  • Like all the other areas, this gave us lovely views of the canyon. It was a bit more packed but it was gorgeous. The watch tower and shop nearby made it even better and worth the drive.  more »
  • This is the location of the Desert View Watchtower, an interesting piece of architecture. You can also see off to the east, the beginning of the Grand Canyon as the Colorado and Little Colorado begin....  more »
  • Great view ~ not hikes here that we could find BUT we did find a good mascot on the ground on the side of the viewing wall~ hope you enjoy the pic and maybe find him ( we left him there) if you visit.  more »
  • Outstanding, I visited several of the lookout points and this was the one I retuned to three times. Perfect for sunsets but not ideal for start gazing as the proximity to the road means you'll be disturbed by headlights semi-frequently.
  • Stop by here on my way to the Zion in Utah, glad I did. This place has gorgeous views of the Grand canyon. Less crowded then the South rim. In my opinion the views here are just as spectacular as the south rim.
  • Pictures and words fail to capture what is present. The very latest camera will catch only the simplest representation of what you experience standing amidst the wonder that is sprawled out before you here. It is mesmerizing.
  • The splendor of God's incredibly beautiful creation is nothing short of absolutely amazing! One of the best view points on the south rim!
  • Incredible view of the canyon... Sunset must be also great here (same road as the watchtower)
