great view of the canyon. And, if you are there during migration season, this is a good point to...  more »

  • The view here never gets old. This year on my birthday I witnessed the most incredible lightning storm and got some of the best photos of my life. This was the icing on the cake for what has been an amazing two week vacation in Arizona.
  • Beautiful spot. Great view of Grand Canyon. However, concerned for young children under 18 years of age. Saw a few going to edge of canyon. Others walking on rock formations beyond barrier's. Parents just watching them. Crazy. A woman fell off the cliff the previous week. And these kids tempting fate. I'm giving it 5 Stars ONLY for the beauty. They really need a ranger or someone in authority present in these view areas.
  • Great view,absolutely fantastic location. Magnificent!
  • Very nice views. Easily accessible. Amazing!
  • Awesome scenery. A must see in person.
