"Pima Point" Pima Point Tip by Yaqui
Pima Point, Grand Canyon: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Pima Point was named after a Native American tribe in south central Arizona whom Euro Americans admired as peaceful agrarians. In the early 1900s, the point was sometimes called Hermit Point and Cyclorama Point. In 1925, the Fred Harvey Company installed a cable tram from Pima Point to their tourist facilities at Hermit Camp, about 3,600 vertical feet below. It was believed to be the longest single-span cable tram in the United States, and was the only rim to inner canyon tramway ever built at the Grand Canyon. The camp was closed in 1930 and burnt to the ground in 1936.
