Pipe Creek Vista

Pipe Creek Vista is another popular viewpoint located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. A tour of the Grand Canyon National Park would be incomplete without enjoying the scenic views here.

The scenic, mile-long point is an excellent option for visitors in need of some tranquility.

This pullout is easily accessible using the Desert View Drive, which is a scenic route that leads to the Grand Canyon Village on the popular South Rim. Desert View Drive is a 25-mile road that is loved for its scenic sights, among them, picnic sites, developed canyon viewpoints, and the Tusayan Museum. The Pipe Creek Vista is one such pullout.

It marks the first pullout when traveling from West to East on the Desert View Drive. There are two ways to access the viewpoint – either by using the complimentary shuttle bus that follows the Kaibab route or by using your own vehicle.

From the vista, unobstructed views of Pine Creek are visible, which is a key canyon located between the Bright Angel Trail and Kaibab Trail – both popular trails in the region. Other attractions that are easy to spot include the O’Neill Butte and the Brahma Temple.

The O’Neill Butte stands out, thanks to its towering structure and its rugged sandstone surface. Easily one of the most photographed geologic features in the canyon, O’Neill Butte is easily accessible using the South Kaibab Trail.

On the other hand, the Brahma Temple is a dominant feature of the Grand Canyon and is easily viewable from Pipe Creek Vista. Brahma Temple is one of the most challenging hikes in the park and is only recommended for seasoned canyon hikers.

Pipe Creek Vista also allows easy access to the Canyon Rim Trail, where hikers can get to the nearby Mather Point 1.3 miles away. Other attractions nearby include Yaki Point and Duck on a Rock.
