Mohave Point, Grand Canyon National Park

Located on Grand Canyon's South Rim, Mohave Point offers beautiful panoramas of terraced cliffs that encircle the Abyss, sandstone plateaus, and meandering Colorado River. One of nine lookout points along the rim, ideal for watching sunset and sunrise, this spot actually consists of several individual overlooks and is never crowded. If you look directly below the point, you'll see a red sandstone mesa with jagged edges resembling alligator's horny scales. The site is accessible from scenic Hermit Road by foot, bicycle, and free shuttle bus.

  • The scenery was great and I took a lot of pictures here. I went with my mother, my sister, and my two children. It was hot in summer, but in autumn and spring, it was refreshing and pleasant to walk.

  • Mohave is the most amazing place in the park to watch the sun rises or set. You have 360° views of the canyon and amazing shots of the Colorado River from above. It's truly the perfect photo. Book yourself a sunset tour to finish out the day, you'll be glad you did.
  • Another one of the stops where one can enjoy gorgeous views of the Grand Canyon. I would say that you should stop at them all. Be sure to pack snacks and fluids - you will want both! Please, please take your litter with you and help preserve the the view for others.
