It's an easy walk on a paved trail out to Bright Angel Point. If the weather is clear, it provides an excellent view of the Canyon. The day we were there a Park Service volunteer was at the Point, giving explanations and answering questions. This is also one of the best places in the Park to view the sunrise or... More

We stopped for lunch at the Bright Angel Hotel. Good food and service. Take the time to notice the old logs and timber that the hotel is built with. The fireplace was under repair at the time of our visit but we did sneak a peak at the old fireplace. Great views from along the trail and someplace that would... More

what a beautiful area, plus the shops are all tax free as all money goes back in to the upkeep of the canyon . would love to have stayed longer.

I liked the easy level of the trail, the safety rails in all the right places, views on both sides WAY down, shade in a lot of places by rocks or trees, and hearing so many different accents and languages along the trail too.

Bright Angel Point takes you out on a little finger of rock straight into the canyon. The views are phenomenal.

A short walk from the North Rim lodge. You can see all the way across the canyon and even see the South Rim lodge if its a clear day.
