At 8,803 feet above sea level, Point Imperial overlook treats travelers to the northernmost view of the Grand Canyon. Here, the Colorado River spills from the spire-like walls of Marble Gorge. To get there, take the Cape Royal Scenic Drive. From Grand Canyon Lodge , go north three miles on AZ 67 to the paved park road that juts off to the right. Drive five miles to the three-way intersection and turn left at the sign for Point Imperial. Continue three miles to the lookout point.
The Grand Canyon is a gorgeous place to visit. The best place to see it is on the North Rim. I have been there several times, and it was more beautiful each time.
The last time I went it was raining. That was definately worth the trip. There was fog down in the canyon. Then the fog started to lift and it was absolutely gorgeous. I would definately recommend going there even on a rainy day!!
We stayed at the lodge at the North Rim. It was very nice and you should consider this. On the way out we drove to Point Imperial and Royal Point. If you were able to see only ONE of the North Rim sites, it should be Imperial. You won't be disappointed.
