Shoshone Point, Grand Canyon National Park

5.0
#23 of 38 in Outdoors in Grand Canyon National Park
Go for a short, 1.6 km (1 mi) long walk to reach a promontory offering views of more than 180 degrees over the Grand Canyon at Shoshone Point. The point offers basic facilities, including picnic tables and fire grills, but bear in mind that using them requires permission from the National Park Service. After a pleasant 20-minute stroll on a flat, car-free dirt road, then through open ponderosa pine woodland, you'll reach the rim of the cliff, where you can enjoy the scenic views. If you pay attention and keep quiet, you can see majestic elk walking past you.
