Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 200+ 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 visited for sunrise, got there at about 6:10am. There were many people already set up for photos. The colors were amazing! We absolutely loved it, once in a lifetime experience! 
  • This is the place to go for sunsets! Romantic and Very beautiful! be at the vistor center 30 MINUTES before sunset! look up sunset time! 
  • Get here early for a good spot to watch the sunrise, good for sunset as well. People were at the edge taking photos scaring me to death. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nature's Manifest, friendliness of this tribe's working during tis stop. Best I had my best friend and lover.
  • Our first stop on the motor coach tour we had. The view was a bit rough due to the weather but the inverted cloud layer made for an amazing scene. There was plenty of standing room for everyone and no one was pushing for photos.
  • Amazing views, but no path to walk down to other points. You have to take the bus back to the previous point to begin the hike down.
