5/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web
Go for a short, 1.6 km (1 mi) long walk to reach a promontory offering views of more than 180 degrees over the Grand Canyon at Shoshone Point. The point offers basic facilities, including picnic tables and fire grills, but bear in mind that using them requires permission from the National Park Service. After a pleasant 20-minute stroll on a flat, car-free dirt road, then through open ponderosa pine woodland, you'll reach the rim of the cliff, where you can enjoy the scenic views. If you pay attention and keep quiet, you can see majestic elk walking past you. Use our Grand Canyon National Park holiday planner to arrange your visit to Shoshone Point and other attractions in Grand Canyon National Park.

  • See the Canyon without the crowds around you can and indeed it also manages to do a brisk little challenging but very impressive. If you arrive in Shoshone Point lying on the Desert View Drive in 5 minutes from the intersection with the road leading to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, parked before the bar closes the dirt road and get on their way for about 2 km to Shoshone Point. If by chance it was a special day and also many patrons there, follow the rim troves westward and don't be afraid to venture to another couple of kilometers through the paths beaten track because you will find at least another 4/5 sights really breathtaking and where I am sure you won't find nobody to disturb your eyesight.

  • This place is not indicated by road signs, in the usual guidebooks about it nor words, road (unpaved) landslide barrier. The whole thing is that a few hundred dollars here, it is possible to arrange corporate group outing. But for us, this place interesting to breathtaking views. The Grand Canyon is a very beautiful views from all lookouts but shoshone point. ... Parked in an inconspicuous spot road (preset point on the map), walk through the barrier and for 15-20 minutes reach not transferrable beauty place!
