  • The site of the original park office, this scenic overlook offers spectacular and occasionally terrifying views of the deep canyon and river below. On a seasonal (May-Oct) road. During winter, when the road is open to ski and snowshoe traffic only, this area marks the beginning of the area open to primitive camping. While open and flat, this area has little to no cover, so over-the-snow campers may want to camp further west or on the south side of the road.
  • Beautiful spot to watch for raptors and sit at the picnic tables and eat lunch!
