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.

    Stunning place. One of the most visited national parks in the US and you will know why if you go there. There are a lot of things to see and to hike to, so ideal for a multi-day itinerary. Spending one or more nights at the park will allow you to appreciate the night sky.

    These are breathtaking photos of the Grand Canyon South Rim. We are in the Grand Canyon Village just west called the Yavapai Point. You can actually see the Colorado River from this point. Extremely beautiful viewpoints for photography and they do have a geology museum there.

    One of the viewpoints located along the south rim of the canyon and dedicated to John Wesley Powell, whose expedition in 1869 was the first through the Grand Canyon.
    There is a monument erected to Major Powell located at the point. As with all stops along the canyon this area affords spectacular views of the canyon.
    This point can be accessed by walking, bicycle, or the free shuttle. The road is closed to private vehicular traffic.

    first time making it to point sublime. Have a 2005 Lexus GX. All stock with a new set of BF Goodrich KO2 tires. Stock size. The forest road had a few rough spots but made it fine. a mile or two into it, I aired down my tires to about 20 psi which helped a lot. Met some others on the road who said this was the worst they ever saw the road. Got there around noon, and there was a 'trail approved' jeep grand cherokee. He said he took the alternate route because of the shape of the road but he found it beautiful. that said, the short route was beautiful as you go through open fields and aspen groves. fall colors.

    We did not take the train, but did check out the depot and the train on display. Eventually, the train arrived and we took some pictures. It's a nice change of pace.

    Ideal for the sunset. This is not as crowded as other view points but yet offers equal or even better view of the canyon especially during the sunset time. Ample parking spaces available. Recommended if you want to enjoy the sunset in more tranquil setup,

    The cabins at the ranch were awesome. There were two separate rooms with queen beds and two baths. Unfortunately, most of the activities at the ranch were still shut down due to Covid 19. We still very much enjoyed ourselves. Played cards on the porch and watch an amazing moon rise. The only concern was the food options. There was only one place open to eat and we luckily got there in time to catch supper before it closed. This place was so cool that if we go back with will just take food and enjoy the cabin.
