Colorful canyon walls and the Colorado River stretch into the distance beneath a blue sky.

Desert View Drive

Parking - Auto, Scenic View/Photo Spot

Just a few minutes west of Desert View on the Desert View Drive, Navajo Point offers a great view of Desert View Watchtower, as well as panoramic vistas to the west and a view north up the Colorado River. Watch for rafts on the Colorado River, winding far below the highest viewpoint on the South Rim at 7,461 feet (2,275 m).

With a dramatic view to the west, and accessible by car and a very limited number of smaller RVs/Campers, Navajo Point is a popular spot for sunset.
