Shoshone Point, Grand Canyon National Park

(5/5 based on 45+ 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.
