Yaki Point, Grand Canyon National Park

(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Just a short, easy walk from the visitor's center, Yaki Point offers excellent views from the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Take time to stop in the visitor's center for maps and more information on the canyon. Park at the lot by the main road or the picnic area, and walk or take a shuttle bus to the vantage point. Its specific location offers views different to other popular points, including the long red ridge above Cremation Creek to the east. Sunrise and sunset are particularly spectacular here, when the orange sun and shadows play across the canyon and create stunning views. If you go in the morning, be sure to dress warmly and take a blanket to sit on.

  • We rode on the bike path from the visitor's center. Great ride!! Much less crowded than Mather. Great views. If you walk to the right beyond the railing, there's a few spots that make for great perspective photo ops for the adventurous.
  • Only way I can explain it is come see it for yourself breathtaking views
  • One of America' National treasures for good reason. It's is absolutes GRAND. You must see it in person to understand its sheer size. I picture just won't capture how majestic it truly is. There are numerous bathrooms, a lot of parking, paved trails and viewing areas as well. There are even opportunities to venture off the trail, away from the herds of people. Yes, you can find areas to appreciate its awe by yourself or with a companion.
  • This lookout is only accessible via bus. You cannot drive to this point.
  • Nature's Manifest, friendliness of this tribe's working during tis stop. Best I had my best friend and lover.
