Cape Royal - Photo by John Fowler

Cape Royal is the southernmost viewpoint on the North Rim, and has the widest panorama of any Grand Canyon overlook. This breathtaking view takes over almost all of the horizon - from Marble Canyon in the north, south over Palisades of the Desert, and westwards for many miles towards the main South Rim visitor area. Quite a long drive is needed to get there, as the point lies 53 miles south of Jacob Lake and the US 89 junction, and 15 miles from the north rim visitor center at Bright Angel Point; this latter section is along a road that is quite narrow and winding in places as it climbs a wooded valley.
