The view is epic, but it is also the busiest as it is the closest overlook to the main parking area. It is the first canyon view for the majority of the people coming to the park. Get on a bus and spread out a bit to see the different overlooks. It's all amazing.

I went on a day trip from vegas. It is a long way but possible.

There is walking and great views.

The visitor centre was closed which was a disappointment.

The Grand Canyon is truly one of the natural wonders of the world and the view from Mather Point is unbelievable. It costs $35 to enter the park in a single vehicle for up to a week which is worth it even if you only spend a couple of hours there. The view truly takes your breath away.

Arrived there in time for the sunrise... Extremely cold so kids were thoroughly chilled. Very windy so wind jacket important.

This is one of the viewpoints in the Grand Canyon closest to the Visitor Center.

There is a $35 per vehicle entrance fee to the Grand Canyon National Park. There are no toll fees for using any of the roadways from and to the Grand Canyon National Park (Google Maps shows toll fees, but there is no toll fee). Just pay the entrance fee.

All viewpoints are free. This viewpoint has restrooms. Not all viewpoints have restrooms, food, and souvenir shops. All viewpoints have parking spaces.

(The photo with a green heart pendant is a Memorial pendant with my son's ashes (the white part that resembles an angel's wings) who passed away June 2023.. he was supposed to come with us here in Grand Canyon to celebrate my birthday)

Hope you take a magnificent picture of the canyon from this viewpoint!

Be safe 😊

This was a great spot for a sunrise or an overall view of the Canyon. I wouldn't recommend it for the sunset. Try Mohave or Pima Pt instead for that.

Good place to see the sunrise. Just have to get there early as does get busy. It is a popular site as it is near the car park. Plenty of other less busy places to visit.

Best view if on a short trip but be prepared for sharing the view with a lot of visitors even in the winter in the middle of the day
