Powell Point, Grand Canyon National Park

Enjoy sweeping views of the Grand Canyon from Powell Point, dedicated to an early explorer who ventured along the Colorado River through the spectacular scenery. Shuttle buses will take you up to the point, which remains relatively less crowded than other spots in the park. Sunset and sunrise are particularly memorable, but no time of day disappoints with these vistas. Powell Point is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Grand Canyon National Park Edition.

  • Awesome viewing area with spectacular views in every direction. We visited in late March and the temperature was perfect. We enjoyed mid 60’s with almost cloudless skies. Grateful to not be subjected to the summer inferno. Great tour guides around with plenty of information to share about the Park and the sights. No shortage of history in this park. Amazing to see millions and millions of years of geological progression all in one spot.
  • Nice vista point, with a monument to an early grand canyon explorer. There's also a Masonic monument commemorating a 3rd degree performed here.
