Shuttle service begins very early and makes seeing sunrise possible — got thee by the skin of my teeth. Would have preferred to have been at the Point longer before sunrise so check timings first but really pleased I was up before 4:30am for the Shuttle.

Take time to take in the view. Absolutely breathtaking. Take the shuttle bus or hike. No private vehicles allowed. Worth the views.

This lookout point is only accessible via a shuttle bus. Not being a geologist, the view here is very good and is quite similar to that at Grandview Point. So if you are ecology minded, take the shuttle and visit Yaki Point. If you don't...More

So we got on the correct color shuttle but thought we were going in the opposite direction. By going to Yaki Point we continued our eastern rim discoveries. It is really worth the visit.

The area around here is a good subject for photographing the beginning of the trail and down into the canyon. The South Kaibab is a great trail for either getting down into the canyon quickly, or inner canyon photos with cliffs above as it runs...More

You take the orange shuttle to get here which works well. Good views with lighter crowds. Grand views

Everything in the Grand Canyon was breathtaking. Yaki Point was an easy hike from the visitor center and well worth it.

Yaki Point has some of the best views on the South Rim. It is the easternmost stop on the Orange Route and can only be accessed by shuttle bus or on foot. There are great views both directions. Don't miss it!

Can you drive to Yaki point or do you have to take a shuttle? Is it along the Desert View Drive?

Yaki Point is along Desert View Drive, and is the eastern-most stop made by the orange shuttle line. It is not open to individual cars. I think taking the shuttle is easiest, though you could also use the park's taxi... More
