Enjoy sweeping views of the Grand Canyon from Powell Point, dedicated to an early explorer who ventured along the Colorado River through the spectacular scenery. Shuttle buses will take you up to the point, which remains relatively less crowded than other spots in the park. Sunset and sunrise are particularly memorable, but no time of day disappoints with these vistas. Powell Point is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

A beautiful overlook jutting out into the canyon named for early explorer John Wesley Powell who first traveled down the Colorado River through the canyon in 1869. There's a nice memorial to Powell... more »
One of my favorite places to view the canyon. The colors are simply amazing especially at sunrise. Words can never do this place justice. more »
I guess every Vista point is just breath taking in it's own way. Watched the canyon lit up in shades of red during sunset last month. Just take the red loop to reach this spot.
Awesome viewing area with spectacular views in every direction. We visited in late March and the temperature was perfect. We enjoyed mid 60’s with almost cloudless skies. Grateful to not be subjected to the summer inferno. Great tour guides around with plenty of information to share about the Park and the sights. No shortage of history in this park. Amazing to see millions and millions of years of geological progression all in one spot.
My favorite point in the South Rim of GCNP. Astounding views. A must visit. Take the red bus route to reach here.
Really nice if you get there before sunrise and watch the sun come out.
Neat little narrow walk out to a point. Cool minimal monument to climb also!
