“Good viewpoint”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is a congested area because of the visitor center's proximity; it actually becomes a bit confusing to find the viewpoint because of all the paths and signs everywhere. Other viewpoints to the east and west of here offer equally stunning views without the congestion.

The views from this point are great. Enjoy yourself and stay safe. The fall is a bit long. :-)

“Sunrise point”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

This is THE place to view the sunrise - many people will come by bus, so plan to be there early - 45 minutes before sunrise. It's awesome to see the night sky change over to the morning.

“Not the best viewpoint, but probably the busiest”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

I know why everyone stops here, 2 reasons: 1) It's the first place all the people driving see as they enter the park, so naturally they stop and 2) It is where there is a massive parking area for the tour companies so they all stop as well. Was the view any better? No way, you can barely see the Colorado River here, the sheer number of people make you feel like you are in a shopping mall. I recommend going to the East or West of the village.
