The Grand Canyon national park is host to approximately 6 million visitors a year. This may make it sound like an overly crowded tourist trap, but the canyon is large enough to still have its secret spots. Shosone Point is one such location, a perch at the end of an unmarked dirt road, about a mile east of Yaki Point. For hikers, Rim Trail is a 13 mile path (most of it paved) that runs across the South RIm. North Rim is less visited than South Rim, but features great vistas and trails, such as Roosevelt Point. There are more such “hidden” wonders of the Grand Canyon worth seeking out.
- The Grand Canyon is already famous for being a famous hole in the ground in Arizona. Now it is adding to that fame by celebrating its centennial anniversary.
- Every year six million people visit the Grand Canyon and if one is unfortunate, he would visit on a day he would feel like he is stuck behind them.
- Shoshone point is one of the best places to find privacy in the Grand Canyon. It begins from inside a small parking lot north of Desert View Drive.
“The campground is an easy walk from the historic Watchtower, a trading post, and snack bar – so you have some creature comforts while scandalous sunsets and star-laden skies seem to exist only for you. Desert View is open 13 April through 13 October on a first-come, first-served basis.”
