Yaki Point is the only scenic viewpoint on Desert View Drive that is not accessible with a private vehicle. It can be reached using the free Kaibab/Rim Route (Orange) shuttle, departing from Grand Canyon Visitor Center.
Here the view of the canyon opens up to the east, with the Desert View Watchtower visible in the distance. A popular view for sunset and sunrise, the lack of private vehicles provides a bit more solitude than other canyon vistas.
