Grandview Point and Trail

Grandview Point offers stunning views of the Grand Canyon from the southern rim. Grandview Trail also offers incredible views as it winds down the slope to Horseshoe Mesa, or the river if you have what it takes. The hike takes quite a long time and you can never bring too much water on this hike. Down on Horseshoe Mesa are the remnants of the Last Chance Mine which used to extract copper during the early 20th century. Most of the mine shafts have been blocked at the entrance (except for one filled with bats).

The closest highway to Grandview Point is AZ-64, which takes about seven hours to reach from San Diego.
