Grandview Point
Grandview Point

"This is found at the southernmost point on Grand Canyon's south rim and reached by a one mile side road, and looks out over a wide bend in the Colorado half way between Desert View and Grand Canyon Village. This is also the point furthest from the river and so with the largest area of intervening buttes and ravines; the Colorado is 4 miles distant, and the cliffs at the rim are generally less steep than at other, closer overlooks, allowing a relatively easy trail to descend into the canyon (Grandview), though this does not go all the way to the river as the granite cliffs of the inner gorge are too sheer."
