Navajo Point reviews
This is the location of the Desert View Watchtower, an interesting piece of architecture. You can also see off to the east, the beginning of the Grand Canyon as the Colorado and Little Colorado begin.... more »
Great view ~ not hikes here that we could find BUT we did find a good mascot on the ground on the side of the viewing wall~ hope you enjoy the pic and maybe find him ( we left him there) if you visit. more »
Outstanding, I visited several of the lookout points and this was the one I retuned to three times. Perfect for sunsets but not ideal for start gazing as the proximity to the road means you'll be disturbed by headlights semi-frequently.
Stop by here on my way to the Zion in Utah, glad I did. This place has gorgeous views of the Grand canyon. Less crowded then the South rim. In my opinion the views here are just as spectacular as the south rim.
