Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a lovely walk of about two miles rt through pine forests (great when it's 90 degrees!) opening up to a spectacular point with picnic tables and restrooms, which can apparently be booked for weddings and parties. During our walk of about two hours, we saw maybe three other couples and two families. Heaven!

For some reason there’s no sign marking the trailhead, but your phone gps will find it. There’s a mile long, flat, easy walk through beautiful pines to Shoshone point. It is a staggering view, nearly encircling you at the point itself. There’s almost no one out here, either, when we went, so it’s like having it to yourself. Not to be missed.

Shoshone Point was truly a hidden gem. Inside Grand Canyon National Park but far away from the crowds. We GPS’d to a small parking lot. The hike was mellow, through mostly shaded trails, pretty flat, and brings you to a breathtaking viewpoint over the Grand Canyon. Definitely a great option if the steep trails are difficult for you!

This hike is an absolute must! It is a pleasant walk through pine trees to get to this spectacular view point. Excellent from which to watch the sunset. Honestly - my favorite hike. It’s also short and sweet. Just one mile in and then one mile out.

Don't want to go down a cliff? Don't want to fight the crowds for a spot on the rim? Want to sit on cool picnic tables and have a potty at the end? DO THIS: Coming from the South Entrance: take 64 East, park on the right at mile marker 244, head east and hike for 1/4 of a mile (on the main road) and turn left into a service road blocked by a gate. Keep going.

Congratulations! The fact that you clicked on Shoshone Point means that you know something most of the millions of visitors to Grand Canyon don't know. Sitting out at Shoshone Point essentially in solitude was probably my wife's and I most memorable experience from the Grand Canyon.

Shoshone point is unmarked but there is a small dirt parking lot that maybe holds 10-20 cars. You leave your car behind and then you take a flat hike to the lookout. Interestingly, Shoshone Point is not entirely desolate as there are some picnic tables and when we visited there was an event taking place at the facilities.

I would recommend packing a lunch and sitting out on the point and just let the majesty of the canyon overtake you. Even though there was an event taking place we could hardly hear them as the point is about 50 yards away and we had the point all to ourselves.

Sitting in solitude above the Grand Canyon is something that needs to be experienced by everyone in their lifetime, and Shoshone Point provided me with that experience and it is something I will never forget. Places like Shoshone Point are why we travel and I can't recommend it enough.

There is a small but adequate unmarked parking lot for this trail. The location of the parking lot is about a mile east of the Yaki Point roadway. You walk about a mile on a flat, dirt road that is closed to cars, to Shoshone Point. As most people do not know about this point, there are very few people here, and it is very quiet with stunning views.

It's actually a very nice place but I wanted to downgrade it and maintain its "hidden" status before the IG crowds discover it.

As others have said, Shoshone is a beautiful place to go. The walk through the Ponderosa pines is so peaceful. It's an easy mile walk. We went at about 2 PM on a Monday and we saw only one other person on the hike in. When we got to the end of the trail where the picnic tables are there was a large group of elk just hanging out under the trees in close proximity to the picnic tables. We stayed for a couple of hours and the elk stayed too. After you reach the picnic tables there's a walk out to to the point. It's not very far, but if you have young kids or any mobility issues be very careful. The view from the actual point is indescribable. Pictures do not do it justice. You just have to go. Don't go to Grand Canyon and skip this walk. GPS took us right there. It's an unmarked parking lot but not hard to find. GPS Coordinates are Latitude: 36.0447055°N Longitude: -112.0596114°W. I just told Siri to navigate to Shoshone Point and was taken right there.

If you want a place to see the sunset that isn't packed with a bunch of tourists this is the spot. The views are amazing. You walk out to a point that gives you almost 360 degree views. The point is at an unmarked parking area on the north side of the road between mile marker 244 and 245. You'll see a metal gate and a sign that says permit use only.( this is for people that rent the facility out, however, it seems to deter a lot of tourists away). Park and then walk about 1 mile to the point. It's nothing more then a dirt road, but it's pretty as you go through the ponderosas.
Great gem and a must see.
