“Don't Miss This One Out - It Will Surprise you”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

I was surprised to be the only couple getting off the shuttle here. Perhaps the other all felt that it would be more of the same and were saving their energy for Hermit's Rest but I thought this stop was excellent. Twenty feet further along from where the tarmac ends you feel like you are alone in the wilderness. The glimpses of the river are good and the view down the canyon has that wow factor. Well recommended

“Great Views of the West Rim”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

This was the best stop on our West Rim Sunset Tour. If we had not had an incoming snowstorm, I have no doubt it would have provided a spectacular view. Everything was there but the sun. Even without it is the views both east and west were spectacular. The most unique sight here is the river and clear views of the rapids. There is a set of rapids directly in front of Pima point. You are a mile above them and they appear so little. However, our guide told us they we 10 feet high at the river. It is the last stop before Hermits; however, I would go here to see the rapids and sunset.

“Great place for the sunset”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Pima Point is less crowded than some other spots on the West Rim drive. You can see the river below and it has great views for the sunset.

“Expansive Canyon Views”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Pima Point is accessed along Hermit Road and is the last major viewpoint before Hermit's Rest. Hermit Road is accessible only by free shuttle or the Rim Trail most of the year. Views from this viewpoint are expansive in all directions and one can see the Colorado River below. Despite the expansive views, we liked some of the earlier viewpoints better; perhaps outstanding canyon views were starting to become routine by the time we made it out this far.
