The Arizona Strip is one of the most magnificent stretches of country in the world. It is home to the Grand Canyon, truly one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders. Millions have visited the more prominent and accessible overlooks to gaze over the downward-reaching spectacle that truly is a grand canyon. However there are a few overlooks that considerably less people have ventured out to see. These lesser known locations are not less known because they are lacking in beauty or sensation. They are lesser known due only to the fact of accessibility and convenience. The Twin Point, located at the west end of the northern rim, is just one of these hidden overlooks.
The Twin Point overlook is less known no doubt due to the obscure and remote nature of its location. This back country ramble is no venture for the faint hearted and ill prepared. The reward is great but so needs to be the preparation.
The trip out to Twin Points is just under 100 miles from I-15. The road is long, rough and often hard to follow, however if you do make it to the end of the trail the reward it great. From the Twin Points overlook you can see across and see the Grand Canyon Skywalk, north-east up the Grand Canyon or west down towards Lake Mead. From this point you truly feel on top of the world.
