Closer to the foreground of Pima Point lies the deep gorge of Hermit Creek, with its red canyons creating a sharp contrast with the blue of the sky on a clear day. The canyon’s walls rise above the floor of the canyon, creating the adjacent points – Cocopa and Yuma Points.
A closer look at the cliffs reveals a narrow strip of lush green vegetation that thrives along the lower end of the creek. This green oasis stands out amongst the rugged cliffs and canyons west of Pima Point. Other views include various sections of the famous Hermit Trail as it cuts across Cope Butte and proceeds to encircle Travertine Canyon.
The Ninety-four Mile Creek is located directly opposite Pima Point, and its waters flow all year long. Just like Hermit Creek, Ninety-four Mile is easily identifiable by its corridors of vegetation. Other attractions to the east include Monument Creek, the Granite Rapids, as well as the Alligator. The latter is a cluster of rock formations whose rugged texture and shape give it a vague Alligator-like appearance from above.
Pima Point’s location on the way to Hermit’s Rest makes it an idyllic spot to rest and unwind before getting to Hermit’s Rest. Hermit’s Rest is home to amenities that include a café for refreshments, restrooms, and a gift shop.
Whether you would love to enjoy photographing the canyon’s jagged edges or would like to enjoy a cup of tea while overlooking the canyon, or perhaps linger long enough for sunset, Pima Point is a must-visit spot in the Grand Canyon National Park.
