Friday, April 13, 2012. A strong cold front is moving in this afternoon, much like the one shown in this photo from April 1, 2012. NPS Photo by W. Tyson Joye. Yaki Point and the South Kaibab Trail Parking Lot are CLOSED to private vehicle traffic. You will need to ride a free park shuttle bus to access this scenic overlook.

This is the shortest scenic bus route and the only access to Yaki Point, the South Kaibab Trailhead and the Yavapai Geology Museum.
