Yaki Point

Yaki Point is a scenic viewpoint located on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park.

While traveling along Desert View Road, Yaki Point makes for an amazing stopover with its breathtaking views of the Canyon.

Yaki Point is located about five miles east of the Grand Canyon Village, close to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center. Access to the point is not permitted to private vehicles, so visitors either need to use the shuttle bus or go hiking from the parking area on the main road.

As the furthest eastern point along the Kaibab Trail Route, Yaki Point provides a unique perspective of the Canyon. Part of the reason for this is that unlike Yavapai and Mather Points, Yaki is not located on the same headland as the other two.

To the east, visitors at Yaki Point get to enjoy the stunning views of Cremation Creek, with a closer look revealing that the creek runs just below a long ridge that connects to Newton Butte. Look out for the spectacular mesas and buttes that dot the landscape. To the west, the panoramic views include a great length of the South Kaibab Trail as it leads to Cedar Ridge. Other views include portions of the Tonto Trail and the last few miles of Bright Angel Trail.

Early risers and sunset chasers will appreciate the glorious views of the sun as it rises and sets every day. An idyllic location for photography, there is no better place to capture postcard-worthy shots of the Canyon than at Yaki Point. The Canyon’s vivid colors, coupled with the magnificent views, make this lookout a must-visit when exploring the Grand Canyon.

For hikers, this is a great way to discover the Canyon’s hidden gems. Shuttle bus services that connect Yaki Point to Pipe Creek Vista, as well as Mather and Yavapai Points, are ideal for families. These services are available all year long, and visitors can board and embark at different stops as they wish.

Yaki Point is located near Mather Point to the west and Shoshone Point to the east.
