Pima Point is one of the best places on the rim to see, and sometimes even hear, the Colorado River. The distant roar of Granite Rapids far below can be heard echoing up the canyon walls on quiet days.

As you look west from Pima Point, take note of the 'Cataract Plains'. This incredibly flat plateau at 6,000-7,000 feet (1,828-2,134 m) is a product of many layers of rock eroding prior to the cutting of Grand Canyon.

The Greenway Trail continues from here to Hermits Rest, allowing bicyclists and visitors using wheelchairs to share the path with pedestrians.
