The coordinates will take you to a precise location at a popular overlook along the South Rim Road and Rim Trail. Access is from the Bright Angel trailhead area where you can catch the shuttle that runs every 10-15 minutes, or hike the Rim Trail.
This location is said to be one of the most popular for watching a sunset or sunrise. We caught the sunset on a clear, cold, and windy March evening and it was fantastic. Be careful not to miss the last shuttle back unless you have a dark hike planned.
At the coordinates listed you will find a man-made "safety" structure signed and dated by two dedicated young men who worked for the National Park Service during the era of the 1st Manned Moon Landing and the Woodstock Music & Art Fair.
