Yavapai Point sunset-52

Yavapai Point sunset-52

Yavapai Point has excellent views but limited parking and officially, vehicles over 22 feet are not permitted. It is an easy walk west from Mather Point, and like Mather has a visitor center nearby - the Yavapai Observation Station, which sells books and displays information about the geology & history of the Grand Canyon. Yavapai provides perhaps the best panorama of the three points on this part of the south rim as it is the most northerly, and the closest to the Colorado River, allowing for unobstructed views up and down the gorge.
