  • Very crowded tourist spot but not without reason. It is beautiful here, especially with the sunrise and sunset.

  • The views are spectacular no matter which way you look. Its breathtaking! It's also close to the Visitor Center with all needed amenities. Part of the Rim Trail that is a must see

  • We walked from the visitor center to El Tovar hotel. It's an easy walk. The path is paved and the views are spectacular. Lots of photo opportunities. Crowds were light on the early November Sunday morning when we visited the park. Caught the park shuttle back to the visitor center.
  • Great places to see! Different everytime, always beautiful!! I've seen it with snow, no snow and the sunset!! Pictures don't do it justice... Absolutely beautiful!
  • Another think gone from the bucket list. This is definitely worth the effort. Was amazed at how imense the view, had to back-up for fear of falling in.
  • If anyone hates this place, there may be something wrong with them. Even with pushy tourists and rude people abound, this vista was life altering to look at. This photo with my phone does it no justice, even my professional photos with my camera do not do it justice.
  • Such an amazing view. The park itself is well maintained has many great resources.
