First time to Grand Canyon. I had read about Mather Point, but nothing prepared me to see it in person. So many tiny people close to the edge to witness this magnificent view of Mother Nature.

Great spot to visit on south rim. Outcropping so very nice at sunset or sunrise as you have views into canyon both east and west. Come early and stay late there will be a crowd

Situated right next to the visitor centers and along he rim trail, Mather Point offers an incredible view of the canyon. It's a sight that has to be witnessed in person. Absolutely incredible.

This is one the main viewpoints on the South Rim. It is busy but if you're patient you can still get a clear uninterrupted view.
