Pipe Creek Vista, Grand Canyon National Park

#69 of 82 in Things to do in Grand Canyon National Park
Lookout · Hidden Gem · Scenic Walking Area
Take the paved path up to Pipe Creek Vista for dramatic views of the surrounding landscape at an elevation of 2,182 m (7,160 ft). The relatively easy and pleasant ramble along the rim takes about 30 minutes, and the sights from the top are well worth the effort. Unimpeded views of Brahma Temple, O'Neill Butte, and Pipe Creek make for excellent photographs. From there, more active visitors can continue farther along the Rim Trail to the South Kaibab trailhead. Alternatively, just soak it all in before catching the next shuttle bus back to the visitor center.
