  • Wide open, big views and amazing scenes from this location. Soak in the views from Yavapai Point! Be prepared for crowds, as this is a popular spot. Still, you will not be disappointed.

  • This is the furthest east and north of the South Rim views. Each is different and worth a look. The Orange shuttle route goes to this area; private vehicles are currently not allowed.
