this is about 10 minutes on the western loop shuttle bus. The whole loop takes 90 minutes! Offers a different perspective plus a chance to view the abandoned mines from afar.

This stop on the rim has an observation deck to climb up for a better view. It also has information about historical figures related to this spot. The views are amazing.

Like all the other points along the south rim, Powell Point has excellent viewing of the canyon. What makes this location unique is that it is also a memorial to Powell, so there is some history to be learned.
