Description

Located close to Grand Canyon National Park with an outstanding view of the canyon, it is not hard to determine how Grandview Lookout earned its name. It is one of the original tower sites selected when the early Grand Canyon National Monument was planned in 1909. It had a platform tower before the Forest Service built the 81' Aermotor tower with 7' x 7' metal cab in 1936. A historic lookout residence is also located at the site.
