  • Our stay here was short. There are better choices. You take the red shuttle to get here. The draw is the shear drop which does little for me.  more »
  • The abyss is without doubt, one of the four points of observation, that can not miss. If they are doing the walk, the previous point Mojave Point is 1.8 km, but the trail is easy to move and can be done without problems. Having the wall "free fall", the vision is very special and here is where you can see the 914 meters in height (or depth). Don't miss out on this viewpoint, is impressive. Best regards

  • The abyss is located on the hermit road and is accessible by shuttle bus. From this point you have magnificent views into the depths of the Canyon

  • One of the best overlooks! Take the bus here and take a 1 mile hike to the Mojave stop.
  • This was my favorite view on the south rim. I sat here for an hour and just gazed at the sights.
  • 3000-foot vertical drop at your viewing pleasure!
  • Great view but be careful is dangerous
  • Great views. We walked the rim trail and this is a good view point of the canyon.
