A must stop overlook on your trek through the rim trail. If you're not up for a strenuous hike, i advise starting at Mather Point/Visitor Center and walking up to the Geological Museum.

Great views, but very crowded. You are best to park down the street a bit or take a quick drive and see some the same views without all of the crowds

The view was amazing! A little crowded but more than enough room for everyone to get a good view. Everyone there was super friendly and helped take pictures!

Suzi, that all depends on what you want out of your experience. My parents would drive by the sign to say they had been to a place but never truly experienced it, and there are a small handful of vistas to help you see the... More
