Description

Point Imperial is the highest viewpoint on the rugged, less crowded North Rim. The elevation here is 8803 feet, and the views are stunning. The scenic drive to get here is part of the draw, but from this lofty perch you'll also be able to see cliff walls up close with a unique perspective of the northern reaches of the canyon.

On the Road: Just steps away from the nearby parking.
