Lipan Point

Lipan Point

About: Desert View Dr, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ 86023 928-638-7888

Description: SOUTH RIM. Many visitors claim that Lipan Point offers one of the most spectacular Canyon vistas in the entire park. Westward views seem to stretch outward forever, and Canyon walls present a tapestry of colors and textures. The Colorado River cuts through the deepest part of the Canyon near here, and sunset views are incredible as well. Far below the rim, cradled by the river, is the Unkar Delta, a rich alluvial accumulation that supported the farming efforts of early Native Americans.

Hours: Daily Sunrise-Sunset
