  • This tower not only provides a wonderful vantage point to look out onto the South Rim, but itself is also beautiful inside and out. I loved the Hopi-themed pictographs inside. Definitely worth a look.  more »
  • It's at the eastern end of the Grand Canyon. So far, i went around while standing at the viewpoint one by one, so the scenery does not change much anywhere, i think it was better to turn back more in front I thought.

  • Ironically, this is not the grandest view of the Grand Canyon. But it still amazes. I noticed another trailhead here that I would love to hike. The view of Sinking Ship is interesting. Reminds me of the Titanic going down.
  • Grandview Point is one of a handful of stops you can make along the Desert View Road from the Grand Canyon Village. This is the the location of a late 19th century hotel built by entrepreneur, Pete Berry hoping to cash in on the tourism boom that had started at the Grand Canyon. There is no evidence of the old hotel or log cabin that was here prior to that. However, there is an information board detailing its history. Further, this is the start of the Grandview Trail, which was used by earlier visitors to scale down the Rim into the canyon. This remains a popular hike today and is probably, a good reason to stop here beyond simply viewing into Grand Canyon to take in the splendid views If you are driving out to Dessert View Watchtower, this makes a nice stopping point. Views here are quite impressive. You can see the North Rim very well as well as glance in both the eastern and western directions into the canyon. You can take a few pictures, read the historical accounts provided at this stop and then be on your way east to other viewpoints along the way to the watchtower. Note: The Desert View Drive from the Grand Canyon Village is a round trip 50 mile drive. Make sure to give yourself at least 2-3 hours so you have enough time for a few stops along the way for various viewpoints, the Tusayan Museum and the Desert View Watchtower attraction.
