We came in on the south side but exited the park through the east entrance. Highly recommend driving along the east rim of the canyon. We believe some of the best views are on the east rim with fewer tourists. The watch tower near the...More

This was our best viewing of the canyon. Arrived before 9 am and had the entire place to ourselves. The canyon was highlighted by the morning sun and the colors and shadows were amazing. Don't miss this drive out to Desert View!
