Lipan Point located in Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park can be found on the Canyon's South Rim. The Desert View Drive at the east end of the Grand Canyon Village is where the point can be found. The point also has a parking lot and a bus service that makes regular stops.
Tuweep or Toroweap Overlook provides a view of the canyon from three thousand feet looking down over the Colorado River. It is fifty miles from the South Rim and seventy miles from the skywalk at the Grand Canyon. There are only three rather long dirt tracks that lead to the area which is one of the most remote in the country.
The roads leading to the Lipan Point are uninhabited and wild four as few as sixty-two and as many as ninety-seven miles. There are minimal services and improvements to the area since the Park Service manages the area for this purpose. Anyone planning a trip to the Lipan Point should be prepared for a rough hike and take all the supplies that they are going to need for the hike.
The lack of services along the trails means that hikers should pack water, food, etc and be aware they are responsible for their own safety.
