What can I see and do at Roosevelt Point?

  • Views: Named for Teddy Roosevelt, Roosevelt Point offers a somewhat restricted view of the Colorado River, with a greater amount of scenery available towards the north. You will see the flat plain stretched out between the Echo and Vermilion Cliffs.
  • Hiking: The easy-to-navigate Roosevelt Point Trail is short (only 0.2 miles long) and takes only 20 minutes to hike, but takes you through a lovely secluded wood, with some incredible views of the eastern canyon.
  • Picnicking: Just before you reach Roosevelt Point you can stop for a picnic lunch at Vista Encantada Picnic Area. Here you will also be awed by the spectacular views.
