Best Spot at Sunset Time

The shape of the cliffs cause along with the flight of the vultures makes it a unique experience to view the sunset at this point.

This is a very popular trail, starting from the south rim. But after 1-2 hours of descending it becomes much more less crowded. It totally worth it, great pictures are taken there.

If you are at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, going to The Bright Angel Point is a "Must Do". It is a very pleasant walk from the parking lot to the point I even saw people in wheel chairs and walkers going to and from the point on the pathway. The view is spectacular!!

great trail. Views are absolutely amazing. Be careful, walk down is a breeze. Walk back is a challenge. Be thoughtful before taking this task. It is not as easy as they rate it. Many folks were really challenged on the way back. We ended up calling for help for one 73 year old who was really struggling on the way... More

From this vantage point we saw a very wide view of the canyon and all of its colorful formations. We also were visited by squirrels and various birds. They seemed a bit disappointed that we did not feed them. We were here at several times of day and noted that the colors change with the movement of the sun.

This is by far one of the best hikes into the canyon. Make sure you have LOTS of water, as there are only 2 spots on the hike where you can refill your canteens. The hike down is easy, and once you hit the indian river you're almost to the lookout. Just make sure to reserve some energy for the... More

...This is usually the first really good view of the North Rim as the trail starts beside the Grand Canyon Lodge. In about half mile, you will reach the Bright Angel Point, on the edge of the rim. The highlights of this attraction are views all the way down into the steepness of the canyon and access to a straight... More

We were dropped off here and it was our only vista from the edge (literally). Great views and a trail if you're up (down) for it. Cafe, shops and toliets are all available here.

This seems to be where most of the action is. People everywhere but still you can block them out by looking into the canyon. Plenty of benches and facilities.
