Located on Grand Canyon's South Rim, Mohave Point offers beautiful panoramas of terraced cliffs that encircle the Abyss, sandstone plateaus, and meandering Colorado River. One of nine lookout points along the rim, ideal for watching sunset and sunrise, this spot actually consists of several individual overlooks and is never crowded. If you look directly below the point, you'll see a red sandstone mesa with jagged edges resembling alligator's horny scales. The site is accessible from scenic Hermit Road by foot, bicycle, and free shuttle bus.

  • Great spot to get off the shuttle. Take the trail between the road and the canyon's lip and walk to the next stop (Monument Creek Vista). This is a wonderful uncrowded trail. Do it!

  • This place is easy to reach by the free "red shuttle". There is an overlook with stunning views of the Canyon to the North Rim.

  • This stop on the road is my favorite place for watching the sunset. It definitely has the best view of the Colorado river and watching the sunset was spectacular. Don't pass up this view on the south rim. Take the Hermits bus (red line) out to Mojave point and Powell monument for the best view of sunset or sunrise. The busses run every 10 to 15 minutes from the village.
  • Take the free dusk shuttle bus that goes all the way to Hermit's point but stops at 6 great locations along the way (hop on, hop off). Walk the rim trail to several vista points and marvel at the changing colors of the canyon walls as the sun descends. Not to be missed.
