Quick Facts

Amphitheater, Scenic View/Photo Spot

Just a short walk east of Yavapai Geology Museum, Yavapai Point Amphitheater is a great place to take a photo, enjoy a park ranger program, and relax. Walk up to the railing and check out the rock samples embedded in the posts. Touch a piece of Vishnu Schist, dating back nearly 1.8 billion years ago!

During warmer months, Park Ranger programs about geology are held here. Inquire at the Yavapai Geology Museum for more information and times.
