About: Hermit Rd, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ 86023 928-638-7888
Description: SOUTH RIM. Set just inside the south entrance to the park, Mather Point often serves as introduction to the Canyon. First-time visitors are struck by the scale and immensity of the chasm, and some have even been known to fall to their knees and weep, overwhelmed by the spectacle. Named for an early director of the national park, the overlook affords views of one-quarter of the entire Canyon. Often crowded throughout the day, Mather Point also offers terrific sunset vistas. In addition, it’s close to Canyon View Information Plaza, the source for Grand Canyon guides and details.
Hours: Daily Sunrise-Sunset
