Lipan Point lies half a mile north of the main scenic drive, reached by a spur road that climbs 80 feet to the parking area, on top of a small summit that would have a 360° view were it not for the pine woodland on the east side. The starting point for the 8 mile Tanner Trail is located a short distance back from the parking area. The point looks down over Seventyfive Mile Creek and its tributaries, which run beneath a thin ridge connected to Escalante Butte, and join the Colorado between two of the over 100 sets of rapids on the river - Nevills and Hance. Just downstream of Hance Rapids is the start of the inner canyon gorge, where the Colorado first cuts in to the prehistoric Vishnu Schist.
