  • I took the Shuttle to the Abyss as this made a great place to start hiking a segment of the Rim Trail toward Mohave Point. The view into the chasm was spectacular at this location! Unlike other parts....  more »
  • One of the more prolific vistas along this tour with a clear view of the depth and expanse of The Grand Canyon. A definite must see of the many vistas offered in the park.  more »
  • A must see stop on the Red Route for Hermits Rest. Take the Red Route Bus and make sure to get off at The Abyss. Most people make the mistake of not exploring the area to the left and right of the bus stop. Do not do this the best views are to the right and left of the bus stop location. Get off the bus take some time to absorb all the beauty here. Great views, flora and fauna abound. Great place to watch the White Throated Swift's dancing in the wind.
  • Amazing views. Must see!
