  • The views are AMAZING and the paintings and history of the NAVAJO in one stop make this a "must-see" on your way to the Canyons!  more »

  • The majesty and scale of the grand canyon belies belief. Not sure if it's frowned upon but if you scramble downhill from the a public viewing area a bit you'll get a more intimate view of the canyon and escape the din of milling tourists. Great for taking in the sight without distraction
  • Navajo Point is one of the stops you can make along Desert View Drive to the Desert View Watchtower. This is the closest stop to the watchtower, just a few hundred metres away. What is nice about the Navajo Point viewpoint is that you can see the watchtower on the edge of the canyon. This allows a great appreciation for the construction of this Historic National Landmark building while jointly admiring the outstanding landscape views of the Grand Canyon. We really enjoyed this particular view point for this reason and would highly recommend making this particular stop in route between the Desert View drive between the Grand Canyon Village. Note: The Desert View Drive is 25 miles long. Make sure to allow 2-3 hours minimum for the 50 mile round trip drive in order to adhere to the speed limit and to allow time for viewpoint stops.
  • This tower gives you beautiful views of the Canyon and the Colorado River. Definitely try to make it up to the top! It's worth the hike and tight spaces on the stairs to get up there. There's also a little rooftop access on the first floor that offers great views as well.
  • Beautiful view. Lots of parking available. No hiking required.
  • It was a little crowded but I was able to park close so my wife with her ankle in a cast /boot was anle to enjoy the scenery.
