Hopi Point Tips (6)

Eagle Point - Hopi

The houses of the Hopi shelter, storage and work and ceremonial practices.

The stone and mortar is coated with plaster and painted with whitewash. The clay is used to connect the strusture elements. This building technique allowed the Hopi to dissasemble or expand upon the existinct structure.

Sunrise at Hopi Point

For great views resulting from the play of light on the Canyon walls, watching the dawn sunrise is a worthwhile venture. From the Maswick lodge head to the Rim trail and head West about a mile or so to Hopi Point.

Catch a Sunset at Hopi Point

Sunset at the Grand Canyon is a spectacle to be seen. One of the best places to view the end of the day is at Hopi Point in the western part of the South Rim. There, the canyon opens up to the west and southwest, providing a superb foreground of buttes and gorges to create a palette of shadows and sun for photographers. Just don't expect to watch this spectacle alone -- watching the sun set is much more popular than the sunrise, for obvious reasons.

Hopi Poin/Hopi View; west rim

Hopi Point is about 7000 feet over sea level. This is for many the best place to watch the sunset. For one reaso, at Hopi Point you get a great view of both rims, south and west. Hopi Point is also where the free red bus shuttle has a return bus stop, and restrooms, very important for you to know.
