Yaki Point, Grand Canyon National Park

(240 reviews on the web)
Lookout
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.

  • Shuttle service begins very early and makes seeing sunrise possible — got thee by the skin of my teeth. Would have preferred to have been at the Point longer before sunrise so check timings first but ...  more »
  • Take time to take in the view. Absolutely breathtaking. Take the shuttle bus or hike. No private vehicles allowed. Worth the views.  more »

  • One of most popular stops on the free Grand Canyon tram. Less crowded overlook than the main one by the Visitors Center. May want to ride to Yaki Point to start your viewing
  • If you wish to get away from mass amounts of people along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, take the shuttle out to this point and take a nice hike along the top of the rim. Great views for photography. Also, there is a hawk migration count in the fall that is very exciting.
  • 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.
  • Great place for the sunsets at the Grand Canyon. Desertview is also a great place of you wanna go further east.
  • One of many awesome lookout points along the south rim.
