Guano Point


viewpoints & hikes

One of the most dramatic viewpoints of the Grand Canyon is at Guano Point, boasting stunning 360-degree views of the Canyon and what’s left of the $3.5 million aerial tramway system built in 1957.

Your journey begins at Guano Point on Highpoint Hike. This railingless trail delivers you to the remnants of a historic tram that stands today as a monument to man’s attempt to mine the canyon. The tram once stretched 8,800 feet across the canyon to a guano mine. As you gaze out across the expansive canyon, let thoughts of the brave souls who attempted to mine nitrogen-rich guano for fertilizer from the guano cave discovered in 1930 fill your mind. For 20 years, these miners rode the aerial tramway to cross the river spanning 7,500 feet with a vertical lift of 2,500 feet.

After you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the area, stop by the Sky View Restaurant. You can savor American favorites while enjoying the 360-degree views of the Grand Canyon.
