Twenty-five miles east of Grand Canyon Village is the Desert View Watchtower near the eastern edge of the Grand Canyon. This spot offers its own unique vantage point of the spectacular Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. The drive along Arizona Highway 64 is scenic and sometimes mule deer or elk can be seen alongside the road.
