You feel like you are on top of the world. You can ALWAYS see for miles and miles. Hold on to your children when they get out of the car!

Amazing views of the canyon, with several trails to walk down. The restaurant on site gave good service and lovely food at a reasonable price. There is also a snack bar offering sandwiches, hot dogs, ice creams etc. The ice cream tasted nice but didn't seem to be frozen properly so was more like a moose or yogurt and was... More

Visited on December 23, 2016, just after the fog had lifted. Even without the sun highlighting the contours of the landscape, this is a beautiful location, well worth a visit (and right next to the historic El Tovar Hotel and Hopi House).

very nice views from Bright Angel Point. There is also a trail which you can go dowstairs. Till the river it is about 5 hours (1 way). But you can also make shorter walks.

After our visit to the Grand Canyon West Rim we proceeded to the Grand Canyon South Rim in Arizona. We were welcomed by lots of snow, accumulated from a recent snowstorm. The Grand Canyon South Rim is a National park and is better organized and preserved. We stayed in the Bright Angel Lodge for the night and it was affordable,... More

If you can get here before the coach trips arrive, or after they have left, this is quite a nice view point, but during the day it is packed with people who have got little time at the rim and want to "Do Everything", so can be a disappointment. You can't see the river from here, but it is still... More

Took some great photos of mule deer and big horn sheep at this spot. It was late in the day when the big horn sheep showed up. Not very busy on a Monday.
