Desert View Watchtower Tours

Enjoy a sweeping panoramic view of the Grand Canyon from the historic Desert View Watchtower. The tower was built in in the early 1930s by architect Mary Colter, who created it as an homage to the watchtowers built by the native Anasazi people who once inhabited the area. The site consists of two circular buildings, one large and low, the other taller and more narrow, which stands five stories high. Inside the tower are petroglyph-style paintings.

Practical Info

The Desert View Watchtower sits at the East Gate of Grand Canyon National Park, overlooking the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon from the South Rim. Getting there takes about 90 minutes by car from Flagstaff, and it’s 40 minutes from Grand Canyon Village.
