  • This viewpoint has received the name of abyss, because decreases the edge equal to several meters and gradually like in most other places. The view itself is however limited and therefore not quite as spectacular, such as the Pima and Maricopa Point.

  • The West Rim Drive is, in my opinion, underrated. It has just as amazing views without the amenities or crowds. It's also amazing to start seeing the canyon close up the farther you go.  more »
  • Another nice spot to see the grand canyon. This point if I remember correctly, you can see the Colorado River better.  more »

  • Very popular, sometimes crowded, view point.. Majestic. Much better and more beautiful than we've ever imagined. Just one personal comment: if/when you see pics, videos, movies don't forget that the actual colors widely vary depending on the time of the day, the weather conditions, and the season you visit. Conclusion: when you actually visit leave plenty of time to enjoy and you'll be very pleasantly surprised. Should be on the bucket list.
  • Best view point
  • Beatiful but a little crowded
  • One of the stops on the Red Route along the Rim trail. Take it all in. It is a photographer's delight.
  • One of the best overlooks! Take the bus here and take a 1 mile hike to the Mojave stop.
