Enjoy a spectacular view of the sunset from Powell Point. Climb the top of the formation, and observe as the sun falls behind the red rocks in the distance. Witness how the light hits the canyon, and how it changes hues, from red and orange, to dark brown. Read the plaques that stand next to the path, on the way to the point, and learn about the man it was named after, and other interesting facts. Wear hiking shoes as the terrain can be difficult to manage.

  • You need to take the red shuttle to get to this point. Worth stopping at and can walk to the next or just wait for the next shuttle.

The view is fabulous.

  • The best thing about this point is the small path that extends into the canyon. There is a raised platform at the end of the path that allows a very good 360 view of the area.
  • Views and more views! This is on the red route and is a great place to starting hiking the rim on the south side of the park.
  • Absolutely stunning view from here!
  • Free shuttle service within the park, great spot to look into the grand canyon!
  • This is a must stop for people that want to stand at the edge of the Canyon and get the feel for the grandness of the Canyon. Excellent photo stop.
