Located on Grand Canyon's South Rim, Mohave Point offers beautiful panoramas of terraced cliffs that encircle the Abyss, sandstone plateaus, and meandering Colorado River. One of nine lookout points along the rim, ideal for watching sunset and sunrise, this spot actually consists of several individual overlooks and is never crowded. If you look directly below the point, you'll see a red sandstone mesa with jagged edges resembling alligator's horny scales. The site is accessible from scenic Hermit Road by foot, bicycle, and free shuttle bus.

This was one of our favorite vista points along the South Rim. Spectacular views. The 1 mile walk between Mohave and Hopi Point is well worth experiencing. Easy to reach on the red shuttle. more »
We had a wonderful time so nice and clean.. the stuff is very friendly and helpful. Fantastic, stunning .
We were caught in a thunderstorm here and it was so awesome! The view of the wall of water coming our way was amazing.
