Mather Point remains as the prime spot in the canyon from where most new comers gaze the grand view. You start your way from the South rim and reach the point. The viewing area is quite extensive - the point has two narrow, railed overlooks built on projecting rocks, various other view points along the rim in both directions, and to the west, the Rim Trail offers more vistas all the way to the next point. You can literally see layers and layers of history laid out one on top of the other.
