“Delightfully private, exquisite views and light, perfect.”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

You can drive to the trailhead and hike the 1 mile out to the point....or, you can rent it from the NPS for an event and your guests can drive out!
Most GC weddings take place out there, we had a family reunion. Xanterra did an outstanding job catering the event (we chose the Western BBQ menu with big steak, salmon and vegan), and the food was terrific and service was great. My only complaint is that we didn't care much for the Grand Canyon brand of wine, and you are not allowed to upgrade or bring your own to an event. Stick to beer! Non-alcohol punch was good, too!
The point is a little treacherous, so any acrophobics will need to stay at the pavilion area. I noticed that the flat boulders were all bolted, so I felt extra secure watching the five condors soar below me as the sun set in the west and the full moon rose in the east. Sweet.

“A "Peace" of Heaven and Earth”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

This short, flat 1 mile hike through the forest lead our family of 4 into a place never experienced anywhere else. Aside from one ranger leaving his meditation spot, we were the only ones to be found on the trail and at the most magnificent destination point - Shoshone Point. This point is often used for wedding sites, family reunions, and other special events upon request; otherwise, it is the park's best kept secret. The rock formations lead us to an open edge overlook. This is a must see and be sure hold onto your children. Shh...Don't tell anyone else about this top spot.
