Lipan Point, Grand Canyon National Park

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.

  • One of the best points to view the grand canyon. Just walk out on the point and see the beautiful views. Do your best to come early before sunrise to avoid crowds. late evening is another good time. Bring your camera.
  • The best point from the route we took at the canyon. I recommend swinging by this one.

  • We watched sunset here and it was very good. Gets crowded so get there early for parking and a good spot.
