Breath Taking

Good footpaths, shops and eateries. But more important than anything else is the breath taking spectacular views of the canyon. Outstanding!!

Bright Angel Point Trail begins near the South Rim lodge and is an easy hike to the end, but-----if you are not sure footed or are afraid of heights DO NOT take this trail. Several points along the trail are somewhat narrow and with no railings between you and 8000 feet down, could prove to be a challenge. For those... More

NO really. Go to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is spectacular and far less hot and crowded. You own't regret it.

Very nice trail from the lodge. Gets you out over the canyon. Great place for sunset or any part of the day. Has some railing. But be careful not to climb the rocks.

Get a reasonably priced drink and snack or browse the gift shop. Watch out for the cheeky squirrel in the gift shop

The walk out to Bright Angel Point is easy, the pathway is very good and the entire way the scenery is truly breath taking.

But, many do and climb to the very edge of oblivion (not me). Like the canyon itself, it is very easy to be totally transfixed and careless because of the incredible grandeur. It's like looking at a beautiful painting over and over again.

A moderate hike with views of the Grand Canyon on both sides. It can be steep and very narrow at times but it is exhilarating to reach the end point. It may not be a good trail for those who are afraid of heights because there are points were you can see steep drop-offs on either side of the trail.... More

This view is over the top. No matter where you are, the view is over whelming. People are very polite, from all over the world. Parents MUST watch their children, no matter how old. under 18 of course, maybe even then. Trail takes you to small tunnel in canyon, longer walk to canyon floor.
